100 word challenge "27%" by RedGoddess
At 6:00pm, Lola hears the harmonious chorus of church bells. She arrived home from her hotel job with sore feet and aching back. She plopped down in front of a small tv. Her grandmother is out for bingo night at the community center. Her siblings are also MIA. She turns the tv on and immediately hears the newsanchor reports, "unemployment is still in the double digit and the President has not provided his new job recovery plan." I'm lucky to have a job in this economy, Lola thought. Looking at her paycheck, she realizes her wages have been reduced by 27%.
