seriously, $15/hour is barely a fucking living wage, especially if you live in a major metropolitan area. I can’t even believe that the idea of $15 a fucking hour for physical labor scandalizes some people.
I’ve worked a lot of food jobs, but large restaurant jobs are the fucking worst. I used to work as a dishwasher at Outback Steakhouse. on your feet for 10 hours at a time, scalded constantly by hot water, leaving at 3 in the morning. no lunch break, because the reasoning went that “well, you can eat while you work, so you don’t need to sit down or take a break. besides, you get to smoke a cigarette while you’re taking out that mountain of trash at the end of the night. QUIT YER WHINING.” the wage? $7/hour. after an eight-hour shift, you have enough for a tank of gas to get to work and do it all again.
if you think food service doesn’t deserve a living wage, I want to shit in your heart.
"Um, yeah, of course these leeks are organic"
"Of course my quaint little cottage in this gentrified neighborhood is built with fair trade wood"
"Crimson nirnroot? Of course you haven’t heard of it”
"Why would I have a funeral for that dead body in the background? The funeral industry of Skyrim is commercialized and insincere, her body will decay and return to Nirn just as nature intended"
I FOUND IT OMG
