    I read this in our NYTimes.  It left me feeling sad that someone works that hard  for $125.00  a day.

    Greymo, if this story makes you sad your really going to be sad to find out almost all cooks don't even make $125.00 a day. This is where the food/restaurant business has been unfair to the wages paid to kitchen staff. The cooks work their butts off making the food and the waitstaff get 15 to 20% tip for delivering the meal.

    Don't be sad. He could be back in his homeland and in far worse shape.

    Mr. Ahmed’s son, Kowshik, who dreams of working for NASA, will be a high school senior in the fall, and Mr. Ahmed wants all his children to go to college.
     
     On the train, he learns that a preschool has accepted his daughter.
     
    Every year, they save money so Ms. Akter can take the children to visit relatives in Dhaka in the summer. But last week, she suggested that they plan a Caribbean cruise for the six of them instead. Mr. Ahmed didn’t think they could afford that kind of vacation, not to mention so much time away from his cart.
     
    I see this as being the "All American dream" come true. This man has a great family and both him and his wife work. This is almost a must in todays world. They save and plan vacations. They want their kids to have a college education. The All American dream, $125 a day, living free. I bet there's a few billion people in the world that could only dream of having this kind of life.

    I can tell you in New Orleans there are hundreds of cooks working for $8-10 per hour. If you ran an ad for a cook offering $15 per hour you would have a landrush on your hands.
