Don’t feed the troll, people. (Or is it McTroll?)
There’s a difference between “appealing to emotion” and what is going on here. It’s not just one sob story. This is a problem in most regular jobs. It has nothing to do with education or intelligence. If they didn’t make a lot of money per person, the place as a whole would fail.
Face it, bub, without the average “unskilled” worker, these places wouldn’t exist. They are necessary. I’m not going into an argument over abstinence and sex education and all of that shit because as far as I’m concerned overall, it’s irrelevant. Even without two kids she wouldn’t be able to live off of those wages. It’s ridiculous. Not everyone can have some “hoity-toity” 60 hour a week, $12.50 an hour job sitting at a desk, or being management or some shit. Get fucking real.
While I question the intelligence of a lot of people, does that really allow you to say that they basically deserve to be homeless? A lot of them are as stupid as you say simply because they either come from families that couldn’t afford anything so they too had to take a job early just to chip in for food a other necessities. And did you ever think that maybe they would get a fucking…oh, how did you cleverly put it?… McEducation if they could afford to go to college while working and taking care of a family.
People like to just shrug off the “emotional” appeals just because they somehow think it makes things more logical. All they’re doing is blocking out the rest of the logic in the argument because as soon as they hear one “sad” thing, they shut off their minds. It’s infuriating how closed minded people can be. They forget that with this lack of pay it’s affecting them. It’s affecting the economy. They’re a part of this, yet they somehow like to think they are on a higher tier.
Newsflash: The middle class doesn’t exist in America. It’s an illusion. Get off of your fucking high horse. Until you realize that a few people control this nation with their billions, we are all going to suffer.
Since I ended this post so happily, I will post one more thing that always comes into my head whenever people say, “If you don’t like it, quit and get a new job!”
