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
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.
I also happen to know that service workers like these kinds of machines; they don’t have to interact in the same way with customers, don’t have to hear customers yell about how that’s not what they ordered (dude, it’s on a slip, it’s what you ordered and it was definitely not a misunderstanding with the employee since you didn’t talk to them). And there’s definitely just as many (or more) employees at Wawa putting your food together at the lunch rush as there would be without the wonderful touch screen devices. So quit trying to appeal to luddites and accept that you’re being a horrible person by claiming that people you rely on a for a service don’t deserve a reasonable living wage.

Not just Americans, white people everywhere.
This map should be included in every history book.
Oh wow! I’ve been wanting this for ages!
This needs to be in every history book along with a map showing where those nations have been pushed to now.
Reblogging in “honor” of Columbus Day…
We had this in Catholic school in the 80s/90s…I found it fascinating to learn about the rich history of the Indigenous people of the Americas.
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE

everyone has said and done problematic things in their lifetime. that’s a result of the society we live in, not necessarily a reflection of their character.
what is a reflection of their character is how they react to being informed of the negativity within their behavior and statements, and whether or not they choose to change their behavior.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
this is great and all but why have i seen it 100x on my dash with no commentary on how transmisogynistic and cissexist it is
(Not all woman have boobs, not all people with boobs are women, and even people without boobs can get breast cancer. Save the person not the boobs)
Save the people not the boobs
i really need people to stop talking about mras only in terms of fedoras/being bronys/how unkempt they are, etc. because there are dudes out here looking like hollister models who need to be held just as accountable for their creepy/misogynistic behavior
and don’t get me…
Educate and advocate for transgender students’ rights!
I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I know I need to advance the main quest, but instead I faff about doing side quests because the main quest is intimidating and I don’t feel like I’ve leveled up enough to be able to handle it.
If you notice me reblogging

- TERFs or SWERFs
- other shitty people
please give me a heads up. I’ll never get angry at you for letting me know and I’ll actually be really glad that you kept me from giving some awful person more visibility.
dont get me wrong i totally fucking love how much tumblr is trying to bring awareness to bisexuality pansexuality and asexuality. but you know what else they need to bring to attention?
- people whose sexualities and romantic orienations dont line up
