The idea behind nui's post is that whatever discussion about the more long term aspects of solving poverty should take place after $15/hour wage is established and that $15/hour min wage should be established immediately because the situation is dire enough and honestly has been for many Americans even before the nightmare of a pandemic happened.You guys need to actually read and think about posts that are longer than tweets. It’s really not that difficult.
In what universe is trying to advocate for a more permanent solution to poverty and minimum wage hating poor people? That is idiotic plain and simple. If you read my original post, you would even see that I was making the case that the minimum wage for certain states should be higher than 15 and hour.
I think it’s telling that Nui is a discord leader. They fit the discord mod stereotype to aT.
I would agree that in an ideal world we'd have a 50 step plan to solving poverty and the political willpower to make them happen in a timely fashion, but we live in a not ideal world where we have neither. Wages have not been raised federally since 2009 and it's definitely in part because of politicians bringing up the same issues that you are (this isn't a permanent solution, we need a better plan etc ec). You might be saying them in good faith, but bad actors have used the same arguments to stall something that has been vitally needed for over a decade, which is why your position has been (perhaps abruptly) conflated with hating poor people.
