It's Tough

A 22-year old grad who started the BofA debit protest online laments being underemployed and making only $400 a week.

I'd like to point out, similar job options were available to me and my peers after we finished film school several years ago. It sucks very much. The element that can make all the difference, however, is the future opportunities available. In the film biz, people take these ridiculously low paying jobs with the promise of learning skills, jumping around, and finding ways to get ahead. I don't know about the non-profit sector or whatever the heck she is working in, but I doubt there is a similar promise of future riches.
