What are we fighting for?
I was just on the phone to MeMum, yesterday, about the minimum wage in the States. She was stunned that folks are forced to get by on $7.50 an hour.
She was even more stunned when I told her that that’s what some folks are fighting to get.
It’s pretty bad when you have to explain to a grandmother that the richest country on Earth, filled with the most gazillionaires, “can’t afford” to pay the people who work the hardest enough money to live on.
Seriously. If the richest people in the US took a 10% pay cut, they wouldn’t even notice the difference.
I swear, if it gets any worse, UNICEF will step in and try to get rich Americans to sponsor starving children in America.
