Two comments had a great back-and-forth on this post (“What would you tell the 30-year-old divorcee with 30k of debt?”):
Danielle: “Uhhh I’d tell them life isnt so bad. Im 23, attached and have 85k in school loans and I cant get a job more than 14 bucks an hour. Whats my advice?”
Boomer: “Danielle – Get two jobs.”
It’s a little more nuanced, but not by much. Yes, sometimes you just need to earn more money. No, it’s not always easy. But few of us think about getting two jobs, when it’s almost always a very clear way to earn more money.

Why do so few of us think about getting a second job?
