- A Nasa engineer in Houston has sparked a debate on TikTok about wages in the US after revealing she was in the process of applying at Tiffany & Co and Apple for a part-time job.
- “Soo even Nasa doesn’t pay that well?” one commenter asked. “If someone who works at Nasa needs a second job I have no hope for my future,” another person lamented.
- “Capitalism has failed us when a highly skilled highly educated person who helps us go to SPACE has to get a second job,” one viewer astutely pointed out.
