The American Dream
and used them for shoes
What a fucked up world.
<<"The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can't they provide enough for their employees?" she wondered.>>
Absolutely true. Billions of people are exploited and suffer for the good of few rich MOFOs.
presuming dollars are the currency we are using as a measure.
plus, jordan is someone who tends to just be really sceptical about things/other people's arguments and doesn't really say much in the way of his own views which as far as i know are fine. no need to get nasty :(
let's all just remember what's important
but i meant taking a step back and being compassionate to each other at all times.
couldn't remember though.
but i dunno why you wouldnt include shares/dividends.
tbf, that's a pretty dreadful thing to do
No one here or in the quoted article suggested a single CEO earns that much.
My smug technicalities aren't needed.
but 1. given that there are, what, hundreds of millions of CEOs in the world, it would be a bit of an absurd result to interpret it that way. if we're talking american dollars, it would mean an average salary of <$1 per CEO. 2. the inclusion of two different numbers/scales: 'millions' and 'billions', also suggests that the person saying this meant that some CEOs earn millions and some earn billions (unless 'millions and billions' is hyperbole as in 'hundreds and thousands'). certainly it's 'suggested' that a single CEO earns that much, whether the person saying it had any awareness of that suggestion or not. whats everyone having for tea i has lasagne.
i might go veggie idk
Are you saying more than 1 in 20 people worldwide is a CEO?
i imagine companies in china don't have a 'managing director'
because it was pulled pork and you're not supposed to like pulled pork any more.
it's fine, we should all be impressed it can put together posts that make any kind of grammatical sense
A talking & tripping gun...
You shoot yourself, pal.
Hard to see what she got 'rested for otherw'se
she also wasn't arrested.
for staff and it assumed they worked two jobs at like 40hrs a week each?
great bunch of lads
when she was complaining she couldn't afford shoes.
while you're making MILLIONS
This is all a bit Tuesday morning.
As soon as finish this mac griddle... Im done with Micki d's
That's right sister, smash the system.
why did she stay at mcdonalds for ten years with no raise? it's literally bottom of the employment barrel, the next step on the ladder couldn't be easier. apply to walmart, target, anything.
Care to speculate wildly?
she's probably lying to support her cause, as she did about being arrested.
while i don't doubt mcdonalds offers pitiful raises and opportunities, i'm sure they do exist. and if they don't, just work for some other chain retail place.
i believe that comment.
It's even got guntrip ":D"ing a Simpsons jpg for fuck sake. We need somebody to go fucking mental or for Jordan to grow a sense of remorse or something.
you'll have to stake the high horse out until tomorrow.
He could get a decent ruck going when he was trying.
Veering wildly from left to right wing depending on which side of bed they got out of that morning
he just told me to kill myself
what isn't exciting about that?
RELENTLESS LOGIC FOR ALL
I told you how are your comments like. A metaphor.
Do you need a drawing?
if you're offering them
