Squawk of the Day - July 30, 2014

"So, I got a job working at a buffet restaurant. Felt very lucky to get employed. First week, 16 hours. Second week, four hours. Third and fourth week? Zero hours. Explanation? We don’t have enough hours for every employee to work. Am I fired? ‘No.’ Am I laid off? ‘No.’ Have I not been doing my job well enough? ‘Your work is excellent.’ So, I’ve gone from unemployed to underemployed to just left in the dark. I love you, Good Life City!"
