Harold and a pretty girl flirt with elbows in “Hey There” (1918)
"If a woman has [the right to abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t result in anyone’s death."
-Something Maine lawmaker Lawrence Lockman actually said
That fake british woman is a real bitch, but she sure can dance
“THIS ONE’S CALLED HOT POTATO! LET ME SEE YOU FUCKING KILL SOMEONE!!”
My icon is also the expression that I permanently have on my face.
saw something on facebook that really pissed me off because I worked at McDonalds for three years.
In an episode of the sitcom Roseanne from 1989 the characters talk about being paid 8 dollars an hour and how they can barely afford to live. 1989.
If you don’t believe fast food workers deserve a living wage, cook your own fucking food.
Don’t like your minimum wage? Get a better job! Go to school and learn to do something better! I made $5hr for 3 years working at Taco Bell in high school. I then worked my ass off to work my way up to a better paying job. It’s the way of the working world. Why should a fast food worker get paid the same as someone who put in years of training and effort to learn a skilled trade? All the people who currently make $15 an hr won’t be getting a higher wage so what’s to keep them from leaving their jobs to go flip burgers or do some other job that doesn’t require schooling?
People who have trade skills should be paid more than $15 an hour but the point here is that $15 is a living wage, the bare minimum of what what is required to pay essentials of adult life, we’re not talking luxury here but just to not be struggling to keep bills paid and food on the table. I don’t care what your education level is or what job you’re working, if you work 35+ hours a week you should not be struggling to get by. The cost of living has gone up at a rate that the minimum wage has not and that IS the main issue here and people want to act like having your bills paid on time and food for your family is spoiling you. People will say “fast food work is meant for teenagers” but that is just not the reality of an economy where people who have tried to better their lives through higher education commonly graduate with roughly $48,000 in student debt (a $400 a month bill you’ll be paying for the next 10 years regardless of what work you can find) and can’t land a job in their field. So where do many educated adults with families and debts they need to pay back asap end up? Working menial jobs where people basically tell them they’re work is not worth what is required to not struggle and that’s bullshit.
