BUT since more workers are making more $, they have more disposable income !

With that increased disposable income, the hometown store gets more business and they have to hire Tom and Maria back !! laugh

And I sure don't see the CEOs, and mid-managers taking cuts (or turning down raises) to save a few jobs at the bottom, Dave. Nice try, no cigar !
