For everyone complaining about “double standards”.
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a sick society.

THIS IS WHAT I’M SAYING ALL THE TIME WHEN I TELL PEOPLE BEING DEPRESSED IS THE MOST HEALTHY THING TO BE IN THIS TOXIC SOCIETY
“BEING DEPRESSED IS THE MOST HEALTHY THING TO BE IN THIS TOXIC SOCIETY” I think that is one of the best things I’ve ever read.
