But what will motivate people if they’re making $15 an hour at a minimum wage job?

Hmm, we seem to have people making WAY over $15 an hour and they don’t seem to be shiftless, lazy, and unmotivated. Ellen and Oprah make way more than that and they don’t seem to be unmotivated.

I can think of a few things that would motivate people:

1. Raises. People always want raises. Unless they want….
2. (More, Paid) Vacation Days
3. Moving up in the company
4. Paying for school (for themselves or someone else)
5. Better housing
6. A Car, or a better one
7. Hobbies!
8. Impressing friends and or potential dates
9. Making parents proud
10. Travel
11. Starting a family(or adding more to it)
12. Saving for retirement
13. Paying off debt
14. Entertainment
15. Wedding and or Honeymoon
16. Moving out of parents house/getting a place without roommates

Can you think of other things that motivate people at work?

Oh yes, Ronnie. I read someone explain the "Crab Bucket Mentality". Crabs in a bucket will try to climb out. When one gets to a certain amount of progress, the others will yank her back down. If they worked together they could all get out, but they don't think like that, so they're all stuck.
Which is the same story when we talk about raising minimum wage. People making more than minimum wage, but less(or slightly more) than 15 say things like "what about me?" Or "I deserve to make more than those people" not realizing, as you said, a rising tide lifts all ships.

Sexism Illustrated

Imagine that you’re at a party, you’re a guy and everyone else there is a woman. You sit down, and waitresses bring out these individually made up plates chock full of delicious food and sit one in front of each of the women and they bring out an empty plate and give it to you.

YOU: Hey, I don’t have any food here.

WAITRESS: Well, everyone got a plate. (she walks off)

YOU: Hey, I didn’t get any food.

(nobody responds)

YOU: HEY, I don’t have any food.

(a few women look up, one shrugs at you)

YOU: GUYS I’M HUNGRY!!!

WOMAN 2: EVERYONE is hungry. Quit yelling, why do you have to be so emotional?

YOU: I don’t have any food. Is this a woman dinner?

WOMAN 3: That’s sexist. I’m offended.

WOMAN 4: Yeah, this isn’t about gender, they just forgot to give you food. Don’t make everything about gender, this is about unfairness.

WOMAN 5: Waitress, bring out more food.

(Waitresses brings out more plates of food, sits them down in front of the women and puts another empty plate on top of your empty plate)

YOU: Hey, I still don’t have any food.

WAITRESS: You have TWO plates! What else do you want??

YOU: FOOD!

WAITRESS: Just like a man, always hungry!

YOU: I don’t have any food, I’d like to eat. Can I please have some food? Please?

WOMAN 6: It’s not just about you, you know a man was rude to me the other day.

WOMAN 2: Yeah, men are rude sometimes.

YOU: I get that, but I have a problem-

WOMAN 1: Everyone has problems.

YOU: Yes, but I just want to eat. WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND THAT I DIDN'T GET ANY FOOD??

WOMAN 3: I understand what you're saying, but your tone is just really aggressive. You should try being nicer about it. You get more flies with honey. (The women have finished eating, waitresses take away the plates)

YOU: Wait, I didn't get any food!

WAITRESS: Sir, dinner is over. You should have said something earlier.

YOU: But I did. I did say something.

WAITRESS: Are you sure? Because I didn't hear anything.

Are you on Jenny Craig? Do you look like you should be on Jenny Craig? 'cause that would totally explain it.

On this silliness about letting trans people use the bathroom...


PRIOR TO EQUALITY LAW
Pervert Bob could go into the ladies room:

- Dress as a woman and claim to just be a manly woman (they exist)
- Not bother with a costume or excuse and just invade the ladies room


After EQUALITY LAW
Pervert Bob could go into the ladies room:

- Dress as a woman and claim to just be a manly woman (they exist)
- Dress as a woman and claim to be transgender
- Not bother with a costume or excuse and just invade the ladies room


After law forcing everyone to use the bathroom of their birth gender:
Pervert Bob could go into the ladies room:

- Dress as a woman and claim to just be a manly woman (they exist)
- Not bother with a costume and just claim to be born a woman
- Not bother with a costume or excuse and just invade the ladies room


As you can see, this isn't about stopping Pervert Bob as none of these scenarios stop Pervert Bob. Perhaps we should focus on pervert bob instead of trying to stop him by helping or persecuting trans people?

This is an issue to rile up the Republican "base"; transgender people were just a convenient target.

Could not agree more.
If alternative medicine actually worked it would just be called medicine.

I know I'm a dork, but I have this on my calendar.
On this day, in 2004, Massachusetts was the very first state in the US to give full, legal recognition to same sex marriages.
Who would have thought that less than 12 years later the rest of the country would follow. Kicking and screaming and thrashing, but following nonetheless.

And you'll note that the country hasn't burned to the ground, we haven't legalized child rape, and Christianity is very much still legal.

I've seen as few quotes from celebrities talking about looking forward to the day where we don't talk about gay or straight and we're just people and I disagree completely.
The problem is not that we are different.
The problem is not that we have labels for how we are different.
The problem is definitely not that we talk about being different.

So we do not solve the problem by ignoring, dismissing, avoiding or being silent about our differences.

The problem is how we treat each other because we are different.

Pretending we aren't different doesn't fix this. Pretending to ignore these differences doesn't lead to justice either. Erasure is part of the problem, it is NOT the solution!

Accepting, embracing, and celebrating those differences is how we move forward.

It's been several months and the dog is still insanely cute.
He spends his days in a darth vader pup bed behind my husband's chair, looking at the window and snoozing or chewing on his toys.
And he loves to cuddle on the couch with us.

It's ridiculous how much we freakin' love this dog.

I don't get excited over babies. I don't hate kids, I'm just not super interested in them. My cousins have kids and they're alright, good kids. My brother's kids, I haven't met them, I'm not even sure how many there are, but I do think about them. I do hope they're okay.

My pup Crixus though? I can't even. He's too damn cute and loves us so much I feel like my heart might explode. I'm so glad we adopted him. Our life was just dandy before him. But now it's even better. Our apartment feels like a home.

Maybe that's screwed up, but I don't much care. 😀🐕

I'm glad your pup brings you so much joy! He's a cute one.

I'm the opposite. I love the babies and the kiddos, and I'm really glad other people love their pets. I care about animals, but the desire to be directly responsible for a non-human's well-being is not there.

It's not screwed up to love a living being you've voluntarily brought into your life more than those to whom you aren't as closely connected.

Introduction
I DO actually use the chat features of gmail/google+.  So if you circle me, and I circle you back, feel free to IM me. I don't bite. 

I have a less common take on social networking.  I'm not interested in becoming famous for my Google+ posts, nor do I care to spread my "influence" far and wide.

Reasons I won't be circling you back:

-You're using an obviously fictitious name. While Google+ no longer requires real names, I prefer them. I find there's less trolling and drama when people don't get to hide behind a fake name. 

-You're posting NSFW content publicly. I am often in places where others can see my screen, including work, and I don't want to have explain genitals to coworkers, bosses, or angry parents. Part of my job involves social media.  

-You have no posts visible to me or no posts and no pictures. How am I to get a sense of who you are and what you're about if you don't have any posts? 

-You've got hundreds or thousands of people circled.  I value quality over quantity. I sincerely doubt you have the time to keep up with posts from hundreds/thousands of people, which means it's also unlikely that you will have the time to get to know me in any significant way. There's nothing wrong with circling hundreds of people, that's just not how I network.


-You haven't posted anything I can see in several weeks/months.

Great place to work out. Staff is always cleaning. Gets brand new equipment on a regular basis. Pricey, but worth it.
