When people say that minimum wage jobs are stepping stones to better employment and therefore don’t need to be raised, this is what they’re really saying.
‘its unskilled labor’ they sayit still needs to be fucking done and you sure as hell aint doin itlets assume for a minute that everyone had a college degree, was intelligent and well suited for any job they want and thus could get any job they wanted. it would be nice, although some people would already have an objection somehowbut pizzas still have to be delivered, floors still have to be mopped, store shelves still need to be stocked, assembly lines need to be operated, busses need to be driven, lawns need to be mowed, food needs to be grown and harvested, trucks need to be unloaded, and customers ringed up at the cash register. you do not want to live in a world where those things are not being done, for it is a world that will no longer function. people doing those jobs deserve to be compensated for their efforts enough to live comfortably because they are making the world work just as much as whatever person is making two grand a day sitting in status update meetings, the asshole who decided teen titans go is the only show cartoon network needs, the old guys in suits who have a two hour show talking about sportsball, or the talking poop sculpture that decided to jack up the price of life saving medication by 600%. you know, all the people -really- contributing to society who ‘earned’ their dumptrucks of money the hard way
Plus i dont know about you but all these rich fucks that say “its unskilled labour” can’t cook worth a damn so how is fast food cook not a skill? Got to learn to cook right?
