I am oppressively impoverished and have been for a very long time. I am definitely on some kind of screw over list. I know that a MAJOR change has to happen. Oppression and slavery need to stop. We need to regain control of definitions from our oppressors and stop calling everything a job which clearly isn't. If it doesn't conform to the American Ideal it is slave-labor. We need to freeze the cost of living and at the same time rise the minimum wage to get it above the poverty level and then keep it there.

Yes, raising the minimum wage would help. It'll mean that the great fast food burger deals will go away, but I'd say that a living wage is worth the trade off. Also, there should be a way to financially back up small businesses that would be negatively effected by the wage hike.
It really does make no sense that people who are working full time need to get food stamps just to stay decently fed.
They really do lie to and deceive people BIG TIME every time they raise the minimum wage because they raise the cost of living at the same time. I always dreaded it because it made us worse off. They're pissing on us and telling us it's raining

sherlew99: What a fascinating concept. Well the air above would occupy an area of space. Plus the basic word "space" is just a common term that fails to include the vast, wonderful weirdness out there between all objects out beyond our world.

sherlew99: Sorry I missed your message. Don't remember precisely what I was doing that day. Was probably doing a lot of online news reading, though. The upcoming Trump administration has me worried.
