People get raises?
People get raises?
that hit me in the feels. I'm going back and forth with moving my shop to a new platform and wondering if it's all worth it but that 25 cent raise every 1000 hours doesn't make a big enough difference in my pay.

The System Has Failed
Terrell wasn't raised in the corrupt streets of Detroit. After being abused and left for dead by his violent, psychotic father, he was raised by his aunt and uncle in a loving home in the suburbs. But he never lost touch with his mother, whose selfish scheming sparked the fire that led to that fateful night when Terrell became disabled. Now that he's an adult, his tainted bloodline has other plans for the wheelchair-bound teenager.
Throwing away his silver spoon, Li'l T easily favors an oversized .40-cal he keeps tucked on his lap. With Simone, his wicked-minded mother, cosigning his every criminal move, Terrell hopes he can rise to be half the man he believes his deceased father was, even though Kamal was the one to put him in the iron-wheeled casket. A product of the system, Terrell is haunted by his past, but he's determined not to let anything stop his shine.
Love yourself enough to never lower your standards for anyone.
The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace
When author Jeff Hobbs arrived at Yale University, he became fast friends with the man who would be his college roommate for four years, Robert Peace. Robert’s life was rough from the beginning in the crime-ridden streets of Newark in the 1980s, with his father in jail and his mother earning less than $15,000 a year. But Robert was a brilliant student, and it was supposed to get easier when he was accepted to Yale, where he studied molecular biochemistry and biophysics. But it didn’t get easier. Robert carried with him the difficult dual nature of his existence, trying to fit in at Yale, and at home on breaks.
A compelling and honest portrait of Robert’s relationships—with his struggling mother, with his incarcerated father, with his teachers and friends— The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace encompasses the most enduring conflicts in America: race, class, drugs, community, imprisonment, education, family, friendship, and love. It’s about the collision of two fiercely insular worlds—the ivy-covered campus of Yale University and the slums of Newark, New Jersey, and the difficulty of going from one to the other and then back again. It’s about trying to live a decent life in America. But most all this “fresh, compelling” ( The Washington Post) story is about the tragic life of one singular brilliant young man. His end, a violent one, is heartbreaking and powerful and “a haunting American tragedy for our times” ( Entertainment Weekly).
