The employees have responded by saying, "What about us? You think it's cheap to live in New York City?" It is not. Many of us are drawn here from across the country to live in this beautiful, disgusting cultural center of the universe. Many of us came armed with college degrees in art and literature and the load of debt we took on to pay for them. (That's a story for another comic.)

Wouldn't Duane Reade be a better store if each employee had a degree in pharmacology?
