Before my husband lost his job he was making less a year than most teachers. Working at least as many hours a week, if not more and not nearly the number of days off, so no, I don't feel bad about not contributing to the collective pot. He has a new job where he makes a little more on paper, but being in a higher tax bracket, being paid once a month instead of every other week, and the rising cost in insurance, his take home pay is about the same, so we take care of our own. We cannot afford more.
