friends have retired from manufacturing jobs with pensions when. social service agency where percy works for eighteen years closed he was left with almost nothing yet we retire and make a return and all consume all over five because in march we'll see its wealth are. going up or if. thirty to you. we were all of time and we will hope to retire with some kind of benefits that i'm going to respect this will get a report that was swept under the carpet you know that is we're going to homes and thing this is what this country turned his back on the people that built this power then the. world no business having me again gee boy. oh shit up the bullet. when you're retiring can know that you have to worry about
how you treat and you know you take care of you ever and down and down why we can't get it because indeed it was indeed a way of you brother to make you work all your life not a system up to want to work for you but that's not capitalism capitalism broke out it's a little mean for you. percy's temp agency has moved him to a janitorial position at a family owned machine shop he now makes ten dollars and fifty cents an hour.
i pass and give me anything there was a thing i got. i had to work. don't steal to me to work my mother father how he had to work my father had to go out into the cotton fields and pick cotton or. things like that. i feel blessed because the neuron of my can do is much of that do. i got a lot of the right to send my wrist. but we still try to keep the house. so i'm going to keep on working.
on the other then i suppose what larry i said i think. i do like to start out with just going over the deed there the documents that lets the world know you bought this house and this is how much you pay for it were ours and was true twenty or. so our total price at the end of the day of purchasing the house that's what i guess was and i also have a question is. three twenty eight three twenty now ok so three thirteen plus your five plus that that equals this right are you with me your total price is three hundred twenty three thousand and eighty eight dollars and forty seven cents yeah i mean now i'm like oh man because we were fixated on the three thirteen seven hundred i guess you know because of the closing i love you have to add in closing costs so you're going to prepay your seventeen is that your conservative reality that yeah ok i'm sorry three thousand seven hundred that's still a lot of what i have right that's what i read although you know you're on
a year anyway as money because they started to get a little high. having a v.a. loan to not pay a settlement. we've seen at me like this. he's ok this is just the way he is dead of are he think that all the time right. everybody's like cracking jokes and just like most on the paper i wasn't angry i was seriously that was a serious moment. i'm trying to figure out what i'm signing for the oh this is just this is this it's ok so many freakin people were going there you don't know what you're reading you know which you're signing a moment when it's a when she bought her house she had a lawyer with her. this document here it's called the truth in lending this document is the scary one this tells you over the life of the loan how much you're going to pay for the loan so.
i don't think that's a big deal but i mean i thought that. take good care of these things i would like. that. my husband were all right. here right there on. the first to congratulate you as new homeowners thank. you. very much. for your ideas and i hope and over the. health of. you know i know you are your crowd. got that right.
so there isn't one of them to put it but i say the over the tone of some sentiment is. what. put it on to discipline somehow into something. he had been paying me who cannot. pay me who put them into this good seat in d.c. to medicine of the city is this little. hilton gave his two weeks notice to the food service contractor at google today he's traveling across town to pick up his final paycheck. i'm able to move the other one and go. oh i'm biased by savile now which. many say all this time of day was comparable barbara needed when i saw them and they put the check out of course for a one off and let's. see.
if i make my is how i see. them but if he won't. my health. not a form of this question. but i know enough into office and ask for money. but also i want to help. someone to. be admiral mike and i. now that he only has one job helton is counting on a promotion to junior manager at sweet tomatoes. first he must pass
a food safety exam which he has already failed once he's on his way to take it again she was a little. down. i told him i said used to pass the tests whatever it takes it's not easy was. a lot of. problems with the denson. his job is mistrust and sometimes where we start you only thirteen dollars in sales a lot you know paying bills in give. you say fifteen dollars wouldn't change a one. our. i
we were living paycheck to paycheck no one knew we were struggling no one knew what was going on because we've always pay our bills we've always had our kids stress right. we still live check to check. getting better money there's just so many bills to pay. everything is not always going to go as sweet as you want it's ago it's always going to be. we're just a family dish trying to make it every day off no parts. or young we're just trying
hello there we're still seeing a few showers over queensland but nothing out of the ordinary anyway so just one or two shopper ones around the coast but nothing like that those that we've seen over the last two weeks or so couple will showers are likely here as we head through the next few days but the main area of low pressure the one that causes all our problems is now running away towards the east taking the worst of the weather with it out towards the western force in perth it staying very hot so the maximum temperature of around thirty seven or thirty eight degrees still over the next few days still incredibly hot for us then the temperatures in melbourne are rising but not that high they'll get to around twenty five degrees and that's because the rain
we have. is slowly clearing away and it's working its way towards new zealand you can see the cloud already on the satellite picture here and it's going to give us some rather heavy rain is it gradually pushes its way northward that's going to bring us a relief to the dry spell that we're currently seeing and should help with the fight against those wildfires as well vulcan should stay dry on sunday with a top temperature of twenty five degrees now as we head up towards the northern parts of asia it's pretty cold for us in tokyo at the moment so saturday's maximum just one degree they could be some snow around as well that system will gradually clear is that was we had through sunday and then the temperatures in tokyo would bounce back up they should get to around six or seven on sunday. and faints can tell a story without uttering a single. unconventionality of like. witness through the lens of the human eye. on how to zero.
