    • The "work harder till you get ahead" is capitalist propaganda. Take it from someone who is actually getting ahead. No amount of hard work will EVER make up for having the right connections

    • I used to work in poverty ministries. Work harder or work more hours is some of the worst advice you can give. Make yourself more valuable. Its not what you can do that determines your wages, its what you can negotiate.

    • If possible, work more hours at one job instead of scattering your hours around. 40hrs at one job and 40 at another gives you 80rs pay. But 60hrs at one job also gives you 80hrs pay. (If they allow overtime)
