Luisa: Are you still here? I thought you got off at 3:00.

Max: I picked up a second shift. I could use the money.

Luisa: But I thought you had another part-time job in the evenings.

Max: I normally do, but the restaurant where I work has been cutting back my hours, so I’m trying to pick up as many extra shifts here as I can.

Luisa: And don’t you work at the amusement park on the weekend?

Max: I do half the year, but it’s winter and the park only keeps a skeleton crew on during these months. In the meantime, I’m working for a temp agency, which gives me short-term assignments.

Luisa: I don’t know how you juggle all these jobs.

Max: I have no choice. I have to piece together an income if I want to pay rent.

Luisa: Have you ever thought about going back to school to qualify for other work, something full-time?

Max: Sure, all the time. I’d like a better job, one with benefits and a reliable salary.

Luisa: What’s stopping you?

Max: I have to pay for something called “food,” and I haven’t met my fairy godmother yet!
