I really wanted to get these finished and online tonight. The original colors were really vibrant, but after a bit of pleading with photoshop, I tamed them as best I could.
Imagine Eridan NOT sexually harassing you because there’s been no evidence that he does that, just that he’s annoying and kind of clingy, but furthermore imagine no one trying to redeem him because we’re just imagining silly situations about a fictional character.
canon vs fanon people.

Maybe not as cool as magic, but also not as fake!
God, this is such a self indulgent mess. I actually just wanted to try out some stuff but then it got out of hand. Sorry for the wonkiness.
Also, when I messed around with filters and stuff, one version came out looking like this, and I think it looks kind of cool.
Fast food workers “occupying” Wall Street. #imlovinit
If you can’t fucking survive on fucking $7.25 go to fucking school and get another fucking job. Those people who run the fucking restaurants and shops who fucking give out minimum fucking wage need to make a fucking profit too. Get off your lazy fucking ass and make way for the fucking high school students and college students who fucking need that job that pays $7.25.
Funny thing: the workers who are stuck in minimum wage jobs (many of whom have degrees… and huge amounts of debt racked up getting them, because of the myth that going to school is THE path to a high-paying job) are also the biggest single customer base for these sorts of corporations, and most other ones.
You know the thing that’s really going to imperil corporate profits?
The way they pay their workers.
The news keeps saying things about “consumer confidence” being low. Supposedly, it’s low “confidence” that is depressing sales of big ticket items like homes and cars, and if the current trends continue, it’s taking bites out of things like… eating out. Going to the movies. And other things that drive the minimum wage sectors of the economy.
Funny thing: people have to have money to spend money. Right now, most revenue goes straight into the accounts of the major stakeholders in the company. What does it there? It… accrues. It… adds up. What doesn’t it do? It doesn’t circulate. It doesn’t get spent. It doesn’t do anyone any good.
If you gave everyone working at McDonald’s another dollar an hour out of the profits that are currently just being pocketed, those dollars… well, they’d be spent. Almost immediately. And in the end, they’d probably end up being stuck in some millionaire’s low risk, steady return, not-at-all entrepreneurial portfolio, which is where most money ends up.
But just by the magic passing through more hands before it comes to rest, those same dollars would each be spent several more times. MAGIC, right? Same dollar, getting spent again and again and again. And every time, someone benefits. In effect, every time, everyone benefits.
When money goes to the top, it stops moving. Money that isn’t moving isn’t really money any more. It’s as useless as the high score of a video game.
This is why the places in the world—even just in this country—with the best minimum wage and the best social safety nets also have the lowest unemployment, and why unemployment grows or stays stable the more we “tighten belts”. This is just how the world works. This is how the world has always worked. If conservatives would give up their fairy tale fantasyland logic and join the rest of us in the real world, we could have the economy on its feet in no time.
And you are living in a fantasy land. You are. What jobs? What jobs are these people supposed to get? If they had no job, you would tell them “McDonald’s is always hiring.” and act like that’s an answer. Well, they’re working at McDonald’s. And they had to beat ten applicants to get those jobs, because only in your magical fantasy land does “always hiring” mean “has enough job openings to magically accommodate everybody who applies”. Your logic literally requires magic to work.
What are you doing with your life? What are you doing that is so noble and great an endeavor that you can tell people who bust their backs to do a job you probably couldn’t do and definitely wouldn’t want to that they’re lazy for working for $7.25. Would you take $7.25 an hour to do what they do? No? Then they’re being underpaid. The invisible hand of the free market is apparently taking a vacation.
Let me tell you how things work in the real world. In the real world *everyone has to* make a living wage. Has to. If businesses aren’t paying living wages, then they should inevitably go under since no one could afford to work for them. Fortunately or unfortunately, the economy… like an ecology… is all interconnected. So instead of these businesses suffering alone for what should be a fatal decision on their part, they drag everyone else down with them in a slow death spiral that poisons the whole economy.
See, if these business owners aren’t paying their employees a living wage but they’re not going out of business, then their incompetence or greed (pick one, or both) is being subsidized by everyone else. Their incompetence or greed is being paid for by everyone who pays ABOVE a minimum wage so that their employees can afford to eat out and shop and see movies, and by everybody who pays the taxes that go to the public assistance programs that allow their employees to keep scraping by.
Of course, the employees themselves are bearing the brunt of the death spiral, because they’re trapped between an immovable object—a job that against all real-world logic expects full time employees to accept wages that won’t get them through the week—and an inexorable force—the fact that human beings have basic needs that require more money than they’re getting to meet.
Since we actually do live in the real world, it’s inevitable that a system that is unsustainable will fall apart, and this one will… it will reach a breaking point where we’ll either have to acknowledge the problem and fix it, or… well, it will just break. It would be better to fix it sooner rather than later, especially since there are actual people being literally worked to death while smug jerks like you who don’t understand how the world works and who wouldn’t be able to do what they do lecture them about how their plight is somehow their fault.
I was going to reply to the comment up above but I think you covered it.
At my job, the average PROFIT of one day is currently around two thousand dollars. That is more than they pay me a month. In fact, let’s do some math.
I am only a moderately skilled barista, but even I can make approximately 3 drinks in a minute if I time them right (cue the shots before I pump the flavor, put milk on for the next drink before pouring for the current one, etc.). Now, let’s say the average drink at Starbucks costs $4 (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NO FUCKING WAY IT IS USUALLY MOTE THAN THAT BUT I AM PURPOSELY UNDERESTIMATING TO MAKE A POINT). So that is $12 a minute, and I make $8.50 an hour.
But wait, I here your entitled, spoiled mouth utter, there are costs to running a bussiness, damn it, you can’t just say they earn 12 bucks a minute.
Okay. So let’s talk costs. What does it cost to make a drink. Well, there are 128 ounces in a gallon of milk. Since Starbucks buys products in bulk, let’s estimate they pay $2.50 for a gallon. That gallon can make approximately 10 Grande beverages (because even though a Grande is 16 ounces, steamed milk foams and takes up more space, and a shot of espresso is about 2 ounces, and a Grande has 2 shots, which is four ounces, and that is not even accounting for flavoring.) So each drink takes $.25 of milk. Let’s estimate that it costs 10 cents for a shot, 15 cents for the cup and lid, and 10 cents for flavor, which is actually probably a high estimate for all those, because once again, restaurants buy things in mass bulk, so they get discounts. So it costs approximately $0.60 to make a Grande drink. So instead of making $12 a minute, they make $10.20 (Still more than I make an hour.)
So the store makes more a minute than I do an hour. Where does this wealth go? Well, part of it goes to the manager, a chunk to the store owner, and a slice back to Starbucks itself. Why should these people profit off of not only my hard work, but the cumulative hard work of all their employees? Why do the people at the front lines, who have to put up with the most shit, stand on their feet the longest, work the hardest, get paid the least? The CEOs do not DESERVE this money. At least not all of it.
