The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
sometimes I kiss people I shouldn’t kiss and let them unbutton my jeans sometimes I leave English class without asking and walk in angular circles until I can hear the blood rushing under my skin sometimes I run until I can’t breathe sometimes I sit in the rain sometimes I sleep for six hours in the middle of the day
sometimes I drive too fast and listen to my music so loud that it hurts sometimes I drink until everything goes black and I don’t remember talking about you all night (even though I do)
sometimes I cry about books and about people who died hundreds of years ago sometimes I don’t cry even though I want to more than anything sometimes I ignore the people I love sometimes I hold myself to keep everything in because you are not here to do it
sometimes I think I’m alive sometimes I think I probably never will be
It’s 2089. all cops have been replaced by genetically modified dogs that let children pet them, help old ladies cross the street, chase down criminals, never eat donuts, bark at cat-callers, analyze dna, easily track down murders, pee on white collar criminals, and tear the faces off of rapists. utopia has been reached.
How was this accomplished you ask? Well its simple Dogs are colorblind
When it comes to job creation, Scott Walker has been pathetic. He talks a great game, but he’s just pathetic. Here are some fast facts from PRWatch:
In June 2014, CMD did an analysis that showed that the Wisconsin Economic Development Authority, Walker’s flagship jobs agency which he chairs, had only created 5,800 jobs in the past three years. During the same period Wisconsin’s WARN database indicates that 13,000 jobs were lost to plant closings and mass layoffs. Federal data puts Wisconsin in the 37th spot of all 50 states for new job creation and dead last among its Midwestern neighbors in job creation.
The question at hand in this segment is the minimum wage, which Scott Walker has managed to duck quite adeptly in his first pass while deflecting onto the endless possibilities for minimum wage workers to improve their lot by attending community or technical colleges.
I want someone to really want me. Make a big deal about me, tell me I’m on your mind way too fucking much but you kinda like it. Make it completely obvious that I’m the person you want. Tell me you can’t wait to see me; show me how you feel so I can feel it too. Make me feel something I’ve never felt before. Tell your friends about me & I’ll tell them about how you make butterflies swam my stomach. Want me as much as I want you.
This girl in one of my classes was getting Starbucks before class and she had her headphones in and while she was waiting for her drink, this guy she didn’t know pulled out one of her headphones and said “hey how are you?” So she put her headphone back in and he pulled it out again and said “um… did you hear what I said?” And she put her headphone back in and he got all pissed off. When she told me this, my blood was boiling.
THIS is what misogyny looks like. Men invading the personal space of women and getting pissed when they don’t respond politely.
