Are you parents still working or are they retired? What did your parents do for a living when you were a kid? Did they both work outside the home?

I came from a American middle class family, my father started out as a laborer in the construction business.After serving in the Vietnam War. He later contracted his own business in ceramic tile installation and design. He is now retired and disabled. My mother started out working in the housekeeping department of a hospital, she later went back to school for radioly. She has worked for the same hospital in radiology for over 35 years. Hopefully she will retire soon.

My mother is retired now. When I was growing up she had several jobs, she delivered newspapers, was a waitress, worked in a casino, and as a cashier at a grocery store and at Wal-Mart.
