1. Rent/mortgage subsidization will make homelessness a rare problem. I expect these subsidization should cover an effencicy apparent just about anywhere. (Obviously some property values are higher, but it should at least cover apartments of this size in at least part of most cities in each state) In places where homelessness is still a problem, the government should build efficiency apartments for rent.
2. Life can't easily leave you with nothing. Certainly you can still encounter financial hardship, but you'll always have something.
3. The fact that you don't strictly speaking need an income to survive will allow workers far more power in negotiating wages and working conditions. Which will promote healthier work environments.

Even Wealthy McHidesHisMoneyOffShores should get food stamps that could feed him, and a certain amount of money that can go towards paying his mortgage or house insurance. And some amount of money that can be spent on whatever needs arise.
And taxes should just be high enough across the board, a percentage income tax no matter how much money you make. Obviously government aid is not taxed.
So your tax dollars don't go to programs you don't benefit from, even if you do lose money. And making more money will never result in less aid, nor will not working actually result in more aid. Children should not increase the amount given for more than two children, however services should be available to help children. (For example, school lunch should just always be provided by the government. )
I know this isn't perfect, but it's better than the system we have now for a couple reasons.

While some people definitely abuse the system, it isn't the majority on a country wide level.
Also, as guest eluded to, part of the problem is that the system actually encourages people to never get off the system. A lot of this is actually that government assistance does not go away is small enough increments. If making only $325 a month qualifies you for enough aid to get by, but $350 a month means you get $100 less a month in various forms of government aid, you aren't going to ever work towards bringing in more money. Even though if you lost aid slowly you could probably work yourself up to the point you didn't need it.
Also- unpopular opinion here: everyone should actually receive government aid. Every citizen of the United States should get a certain amount in food stamps and a certain amount in housing assistance and a certain amount for various other things like toiletries and transportation. And those amounts should be livable on. Not luxuriously, but livable.

No, it probably isn't a safe assumption. Some people who feel this way also feel that if you aren't ready for children you shouldn't be having sex.

It's all good. It gave me a good reason to explain for anyone who may not know what median means. :)

As harsh as that is, I do agree. However I also believe that people who can't work because they are too slow to be hired should also be taken care of. I'm not saying lazy, I am saying some people, especially those with disabilities, don't move quickly enough to be hired. Those people don't deserve to be on the street just because they can't work.

@bethorien I think @unclethan means what if you wat to agree to work for less in order to get the job. The problem is we already don't have a system where that works well. Even with a minimum wage employers often pay the lowest amount they can get away with, and people accept this even if they should make more given what they do and the skills they have. This is especially true when someone is otherwise disadvantaged. If you did away with minimum wage, a number of companies would pay less as a matter of possibility. And when the lowest pay drops, so does the pay nessicary to attract better qualified employees.

Also, sixteen year olds leave abusive situations all the time. We don't need to make it artificially harder for them to feed themselves.

No. Not only does this incentivize companies to let people go once they are "too old" and hire only minors if they can-it promotes the idea that your time and labor are fundamentally less valuable as a minor. Teens already struggle against adults making them feel they they don't matter because they are children. We don't need to make that problem any worse.
Also, it would discourage teens from working at all. You have to remember teenagers don't work full time either. And their part time jobs still need to pay for gas and car payments. And teaching kids to save money isn't possible if they don't have any excess.

$5/hr is not a livable wage. Assuming you work full time you'd only make $200 a week. $10,400 a year, assuming you never took any unpaid time off. That's only an average of $866.67 a month. (And that's all before taxes)
Most cheap rent is usually in the neighborhood of $400 a month. And that's really cheap rent. It doesn't include utilities and you still need to pay for food. And transportation (at minimum to work). And that's not even considering things like health insurance, which you are legally required to purchase. It doesn't think about replacing shoes or clothes or hairbrushes. You still need toilet paper and shampoo/body wash.
And again, that's before taxes. The only reason I can think someone would want to work for less than minimum wage is to continue to qualify for government assistance.

So, I work with people who have disabilities as my job. And most of then don't have jobs. Those who do often need to receive specialized training. However, there are organizations which exist to provide that training. And a lot of them are able to do the jobs they have a normal rate once they are finished training. Because the jobs are chosen with their disabilities in mind.
I know this isn't always the case, but I think its important to point out that in some places disabled workers do exactly the same job exactly as well.
Also, one of our local warehouses depends on that labor. They have a contract with the training organization and they agreed to pay more a handful of years ago when the organization almost pulled out of the deal with them (contacts were up and it just wasn't profitable enough to continue). The warehouse literally asked "how much would it take for you to stay?" And then paid the amount they were told.

Unfortunately this leads to more people having worse wages. That's why we have a minimum wage.

Median income 9 comments
thekaylapup · 6 weeks ago
Nope. Median =/= the number exactly in the middle of the highest and lowest. Median is if you list every outcome in order from highest to lowest, what number is in the middle.
For example; 0,1, 1, 1, 3, 4, 5, 5, 9, 12, 14
The median of this set of numbers is 4.
4=/=7
Which means it could be using median correctly. Because their are so many people making lower incomes, but very few people who are extremely wealthy.
That being said @bethorien pointed out, its unlikely that the graph is a fair representation of the truth.

This is actually one of my least favorite memes. Usually it's used to demonize people who are just living their lives in a way that's counter culture. I've seen it be used well, I just feel like it often is used for uncalled for hate.

Eh, you get it. In the first game you can avoid the first boss for a bit, and it's not that hard to fight him as long as you manage to land your drop attack. You are already hallowed when you start, so it doesn't really matter how many times you die, you aren't losing much.
The third one is a bit trickier to start, but still totally doable. It really doesn't matter if you die, because all you lose is souls, and until you beat the boss your souls are pretty pithy. Use the tutorial enemies to get a feel for the controls. Fight the boss. You'll get him eventually. If you are a pyromancer save your fire ball until you've weakened him some, they are more valuable in the second half. Your axe is valid. This boss is completely dodgable if you time it right also. It's not how I chose to start off, but I've seen people wear heavy armor and let him hit them at a certain point in his attack in order to get a good hit on him. In any case its completely doable.

I don't know, I think it's fine to have your siblings babysit for you sometimes. It's not like their niece was living with them.

Yeah, we have pickles in the Midwest, and people definitely eat them by themselves. But eating a pickle at a movie is just weird. And drinking pickle juice sounds awful.

Not necessarily. There are many options for treating ADHD and many people aren't familiar with the various options to treat their disorders.

I don't think you'd likely be less depressed for your life going badly. That being said I do completely understand how frustrating it can be to want to fix something but you are the only thing wrong.
The problem is, if things are also going badly in your life, you often find you lack the motivation to fix them. Because depression.
I hope you're able to cope well and be happy. :)

There is a very real possibility that you live in a place with better opportunities. You may have picked up more useful job skills along the way. The truth is the worst thing I ever did for my ability to get a job was stop working for a while. I needed it for my mental health, but finding a job with gaps in your work history is hard.
Also, and this is important: Racism and Sexism definitely still exist in the work place. If you are an urban white male with no criminal record there is a good chance you can find a job, but the same does not apply if you are a black woman in a little town in the sticks. Not if that town is primarily white people.
And not of that accounts for the many many disorders that make getting a job harder.
