I work in retail and consider it a microcosm of society. When the EBT payers outnumber the cash payers you know it’s over. I guess it’s true we must hit bottom before we can start the climb back up.
I just got back from a cruise out of port of miami. The ship was full of EPT vacationers...inner city ‘amish’
I work part-time at William-Sonoma, a high end culinary store. Last week we had a lady yelling at our manager for not accepting an EBT card for our food products. Evidently my Indonesian manager is a racist and that she ruined thanksgiving. The explanation was lost on the customer that we arent set up to take food stamps even if we wanted to.
