Maine: Maurice Gauthier #40dollars

What does $40 mean to you?
$40.00 dollars is 1/4 of my electric bill,one weeks gas to get to work, 1/4 of my weekly food budget for my wife,my son and I. Just look at the cost of all things and you can see our pay is too low to just live and only paying our bills to live in our homes and not buy anything to have fun or even buy a house just barely supporting our family.
