Why on earth cant you pump your own gas, and are you supposed to tip the guy that pumps it for you?
The reason you can’t pump your own gas, at least on the NJ Turnpike, is that is was a job creation bill. Low skilled young people were given jobs. Period.
I’d rather have them working than roaming the streets, unemployed and uneducated, which, for parts of Jersey, is the norm.
In theory, having a basic job would let those who want to, attend a college in the evening. How this has worked out, I don’t know. If anyone does, please post it here.
