America’s most common job?  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, working as a Retail salesperson at a big-box store is very common but it pays about half of the national average wage. There are roughly 4.3 million Retail salespeople working at a big box store. America has more retail salespeople than Kentucky has citizens.  BTW: American’s No. 2 job – the cashier.  http://money.msn.com/now/post.aspx?post=57cd1fc8-2184-4018-807d-21aa30851e2b

Food Blogger from Charlotte is taking on one of America’s largest food companies, pushing to remove artificial dyes from Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.  Vani Hari is specifically concerned with ingredients called Yellow #5 and Yellow #6, which she said are made from petroleum and can cause a long list of illnesses and medical conditions.  Vani runs a food blog called “The Food Babe” from her Charlotte condo. Nearly 300,000 people have signed her online petition calling for Kraft to pull artificial ingredients from the mac and cheese. http://triad.news14.com/content/top_stories/692526/charlotte-food-blogger-taking-on-kraft-over-dye-in-mac-and-cheese
