Miss Alli: C- | Grade It Now!
Trade (And Intellectual) Deficits

In Josh's office, one of the laid-off employees is making his case. He says that he's well-educated, he works hard, and he's lost his job before. What's he supposed to do now? Retail? Josh tells him that Josh worked once for a Senate candidate who believed that all your benefits should be portable and follow you from job to job, because everyone would work fifteen jobs in a lifetime. He says that his feeling at the time was that nobody wanted to hear that they would have to work fifteen jobs, but now, he's starting to wonder if he should have paid more attention to that suggestion. Josh tells them that the White House cannot save their jobs, although in the long run, there will be more jobs. "The world's moving faster," he says. "We can't stop it. I wish we could." He promises to do more to prepare them for what's coming. They don't look particularly happy. He gets up to leave. "Is that a promise?" the other employee asks as Josh leaves. "No," he says. "But we're going to try." He and Donna take off, and she hands him his luggage for the trip. Outside, we see Josh loading into the van with the rest of the travelers. Fade to black.

Next week: Lockdown! Hey, maybe that's the fourth plot.
