    No it's not you. And it's because it's Gatehouse. 'Nuff said.

    If I were looking, the only jobs I'd even consider taking are the Brockton and Fall River ones, and that's because they have some modicum of protection through the local guilds.

    Otherwise, you're talking about sweatshop-style conditions.
