Burger King, Clothes, and Food: Burger King Worker DENMARK UNITED STATES S20 an hour 5Weeks paid vacation Pension Plarn Doesn't have to struggle to get by. $9an hour No paid vacation No Pension Plan Has to choose between buying food or clothes. fightfor15.org fb.com/fightfor151@fightfor15 iopele: queerspeculativefiction: heidiblack: pillowswithboners: luchagcaileag: This isn’t because Burger King is nicer in Denmark. It’s the law, and the US is actually the only so-called “developed” country that doesn’t mandate jobs provide a minimum amount of paid vacation, sick leave, or both. kinda debunks that claim that they can’t afford to pay their workers those sort of wages and still make a profit Its corporate greed, plain and simple. It is the same in Sweden. It is so funny every time an american company opens up offices here and then tries to do it the american way and all the unions go “I don’t think so”. Like when Toys ‘r Us opened in sweden 1995. They refused to sign on to the union deals that govern such things as pay/pension and vacation in Sweden. Most of our rights are not mandated by law (we don’t have a minimum wage for example) but are made in voluntary agreements between the unions and the companies. But they refused, saying that they had never negotiated with any unions anywhere else in the world and weren’t planning to do it in Sweden either.  Of course a lot of people thought it was useless fighting against an international giant, but Handels (the store worker’s union) said that they could not budge, because that might mean that the whole Swedish model might crumble. So they went on strike in the three stores that the company had opened so far. Cue a shitstorm from the press, and from right wing politicians. But the members were all for it, and other unions started doing sympathy actions. The teamsters refused to deliver goods to their stores, the financial unions blockaded all economical transactions regarding Toys ‘r Us and the strike got strong international support as well, especially in the US. In the end, Toys ‘r Us caved in, signed the union deal, and thus their employees got the same treatment as Swedish store workers everywhere. The right to be treated as bloody human beings and not disposable cogs in a machine. and that story right there? is exactly why Republicans in the US work so hard to bust unions. it’s because unionizing WORKS and they’re terrified of workers actually having some power.

A Dream, Crazy, and Fucking: mister-smalls Petition to sit down all the people who make coma theories about Adventure Time and tell them "listen, this fucking show is about the last human living in a post-apocalyptic world where deadly magic has been reawakened following a global thermonuclear war that wiped out the rest of the human species, how much fucking darker do you want it to be" Even though I thought my first Creative Writing professor was kind of a douche he made a good point about this. One of our first assignments was to write in this eerie, otherworldly style (we were mimicking a specific author whose name escapes me), so we had to write about eerie otherworldly things happening. Its no exaggeration to say that more than half the class had a "big reveal" where we find out that the story's strange events and themes are all in the mind of some person in an insane asylum, or someone having a drug trip. My professor said something like, "you just successfully wrote a world that feels separate from our own, but got frightened last minute and shoe- horned in normalcy. You showed that you were afraid to commit to something different and interesting." Though I'm typically a contrarian and a piece of garbage, I am inclined to agree with my professor. I feel like people who write coma theories and the like are afraid to accept that the world of the story is separate from our own. They like everything wrapped up in this crazy little realism box where nothing out of the ordinary happens in fiction. mister-smalls you win the Best Addition to a Post prize Thank you :) This pretty well hits the nail on the head as to why I generally hate coma/dream theories and people who think they're so fucking deep for coming up with it. In my book its LAZY, plain and simple judiops I think the only times I can think of where lt was all a dream really works are in pieces like Over the Garden Wall, Ink, Coraline, and Mirrormask. In all of those the characters wake up again in their normal world, but there's a very strong implication that the dream world is as real, if not more so, than the real world, and the things they did in the dream world had a very direct impact on the waking world-not in an "Tm gonna be a better person" sense, but literally who lives and who dies at the end of the story Notably, in most of those, its stated flat-out within the first couple of minutes that the character in question is dreaming. It's not a big reveal, it's a fundamental detail of the setting If you're gonna do a dreamworld, actually commit to doing a dreamworld. Whatever it is you do, ACTUALLY COMMIT TO IT.

Being Alone, Ass, and Doctor: ONE DAY GOD WILL BEG ME TO DIE, AND I SE Follow @CARRIONIER Both my parents were drug addicts who beat me. My father tried to kill me twice. I was a homeless teen and went hungry. I was raped as a teen. I have bipolar disorder. I didn't shoot up a school; I became a doctor. This man is a white male terrorist, plain and simple. AJC @ajc Nikolas Cruz is a 'broken child' who's sorry about Parkland shooting, attorneys say on-ajc.com/2sxABFi kelpforestdweller: the-underground-hufflepuff: cookbookkitten: The usual, “he’s a troubled kid/man” yawn excuse. His ass is a terrorist and we will keep having them because of guns and the fact that this shit is not taken with seriousness. Yes, we mourn the victims and it’s all on the news, but (when it’s a white male, as it usually is) it’s always blamed on troubles and mental illness. Those things alone don’t cause it because MANY, MANY people have mental illnesses and grew up troubled, yet they are not out there, killing or shooting anyone. STOP PAINTING THESE TERRORISTS AS TROUBLED, SAD, MISGUIDED HUMANS. STOP MAKING MENTAL ILLNESS EVEN MORE STIGMATIZED. THESE TERRORISTS ARE MONSTERS, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. group chats of his were uncovered where he talked about wanting to kill people based solely on their race and sexual orientation. this was totally premeditated. and intentional.  you can say antisemitism, it’s allowed. yes, racism and homophobia and a whole gallery of bigotries, but let’s also not keep silent on this one.

Af, Bless Up, and Crazy: The girl we groomed today would hold onto anything you handed her. Imma keep it 600 with y’all. I struggled badly with this account for a hot minute in the past couple weeks and I had to reflect deeply in my heart as to whether or not to keep this ting going. I derive zero financial rewards from this. It’s an outlet, plain and simple, for my cray cray, and so my reward is the sweet release of talking my sh!t and seeing y’all get entertained, while sometimes pointing y’all to some good causes worthy of your money 🙌. And that’s been worth the world to me. I’m thankful to God for placing Faith in my heart. I’m thankful for Family. I’m thankful for my job and the roof over my head. I’m thankful for my dear friends. And on this day I’m especially thankful for you. Every one of you. Y’all have become Family. If I don’t post in a minute, y’all start messaging asking if I’m ok. When I started posting like normal again I got dozens of messages saying “good to have you back”. When I post something funny y’all are quick with the love. When I say something sideways y’all are quick (AF 🤗) to correct me and point out my ignorance (I am pleased to report that my comment section is one of the biggest collections of strong, independent women on earth. Never change! 😍) We exchange ideas and concepts like mature grown adults. It’s a level of discourse that has vanished from the political sphere since the Cheeto took over so I’m glad it exists on a pupper page where the half (maybe full!) crazy admin talks about Punani and other lofty, intellectual things 😍😂. God bless y’all! I love u the long way! Ya get me! Bless up! 😍😂😂😂
