literally everyone in America hates the American education system and has thousands of ideas for how to make it better but nothing ever fucking changes
And that’s because of the emphasis on the standardized tests. Nothing new or revolutionary can be taught in the main core classes - and funding for other non-core classes is lessened or totally thrown out. Unless you’re into sports, that is -_- - future teacher
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.
