bogleech: berniesrevolution: IN THESE TIMES There are 14,321 Dollar General stores in America. It鈥檚 a chain that many shoppers have never heard of, yet it has more stores than Starbucks. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Dollar General company is worth $22 billion鈥攆ar more than the nation鈥檚 largest grocery chain, Kroger, which has five times the revenue. Sadly, however, Dollar General is thriving because, as the Journal puts it, 鈥渞ural America is struggling.鈥 The chain builds stores where folks are down on their luck, where 20 percent of customers receive government assistance, and where even Walmart won鈥檛 bother doing business. I phoned several Dollar General stores and learned that none sells fresh meat or produce; the grocery aisles feature mostly canned and frozen goods. Many products, such as soft drinks, come in mini-sizes to keep unit prices low. And few locations had newspapers for sale. Maybe that鈥檚 just as well, because headlines these days report that the stock market is remarkably high and unemployment is surprisingly low. But for rural America, news like that doesn鈥檛 hit home. Things are looking up in Donald Trump鈥檚 America, except, of course, where they are not. The administration鈥檚 proudest accomplishment is a tax bill that benefits millionaires and billionaires. The Joint Committee on Taxation finds that the Senate version of the bill would increase taxes on all Americans making less than $75,000 a year. As Paul Krugman summarizes in the New York Times: 鈥淓verything this president and this Congress are doing on economic policy seems designed, not just to widen the gap between the wealthy and everyone else, but to lock in plutocrats鈥 advantages, making it easier to ensure that their heirs remain on top and the rest stay down.鈥 In rural America, where about 46 million people reside, employment and economic growth have not recovered from the last recession at a pace seen elsewhere in the nation. Childhood poverty鈥攑erhaps the most critical metric in determining a population鈥檚 well-being鈥攊s considerably higher in rural areas than in urban centers. The crisis facing rural America is rooted in the fact that peak-level employment related to natural resources, such as mining and logging, is never coming back. Rural America is mired in a permanent recession. Its problems are difficult to correct because of a sprawling landscape, scattered government support structures and what often seems to be federal indifference. Many among the predominantly white rural population voted for Trump in 2016鈥攁 sign, perhaps, of utter desperation rather than considered opinion.

Everywhere I previously lived from the east coast to the midwest, you were never more than 10 minutes from a dollar general as well as dollar tree. At Dollar Tree everything is $1, but that obviously puts some limitations on the quality and variety of goods.

Tales from Dollah Gen'ral: tsukidaisy some of the best customers l've had at Dollar General the woman who comes in every day and buys a single can of cat food. The brand she buys has the deal that if you buy 5 cans, you get them for $2. When I told her that she said "I don't need five at once. Terrence only needs one a day." The old man who came in and asked me "Why do you think McDonalds doesn't sell hotdogs?" When I told him I didn't know, he said "Well, I guess it would be hard to keep a straight face and order a McWeenie." e The teenage girl whose boyfriend held her foot up as she hopped around the store to get her things. Come to find out that she had lost her flip flop and didn't want to step on the floor with her bare foot. The elderly spanish man who comes in every day to get a pack of Marlboro Lights. His english isn't very good, so when I asked him if he wanted shorts or 100s, he looked at me confused. Realizing he didn't understand,I said "Peque帽o?" His face lit up and nodded enthusiastically. Now every time he leaves, he smiles and says "Hasta ma帽ana" and I say it back The other day when I was outside on a smoke break, he was riding on a bike and yelled "HASTA MANANAAAAAA" as he rode by . The old woman who came in and bought 24 air fresheners. I asked her if she was stocking up, and she told me about how she got a new boyfriend who lived in a mansion, and that she was putting one in each of the rooms. She then proceeded to tell me about how the mansion is haunted e The little kid who was probably around 4 or 5 who ripped open a pack of skittles. As me and the people in line watched the skittles scatter across the floor, he looked up and said. "It wasn't me." Source: tsukidaisy 10,328 notes Tales from Dollah Gen'ral
