"The number of married men (spouse present) with jobs declined in March, while the number of married women (spouse present) increased for the month. Count this as a win for women’s rights, the video game industry, and marijuana." Subscribing to the newsletter is worth it for just that. I am still laughing about it. I think, however, a darker reason for this is that some men are willing to play "chicken" longer. They know the rent isn't going to be paid if someone doesn't start working (in some cases TWO jobs) and they are betting that their wives aren't willing to wait until there's an eviction going on. That topic, however, is a different newsletter.
