so like there are actually people out there who think that us poor people like to go and take all the available minimum wage jobs so no one else can have them, so like if you’re working multiple minimum wage jobs they’d say you’re job hoarding. because you know they think that we’re greedy and could obviously live on one minimum wage job, which is false we, for the most part in most of the country, cannot.
Yep, just us greedy poor people taking all the jobs from everyone else. we just like having lots of jobs. I mean this is why I like posting this bullshit graph on minimum wage which I’m not going to do because I can just explain it. so basicallyy if minimum wage was at equilibrium, [a livable wage where work is equal to pay essentially] people wouldn’t need to work fucktons of jobs to survive.
But because minimum wage is wayyyy below equilibrium [that livable wage] people either need multiple jobs if they can manage it or they need government aid or they’re fucked in some other way. [no home, or food or something, lots of homeless people have jobs] so on
so yeah. basically it’s rich people saying that the fault is not with the system but with the poor, once again.
Classists: Quit mooching. If you can’t afford stuff, just get another job.
