I’m using the laptop looking at stuff and, as usual, Tiger is rubbing against me. Of course, she has to sit on my lap while I’m on the laptop.
Then out of nowhere, she bites my arm. With her whole mouth wrapped around my forearm (thankfully I’m wearing long sleeves today). So I pull my arm away and she bites me again and starts growling.
She’s like 10 years old and she’s never bitten me like that before (she did bite the nurse like that before her surgery but I can understand that….)
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.
