This is an interesting game to see how you would live on limited funds.
The premise is you have to take a job to support your family.
The only option for work you are given is a low paying job without benefits of any kind.
This game follows you through the month tracking your spending.
You get your weekly paycheck and the real game begins.
The game has a number of mishaps and misadventures it presents to you.
It tracks food shopping for one.
Would you pay your electric or, water bill if you could only afford to pay one of them?
What would you give up.... watching your child in a school play or, another day of work when your funds are rock bottom and there's no food in the house?
What choices would you make?
Would you risk losing your dead end low paying job for stopping to talk to a union rep?
You have $100 in the bank.... no insurance.... you ding someone's car in a parking lot. Do you leave your name and number or, do you just leave?
Play the game.... see where you stand or, don't stand on your ethics and morals when cash is tight and it's either feed the family (or, not) and work or, go without. Or, maybe even lose your job.
There are an estimated 12.5 million unemployed right now in the US.
In Canada... it's 7.8% of the job force out of work.
These are staggering numbers.
Go play the game and see is my suggestion.
Little old me...
