Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level.
This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity.
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs).
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

holy fucking shit omfg literally the cutest thing ever I’m actually dying I ship this so hard this is just so perf and adorable and omg awwwhhsjhdkajsdmxjhdifI AM CRYING OH MY GOD THAT WAS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER WATCHED AW AW AW
okay I need all of my friends to watch this asap
not only for the pure adorableness of it
but it sucessfully shows something that a lot of my american friends don’t really fully understand
brazilians are come from a /very/ physically affectionate culture. Like do you see when curly dude dropped off blind dude and the girl for the first time? they kissed on the cheek. that is normal. and when he had his head in her lap and she was playing with his hair? normal.
you see I come from a culture that you hug first and ask later and physical contact is pretty dang important in forming relationships whether they be friendships or romantic or you just frigging met them.
some of my friend have realized this, but some have trouble wrapping their heads around it (one thought I was dating my another friend for two years due to this)
THAT PART WHERE SHE SAYS SHE HAD TROUBLE GETTING OUT OF HER GRANDMA’S PARTY BECAUSE OF HER AUNTS
NO SHE WAS NOT JUST TRYING TO SAVE FACE. my brazilian friends and i always joke when our parents are saying they’re going to leave a party because we know we have at least 30 minutes to keep hanging out while the adults to say goodbye/finish talking to everyone. and GOD HELP YOU IF YOUR FAMILY IS THERE YOU WILL TELL EVERYONE YOU’RE LEAVING AT ELEVEN BUT YOU WON’T UNTIL 3 IN THE MORNING I’M NOT KIDDING
AND WE FINNALY GOT REGCONIZED FOR SOMETHING GOOD.
There is that old adage that states, “If there is a will, there is a way.” A combination of learned experience, passion and hardwork is needed to succeed in life. Here I define success as being able to survive the ongoing struggles amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. Excuses…
