I have an economic justification: capitalism. If the minimum wage goes up, so does the cost of living, which will not eliminate poverty in the slightest.
The cost of living has gone up without increases to minimum wages. Raising the minimum and increasing the economic presents of the poor would be a boon to capitalist.
If this happened, both the small business where I work and my parents business would either close down, or they’d have to fire all of their staff. But hey, if there really is no justification, morally or economically, then I suppose they and other small businesses should be sacrificed right?
When someone works for less pay than she can live on — when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently — then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The ‘working poor,’ as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else.
No one has the right to profit from the suffering of others

Anonymous asked: Yo, can I drop a shout-out to my mixed-raced homies who get the whole "too black to be white too white to be black" shit on the daily? Shit gets tiring.
I’m sorry, that shit seems exhausting and fucked up.
My HONY book arrived in Pakistan today. Though it was five months late, it was my favorite birthday present of the year.
In a country where people fight for survival everyday, I’m one of the fortunate few whose biggest worry right now is getting through medical school. In my part of the world, people like me, no matter how much we try to deny it, live in a bubble. And our problems are called “first world problems.” Maybe it will surprise people to see a “Pakistani” so in touch with the Western World. To see something other than the hatred that the world seems to notice radiating from here. But in my little bubble here in Pakistan, I find inspiration in the stories shared on Humans of New York, because they depict more than what the common man perceives. Yes, Pakistan as a nation suffers more than the rest, we do have a billion and one problems, but HONY reminds me that above everything else we are individuals. That just how every Pakistani is not the same, neither is every American. It reminds me to love and respect everybody— something many people here tend to have forgotten. The pictures and stories on HONY almost always make me feel like anything is possible.
lol is this really a thing
