Unfortunately, $40 is a tremendous amount of money to many families right now.
It is 2/3 tank of gas or it is a child's hot lunch at school for 3 weeks.
And let's not forget that most families (provided neither have lost their jobs) are two income families, which means $80 a week.
That's $346.66 a month.
No, my math isn't wrong, and if you had a family you struggled to feed, you'd understand why.
$346/mth is pretty close to two weeks of groceries for a family of four, if shopped right.
Trust me, I KNOW that is a fact.
$346 is easily a car payment, and then some.
$4160 ($80x52 weeks) is several mortgage payments, which could end up being the difference between having a roof over your head or not.
