Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.

This honestly makes me so emotional.

i hate it when my “friends” just dismiss something i’m really passionate about like “oh you’re talking about that again” like shut up don’t ruin this for me do you know how many times i’ve pretended to care or even genuinely tried to get interested in what you like????? the least you could do is fake it rather than making me feel like a burden

Wow Fact Wednesday !!!!!

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts complaining about raising the minimum wage.

Raising the minimum wage is highly beneficial:

-It reduces employee turnover and increases productivity and would reduce the amount of people relying on public assistance.

-25% of jobs pay wages below the poverty line for a family of four !!

-Over 60% of small businesses support it !!

-Minimum wage increases stimulate the economy !!

-Over 88% of minimum wage workers are over the age of 20

-The minimum wage in 1963 was $2, which in 2014 is >$15.

-MLK advocated the raise in ‘63 to $2 for economic equality !!!!

-The minimum wage today is not indexed, which means as inflation goes higher, your purchasing power diminishes !!!

-You know you’d want to be able to have more money to spend !! (America <3 Consumerism)

-If you make more than minimum wage, your wages are likely to increase as well!

-Sometimes economics is fun

"Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships."
