Home Depot doesn’t send you a check to sit on your duff though. They actually expect you to work. Neither do they continue to send you a check on your 14 off, nor do they pay you to be on JH. You work half the year, get paid a traditional salary, and are still complaining???
The fact you’re only making $20/hour can only be blamed on the guy in the mirror.
Get a second job or start a business. You’re wasting half your life and opportunities on your 14 off.
