Just call me Homer
I like burritos and knitting.
I'm a horrible blogger.
It's nice to meet you.

On and off Simmer.

I reblog things I like.

Tell me about your day.

A hundred facts (in progress).

I'll be your annoyingly quiet friend on Xbawks if you really want me to.

If you really only came for my Sims. :(

Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.

This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).

Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.

Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law

Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
So yeah dommypls and americas-liberty, learn economics.

And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves.  Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.

This is how toxic capitalism is. People think that cheap hamburgers are more important than human lives and well being. 
We live in a culture that commodifies FOOD, WATER, HOUSING, and HEALTH CARE, and that SCOFFS at the idea that everyone should be able to actually afford all of those things even if they are employed. 
We have a system where people think it is ABSURD to suggest that EVERYONE should be able to EAT.
