I love that the people arguing over raising minimum wage are probably people who have never had to work at minimum wage most likely while doing school and/or taking care of a family at the same time. And waiting to be promoted to a manager at the shitty fast food chain or retail shop they work at so they can live a little less shitty. Except then they’re trapped in that place much longer. Because you don’t generally “get the skills” as a Starbucks cashier to suddenly go be a stockbroker or chemist or whatever the hell. Why not let some politicians live on $8 an hour with ever-rising rent? Tear up the system? Start an experiment? Let it roll
so, so true.
