Long hours, late hours: a local coffee shop owner, 3rd generation immigrant family, understands the pressure to get by. He and his employees, working hard, working fast, working for little.
I see more people among our employees that need to work more hours, take a second job. Everybody has more expenses. The cost of living has certainly gone up. Not many people that work here can buy a house. This is certainly lower middle class, working in a diner.
