    There are a billion and one things I could do with a single bag of rice.

    None of them are legal.

    This has been part of a long term change in how people are raised. Public schools aren't allowed to hurt someone's feeling or score a sport because it might offend someone.

    It's not training for the real world which is based on competition. The world they've trained for doesn't exist. The problem with their theory of "every get along" is that if a few don't, the whole thing crashes.

    There are two type of people, those that can compete and those that can't. We've trained people to think competition is offensive and unfair.

    They have no chance.

    This is the mindset. Some feel lucky to have a job, other think their time is so great they just have to show up and they make things better.

    Imagine the social justice warriors looking for jobs while sharp hiring managers are on the lookout for which candidate is most likely to be a pain in the ass or likely to start a legal ruckus and Bam, it's a no-go. Social cuts both ways.

    But the person highlights the issue that is wrong with America nowadays. 50 years ago you could live on a minimum wage but now commodities make it impossible to live. It'll get worse as the cost of automation continues to fall and AI takes over a lot of the volume of service type jobs. That means lots of unemployment and lots more debt. If you consider the problem in China then you have a serious social problem which could cause anarchy.

    Minimum wage wasn't designed to provide a 25-year-old with her own car, her own apartment, and a diet of prosciutto, Brie, and chocolate while living in downtown San Francisco.

    Well, minimum wage was designed to be a livable income, if not a particularly luxurious one.

    Unfortunately for this young lady, she expected the CEO of Yelp to react like her university professors and come running with a warm blankie and lots of snuggles. I mean, why else would she be stupid enough to publicly call out her employer with that incredibly pathetic self-pitying post reeking of entitlement? This is how prepared young people are for the real world when they grow-up in a world where everyone wins a trophy and they're protected from anything that might cause them the slightest bit of discomfort.

    Okay, I'll say it: it kinda does. The pity angle is rarely ever a good negotiation tactic.

    Regardless of how the individual posted, they shine light on a shameful situation. A living wage isn't too much to expect. It's a necessity.
