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.

After seeing The Lego Movie, my girls were, needless to say, digging on Unikitty, so I made these for my them to transfer on to T’s and bags and what not. I wanted them to look less perfect…more sketchy and rough, so I did a quick sketch of them before vectoring them, and colored them loosely.
cool new drinking game: every time you see someone being unnecessarily vitriolic about some weird perceived intellectual superiority complex they’ve assigned to people who drink tea, make a cup of tea. sit or stand somewhere comfortable, maybe somewhere you can see the sky. imagine the heat spreading physically through you is also radiating from you in waves of kindness and emotional light. feel the temperature seeping into your hands and imagine all of the good you can do with them; imagine it as a reminder all of the things you’ve created and an expression of excited potential for all of the creations yet to come. think of tea leaves and meditate on whether the most effective way to help someone reach their true potential is with coldness or with warmth. acknowledge the bitterness on your tongue and work on trying to let less of it fall from your lips. and if you don’t like tea, perhaps you can make another warm beverage and go somewhere the fuck else, plebeian. do whatever stupid shitty hobby you people have. have you even READ a BOOK
