This photo was inspired by a few friends who are recent college graduates and work in the consulting or investment banking fields. While they make good salaries, they are 'expected' to work weekends and nights until 9 or 10 o'clock for no overtime doing grunt work so that they can 'get ahead'.

Yeah, there is no adam's apple cause I had to use myself as the model, having no available male model at the time I had the idea for the picture. Thanks to Macy's for generously letting me 'borrow' the clothing :-)

Creative. It has a nice message which even would work without the title.

I like the limited colours and shapes in this and the stickers are clever.

creative and interesting, unlike most in this week's challenge

what a skinny chap. looks like his shirt is too big for him .. maybe's too young for so much responsibility? they have labor laws! God Save the Children! (And the Queen). Looks lik ehe needs to trim up his short hairs too. And what a big huge tie knot. This feller needs a mentor. Someone to take him under their wing. Otherwise he's going to end up living in a hamster cage working for old lettuce. As for the photo: needs a bounce on the camera right to fill in the shadows a hair. I'd have put the neck sticker on the light side, too, and put a period after the last 9. mag 99

I like it, I sold myself into slavery for 6.50 an hour.

Funny shot! (at $500, if he can file, I'll buy him! Wait, how much does he cost in room and board? Will you negotiate down to say...$300?) Well shot and composed. This one grows on you. Started out as a 7, but it's your lucky day! How about 8, instead? Swash

Kind of a high price for a slave, don't you think?
