Why we support the fast food strikes, in one simple infographic:
"Well if they’re that old and still working in fast food they should have made better life decisions. I went to college and they should have too.”
Everyone that talks to me about this is of the mindset that “Well they shouldn’t be making that much to work in fast food!” when the argument being made is that NOBODY IS MAKING ENOUGH MONEY. Wages haven’t kept up with inflation and people in the middle class are COMPLETELY OKAY WITH THAT. The change has to start at the bottom, because no one wants change at the top.
So now the folks making $40k+ a year are saying “Well fuck them, I’m doing just fine.” It’s an absolutely toxic way of thinking, and it’s an absolutely American way of thinking. “Fuck you, I got mine.”
