    It’s possible she changed jobs since then. You need part-time help at a restaurant mainly in the evening, whereas a coffee shop does its biggest business during the day, and Alex might prefer being home in the evening.

    In any event, good to know that those PhDs are good for SOMEthing.

    GT is having problem with continuity.
    The November 19 strip clearly shows Alex working as a waitress in a full service restaurant, not as a barista in Starbucks. At least, I have never seen a Starbucks like that.

    It’s possible she quit the waitressing job and got the barista job for the benefits.

    Alex may need to hire an illegal to take her place.

    My guess is that someone with a PHD from MIT would have no problem finding a job. If she had a degree in 16th century art yes, but a PHD from MIT?

    Maybe she changed jobs for the better benefits

    The more technical your degree, the more they usually want a year’s experience to go with it. That’s why an internship is also important.

    A part time job offers THOSE benefits? What are you smokin’, GT, and why aren’t you sharing?

    For starters, many cab drivers in Cuba are PhDs – goes to show that systems may be more similar than they appear…

    Must be Trudeau doesn’t have the guts to show the real PhDs that can’t find work. Namely liberal arts PhDs. Got a friend with one in Archaeology, if you can’t teach it or get a dig you don’t work.
