Don’t you just hate circular logic? You can’t get a job unless you have experience, and of course how do you get experience without a job? You can’t get a promotion unless you’re assigned higher level work, which you won’t be at your current level, and any thing you do is at your current level by definition. Tix works her ass off playing organ at church but her pay seems not to at all related to how well she does the job, but to little check boxes on a piece of paper. One of my pet peeves is people who conveniently use little check boxes and heirarchical power structures as an excuse to avoid doing what is right and just. Who is taking bets on whether the Marjean the accounts lady has even been to a service that Tix played for? You will see this theme pop up again with different twists in this comic because I really have a bug up my butt about it. The huge irony is that churches are always ranting about exploitation of the poor and powerless. My fluorescent white ass! Maybe they should read and heed the book of Deuteronomy.
