“Low-Wage Work Is No Longer a Guarantee Against Hunger”
Nicole Dieker

It baffles me that there are a significant number of people that disagree with the assertion that even if you are holding up your end of the “social contract” by being an employed, law-abiding, and productive member of society, that should entitle you to the basics of food, shelter, and healthcare for yourself and one other person.

We can have discussions as to what is owed to the unemployed, those with too many kids, etc., but I cannot imagine why the basics for the productive are even up for discussion.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
