Last Saturday, fast-food workers held a convention in Villa Park, Illinois whereby they voted to unionize and collectively demand a $15 per hour wage.
I hear all these complaints from these people, and the first thing that pops into my head is: whoa, check your privilege, burgerbros. The thing is, fellas, we already have a minimum wage in America: it’s called being a woman. Wow. Think about that for a second.
You trim the fat. You fire the average workers. You promote your best junior analyst to an executive and make them exempt. Then you go poach more executive talent hires who are more experienced and can get the work done faster.
Raising the minimum wage would give our economy much more bang for the buck than we get from the financial industry’s yearly windfalls.
This would raise the wages of 16.5 million people just like you.

13. Yes I would love a beer but I am unable to accept it because I am a delivery DRIVER.
Gracefully accept your position in life and know that if you don’t step on anyone’s toes, and don’t act up, someday, you might be able to afford yourself a better situation.
I’ve caught two teenagers fucking inside the theater for ‘The Crazies.’ Sort of poetic, really.
Minimum wage is currently at $7.25. And let it stay there!
