a dream downsized

It often seems that when some people’s dreams are shrunken, they blame others they don’t think are entitled to having that same dream — rather than profiteers who look like them (and therefore look like they deserve respect, empathy and such).  But, anyway,  these thoughts from Tonya are one interesting take on the shrinking of a dream:  “To say people will be happy living on less and having less, almost excuses companies for standing so stern to the unlivably low minimum wage and choosing bigger profits rather than adequate wages for their employees. It’s like saying don’t worry so much that you aren’t and probably won’t ever reach what’s becoming the unreachable American Dream, because we’re moving away from that idea anyway….”
