This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex.
WHOA WHOA WHOA.
But the minimum wage is set for teenagers with first jobs/ college students TO GET EXPERIENCE. Because a higher paying job isn’t going to higher you unless ypu have experience. AND YOU GET THAT EXPERIENCE BY WORKING AT MINIMUM PAYING JOBS. and the higher paying jobs are harder jobs which is why they get more money.
If you raise the minimum wage, then companies wont have the money to pay more employees so they look for the people with the most experience…
So if companies can only higher people with experience and you dont have any because companies DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY YOU??
well then you are never going to get a job.
And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up.
And then we have the minimum wage earners complaining again.
So stop saying that the minimum wage needs to be raised because it doesnt.
What needs to happen is we need a better economy and thanks to obama, thats not going to happen for a while because obama doesn’t know what hes doing.
So if you want to make more money, get experience and a better paying job.
You’re a shitty economist buddy.
Less than 15% of minimum wage worker’s are teenagers (age 14-19), the rest are adults aged 20 and over (85.7%). So lets stop pretending that these jobs are meant for students. The economy is shit and unfortunately, people have to settle for low wages because the alternative often is unemployment.
Higher paying jobs doesn’t equate to ‘harder jobs’. Often, the higher a position is, the less labor you are required to do.
"And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up."
Inflation doesn’t necessarily work that way. Obviously, you’re just regurgitating the bullshit theories conservatives spew out while disregarding the statistics and history that proves otherwise. But since you’re using that argument, why not raise the minimum wage with the rise of inflation? Or productivity even?
If we had raised the minimum wage with the rise of productivity since 1968, it would currently be $21.72. In other words, we are creating far more and producing more profit for corporations, while being paid for a third of what we use to.
What do you have to say about that?
And raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will raise 1.7 million families out of poverty and reduce the need for them to use public assistance, saving the federal government $7.6 billion per year. Would you say you’re you against that?
The current federal minimum wage is $7.25. In none of the 50 states is that enough money to pay the average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment.
The minimum wage used to be able to keep a family of 3 above the poverty line. Now, the minimum wage can’t even keep a single parent working 40 hours a week, for an entire year without a single day off, above the poverty line.
When you raise the minimum wage, you’re putting more money into the pockets of the lower/working class. Their money is directly put back into the economy when the buy food, pay bills and generally spend their money. As oppose to higher paid people who have the luxury of saving their earnings. That means that businesses will generally make more money because the working class has more money to spend.
That’s my argument for raising the minimum wage, I would love to see your attempt to counter it.
Tell me again why a women’s liberation movement is no longer needed.
Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…
“The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]
i hope all old white men burn in hell
Are you fucking kidding me.
"Afraid to start an affair" sounds a lot like "im probably gonna assault her" to me.
ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew men are fucking gross
The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.
The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.
In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.
"cool lol" tHEYRE ACTUALLY TESTING TO FIND OUT IF WE’RE LIVING INSIDE A COMPUTER SIMULATION AND YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT IS
They’ve done the tests, and have evidence that our universe may actually be a simulation: http://www.nature.com/news/simulations-back-up-theory-that-universe-is-a-hologram-1.14328
It’s less that we may be living within a computer simulation, but more like the foundations of our universe ( the laws of physics) are written on a lower dimensional plane, and the observable universe that we see is a projection (simulation) up onto a higher dimension.
are you telling me that
we’re in someones fucking sims game
Sirius really hated formal events. He tugged at the collar of his dress robes as he glanced at the buffet of exquisite, yet tasteless, food.
"Excuse me, Mr. Black, might I suggest the crab cakes?"
Sirius nearly grinned at the girl that had come up next to him.
She held her head high as she continued, “They’re covered with the finest gold flakes.”
"Why, thank you, Miss Beifong," Sirius boomed, "And might I offer you some caviar? I trust that you’ll find it to be most enjoyable."
"Indubitably," Toph replied.
Once they had prepared their plates, Toph asked, “Shall we waltz back to our table?”
"We shall, indeed," Sirius agreed.
Their lips twitching, the two did just that. They gracefully weaved in and out of the other guests, spinning and whirling around. At long last, they reached a table. Sirius pulled back Toph’s chair for her. She graciously thanked him before sitting down.
"I heard that the price of gold has gone up," Toph declared.
"Indeed?" Sirius asked, "I shall send my servants to the mines. Would your servants like to join them?"
"They cannot," Toph replied, "They’re too busy putting an expansion on my marble swimming pool."
"I shall accept any marble that you don’t use," Sirius cried, "My servants are going to put up a statue in my honor."
"Just think," Toph dramatically sighed, "There are people out there who don’t have statues of themselves."
Sirius shook his head and muttered, “Commonwealth.”
Toph was the first one to crack. She clutched her sides and roared with laughter. Sirius joined her within seconds, his head thrown back as he happily chuckled.
"Good to see you, Toph," Sirius brightly said.
"Good to feel you, Padfoot," Toph happily replied.
Sirius reached over the table and affectionately nudged her. She, in turn, punched him so hard that he fell out of his chair with a shriek.
Whoops I kind of ship them now.
