I have to admit to you guys I was feeling a little bit down recently, this past week to be exact. I was feeling bad about work, bad about my finances. I felt like no matter how hard one paddles you go nowhere, just kept going in circles, as if using one oar. Financially it seems like the nation is stagnant. We continue to produce nothing. I was feeling stifled and anchored down (in the bad sense). I didn't feel like posting too many complaints as they just made me feel awful, or worse; posting complaints made me feel like : what' the point? Then it rained. I don't know why that changed things, or if that just coincided with my changing mood. But I feel renewed. Ready to go at it. I will begin walking once it stops raining. It is so nice and cold out here. I'm sitting out here having a bite and a drink as I wait for the bus. I forget how nice the cold feels when you're dressed for it. I can just sit out here all night. I can watch the lights' reflection change on puddles all night long. My breath making a vapor trail. Enjoying myself way too much tonight. You too, enjoy yourself. Go on allow yourself that.
Each year we spend billions of dollars subsidizing profits at large international corporations because they refuse to pay their workers a living wage. It is not fair that taxpayers are footing the bill because these companies’ full-time workers are paid poverty wages and require public assistance just to be able to afford their rent and feed their families.(via beingliberal)
If these corporations won’t take action, then we will fight for their workers. Click here to tell Congress to raise the minimum wage: http://afsc.me/1nJkgBK
