If Tooth Fairy Recipients get a Raise, Shouldn't Workers
The Tooth Fairy recipients will get a 23 percent increase in payouts for each tooth, which is now worth $5 a piece, and some people are thinking fast-food or low-wage workers should work for minimum wage. In some states, low earners are getting just a little above what a kid gets for a tooth. Now the owners and bosses should be the only tight asses against the $15 to $16 living wage, but I am appalled at the stupidity of some low-wage workers, who think the $15 to $16 an hour would be too much. You would think these ignorant people owned the companies. The naysayers don’t understand that the world is made up of the 99 percent and the 1 percent, and they sure as hell are not, or probably will never be, the 1 percent. The 1 percent does not need any help fighting to keep the minimum wage as it is. In fact, they would like to have it lower or none at all where you become a true wage slave. The only reason I can think of for why a ‘have very little’ would not want a $15 to $16 wage is if they are stupid, begrudging of others success, or they think they will lose their jobs. Maybe a hamburger will cost 25 cents more, either way you’re on the wrong side of this issue. All low-wage workers have very little, and need to go to the government for assistance. This is not right in a country as wealthy as ours. Do a little research and stop watching Fox News or listening to Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh and the like. The workers will win this fight and whether the naysayers like it or not, they will also profit from this fight. The fast-food workers are just the beginning of the tsunami of change. Instead of complaining about how much the fast-food workers are asking for, how about you do your part to help them reach their goal or at least shut the hell up about something you know little about. Unfortunately, there are a lot of dumbasses out there who keep voting against their own best interests and what is best for their families. Sometimes I think they are suicidal and want to martyr themselves to their GOP, anti-union bosses, who probably look at these dumbasses with total disdain. You workers, who think like the 1 percent, wake the hell up and get on the winning side. If the Tooth Fairy recipients can get a raise, shouldn’t you? If the Tooth Fairy can keep up with the cost of living, shouldn’t those companies who pay slaves wages?
