The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
I love being Black. There's just this pride that comes with it, one that I can't quite describe. I love seeing my people achieve greatness, excellence, and succeed. We wear our color like armor, capable of warding off any and all negativity, malice, or bad vibes. We are resilient, we persevere, we adapt and overcome. We have been kidnapped, bought, sold, stripped of everything we owned; yet we're still here, we're still standing strong. We're not going anywhere, so get used to us.
