You used to have a good job paying 22.50 an hour ($900/week),but you went out and got two $9/hour jobs.

The two $9/hour jobs are still not $22.50, Mitwit. it's $4.50 LESS/hour.

One $9/hour job (assuming an 8 hour day, 5 days a week) pays $360 per week

And how many hours a day can you work a day? 16?
What would both $9 jobs pay you in an 80 hour week? $720
and you'd be $180 short of what you used to make .... about $774 per month short. (using a month as 4.3 weeks)
And you're working 80 hours a week. Nice life, there. ( )
Yeah, that's how the repubes run a country.
Keep the workers under control with 80 hour work weeks and paying them less than half what they used to make.

$774/ month is a huge loss for the average working guy! And then you want to repeal Obamacare too? Nice final touch.

This is not a world I want to see.

Mitwit earns about $384,615/month. He praises the thought that the working guy should go get the two $9/hour jobs.
