[image description] news caption: FAST-FOOD STRIKE a white person on the news says “Why stop at fifteen dollars? Why not raise the minimum wage to a hundred thousand dollars?” Jon Stewart says “WHY NOT?! WHY NOT PAY PEOPLE IN COCAINE AND UNICORNS??!”



the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.
