It’s not supposed to be a career
When people say minimum wage jobs are for the lazy, it doesn’t mean physically lazy. There are minimum wage jobs that require a lot of hard work and heavy lifting. There are some that only require you to fold clothes or flip a burger. None the less, with both of these jobs, it’s physical work. The jobs that are paid minimum wage are a starting job for young people who are going to college or just got out of high school. The idea of it being for 40 year old immigrants who don’t understand what you say when you order food is ridiculous. The reason minimum wage jobs pay minimum wage is because they require minimum work. If I was walking down the street, and needed someone to fold my laundry, is it safe to say that the person I selected will be able to do it? Most likely, yes. It’s a simple task that, with the proper basic training, anyone with hands can do. However, if I was to go on the street and ask someone to help my dying child who needs surgery, do you really think that many people will be able to help me? Of course not, because unlike folding clothes or flipping a burger, doctors, lawyers, architects, and many more careers require mental work. You have to think if you want to be those. That’s why these people are successful: They’re smart. So if you’re complaining about the minimum wage not being high enough, all you’re showing to anyone is that you’re too stupid to understand money and deserve to be paid minimum wage (which, btw, shouldn’t even exist, but that’s another discussion)
WOWWWWW TRY BEING A WIDOWED MOTHER OF 3 KIDS IN NEW YORK TRYING TO PUT YOUR KIDS IN SCHOOL AND FEED THEM AT THE SAME TIME. ON 7 FUCKING DOLLARS AN HOUR. FOR REAL YOU FUCKING DISGUST ME. YOU REALLY DO. AND THE PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT “LAZY” PEOPLE ON MINIMUM WAGE HAVE PROBABLY NEVER HAD TO WORK A DAY IN THEIR LIFE OR WERE PRIVILEGED OR MAKE A SHIT TON OF MONEY DOING ABSOLUTELY FUCK ALL.
You couldn’t live one month off a minimum wage paycheck. Most people who arent teenagers that work minimum wage jobs most likely do that on the side because even the current job they have that might be salaried, STILL dont give them enough to live on.
EXACTLY like shit happens, people are forced into poverty. it’s not a choice thing. minimum wage isn’t a “teen” thing. Like fuck, these damn republican shitheads are born into their money and privilege so they don’t have to face poverty or challenges. Like this makes me so angry I wanna cry in frustration.
