I think I’ve seen this post on Tumblr before awhile ago, but it’s making the rounds on Facebook again right now, and I think it’s important, so I’m going to repost it here.This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
seriously, woo for this.
I may have reblogged this already but it is still relevant to my life so here it is again
Disney used to be on point. Idk wtf that Shake It Up and A.N.T Farm crap is. Even second generation Disney had SOME core to it; Early Hannah Montana, Early Suit life of Zack and Cody and Wizards of Wavery Place. Even Sonny with a chance was ALRIGHT. Now they’re just getting desperate.That’s so Raven taught things like ^THIS. Now the only thing Disney talks about is boy crushes. Lizzie McGuire had a variety of different episodes, And one episode was even about Miranda having an eating disorder. Something SERIOUS that people can ACTUALLY relate to.Then there was Phil Of The Future and Even Stevens- Mainly for entertainment as opposed to teaching moral lessons, But at least they were creative and entertaining. This new crap is just pathetic.
