Did you hear the happy news? Dollar General stores will hire 6,000 people this year. Yes America, hiring is back!
Actually, curb the enthusiasm. This isn't the stuff that robust middle class recoveries are made of. According to Payscale.com, the Dollar General chain pays its assistant managers $9.22 an hour and store managers $11.51 an hour. Cashiers and sales associates make barely over minimum wage.
Is this the road to recovery?
