How Modernization Has Changed Life
When you have constant access to the internet, that means you can constantly work and that also means that your employer can constantly contact you and expect a really quick response.
The problem with that is that you're working more and probably getting paid the same. You're not able to create the true American dream that you want, because you might have your white picket fence and you might have your fully loaded SUV, but you're working so much to pay for those things. It's awful when you're a salary worker because you get paid the same no matter how many hours you work, and sometimes you have to work until the job gets done. Which is the case in our household for my husband. It's a salaried job.
