OK, we’re just about done. If being paid less than $15 an hour (not $14, not $16 — FIFTEEN U.S. DOLLARS) is “violence,” then there’s no reason to even use words anymore, because they mean nothing.

Geez, when the hell did this kid find the time for a photo shoot if he’s supposed to run the cash register AND bake donuts?

He does not "deserve" anything. The world OWES you NOTHING. He needs to get off his ass and earn it.

Low wages are not violence.
Make yourselves valuable. It's theft to expect payment for service not worth the price.

Damn I need to add up every task I do at work. I should be worth at least 10 jobs.

But if low wages are violence, then a bloody uprising is totally justified. Thanks! I was getting bored just punching people for hate speech, which is also violence you know

Everything is violence to you idiots.

Why are you minimizing the impact of real violence?

That was our question, exactly.
Violence! Man, I remember when you actually had to hit someone.

Can you guys DM me a list of what's NOT violence? Would be a whole lot more manageable then what supposedly is.

Bad Tweets are violence.

Cancelling my favorite show is violence.
Putting mayo on something when I say no mayo is violence.
A hole in my sock is violence.

Making personal choices that makes you unable to earn more than minimum wage, blaming others and demanding they pay you more just because is violence.

New strategy: Take things you don't like, call them violence, justify violence as retaliatory measure.

Quitting and getting a better job would be the 'non violent' solution…

If he thinks he’s worth more, he should be asking his employer for a raise, not our politicians. If his employers disagree, he can quit. Period.

Low wages are nature's way of telling you that you're not pulling your weight. None of us asked to be born in a pitiless universe, but here we are. You're going to demand that someone else carry your ass?

Unemployment is 4%, plenty of opportunity for higher paying jobs in this economy. Not every job will or should provide a living

And to think I put myself through college on $9 an hour with minimal student loans. At 27 yrs old. Buck up boys and girls. You can do it too. Don’t accept a minimum wage. Grow your education and skills.
— Steven P Hammond (@SPHFLA) July 20, 2018
Miguel, your starting premise is incorrect. You "deserve" nothing. If you go through life with this attitude you are going to be perennially disappointed. Your wage is based on how hard it is to replace what you bring to your job. Unfortunately, almost anyone can do your job.
— PirateSpitter (@PirateSpitter) July 20, 2018
In order to earn $15 an hour, you're going to have to increase the skills you can offer an employer. My recommendation: instead of hitching your wagon to political organizations to be exploited for propaganda purposes, work hard, go to college at night, and reap the rewards.
— PirateSpitter (@PirateSpitter) July 20, 2018
Nah, just pose for a poster with your employer’s name on it accusing them of “violence” for making you work. That’ll do wonders.
