So you bought a Nespresso machine a few months back; does that mean we can infer you make $25 an hour then? Since, you know, you basically said if you make under $25 you shouldn't get one. And definitely not get one if you make $12.50 an hour.
Funny how a large percentage of dA users either: a) are under the age legal to work, b) simply cant find work due to the unemployment rate, c) rely on the money the get for their art(ever heard of starving artist?) and d) simply make minimum wage.
I cant speak for other countries, but lets talk about the minimum wages in America.
Each state usually varies. But, the federal min. wage is $7.25 an hour.
There are 19 states that minimum wage is set at or below $7.25.
In Georgia, those not covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act get paid $5.15 an hour.
Wyoming is also $5.15 an hour.
In Montana, if a business doesn't make a gross income more than $110,000, minimum wage is set at $4.00 an hour.
In Oklahoma, if a business doesn't make a gross income more than $100,000, minimum wage is set at $2.00 an hour.Two. Dollars. 200 pennies.
Granted, I realize the percentage of people who make this amount is low.
It doesn't change the fact that the highest minimum wage in the US is $10.50 in Washington DC.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to make $12.50 an hour. Very few are fortunate enough to make $25. Not everyone is fortunate enough to make minimum wage. Not everyone is fortunate enough to make enough to even live.
Yes, I understand the coffee and prices are figurative. A metaphor. But it doesn't change the implications.
Not everyone is able to even afford a french press or a coffee drip, much less a nespresso.
So why would they spend money on a site where the CEO implies he makes $25 dollars an hour; in which he would make the same amount in a week than some people make in a month. A site in which apparently needs more money.
Let's all slow clap for spyed
