    @panderp If they were only making minimum wage, then wouldn't they qualify for government health insurance?  Then technically their monthly health insurance expense is $0. ;-)

    Why would you want to create a system in which government dependence is necessary? *winky face ew* 

    Why shouldn't it be that they work a full-time job and can afford healthcare appropriately?

    Uh, no. Medicaid doesn't cover you just because you are poor.

  • Also, I find it incredibly ironic that so often those who oppose raising the minimum wage to a living wage are the same people who bitch about the abuse of the welfare system.

    Can't have it both ways people.

  • I've never made over $16.75/hr, and that was brief and good. I've made as little as $12/hr. this is all professionally, post college, in law firms. If minimum wage goes up then I'm never going back to a professional life again. Sign me back up for retail. Because I know none of those jobs would increase their salaries just because of a minimum wage increase. If I could not return to an office environment that would be lovely.

  • Look, I am totally willing to pay more for my chicken nuggets if that's what it takes.  Don't care.


    What if....and I'm just spitballin' here....what if you paid the same for chicken nuggets, but the 1% paid more in taxes that could fund health care for everyone as well as lots of other programs that could help people out of poverty?  Hell, I'll even pay more on my taxes for that, and I am not the 1%.

  • I hate that people only sell "pack and plays now" instead of just calling them what they are. An f'ing playpen. I went to buy one for a baby shower and I finally had to break down and ask someone where the playpens were and I got this massive incredulous look of horror. He's like "they don't make playpens anymore, that's just cruel". Ok, I LOVED my playpen and my mom got shit done. God forbid. (And now they just call them something else anyway)

    Huh.  I thought they were called pack and plays because that's what Graco calls theirs, and theirs are the most popular.  Kind of a Kleenex or Chapstick kind of thing.  I didn't know "playpen" was a bad word now.
