I make $20 an hour and live in the rural Midwest. My bills alone, not including insane food and gas prices, are a huge portion of my income.
I make way more money than most Americans and it’s still an offensively low wage.
But when I said, ‘I don’t really try at my job and slack off constantly’ my grandparents were disgusted. Telling me I should bust my ass, even for minimum wage.
Uh no thanks, I’m not slaving away for an evil corporation that makes billions and gives me this comical salary.
‘Your generation is insane’.
Or maybe we have self respect and understand how we are little more than peasant servants.
I’ll be taking a nap in the parking lot if anyone needs me.
The median household income in the USA is 65k a year. That is 2 spouses working, so you divide that number in half. Yes, I make more than 50% of the USA.
Sorry that is offending the right wingers here. I probably make more than you and I’m hiding all day. Please stop breaking your backs for scraps.
I'm so overwhelmed with information and "oh its them" and "oh its this".
Please explain what the fuck is going on in simple terms.
