The Minimum Wage Awareness Ribbon

What color is poverty? Or more precisely, what would be a suitable color for a Minimum Wage Awareness ribbon?

In the US, poverty has no specific color, it's more like the lack of a color, namely green, like our currency.

People that earn low wages can't afford to all simultaneously go on strike for a fair living wage. If they could, this country would come to a screeching halt.

So, what I am proposing is that anyone that earns less than $15 per hour, to take a stand and make yourselves publicly visible with the Minimum Wage Awareness ribbon.

Here's how:

   - Take any color ribbon and tie it around an object, such as a hairbrush handle.
   - Knot it and then tie it in a bow.
   - Now slide it off and wear the empty ribbon pinned on your shirt, blouse, or jacket, wherever you go.
   - Wear it to work, school, church, the doctor's office, grocery shopping...everywhere.

If anyone asks what the strange droopy looking ribbon is for, tell them "I make less than $15 per hour. That ribbon is tied around the cash I have left over, after I am done paying for all my expenses."

Maybe, just maybe, if we can get enough low wage workers wearing an empty droopy ribbon, it might make a difference.

It might get others to see just how many people are affected by poverty wages, that they are not just teens working part time for pocket cash, not the lazy or uneducated,. Maybe we can make everyone aware that they are our friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors...hard working people we see everywhere, every single day.

With enough awareness about how many people are affected by low wages, maybe we will have more support from the voting public to pressure the politicians in Congress to raise the minimum wage up to $15 per hour, so that low wage workers can have some cash left, that they could tie that ribbon around.

Are you with me?

Share, pass the word, wear a ribbon if you are affected, and make some ribbons for the low wage workers you know.

I will probably end up being banned from leaving reviews on their site in the future, but I was just being truthful, and the perfume really does make great cat repellant. (they say it will take up to 72 hrs till my review appears on the site)

One can find interesting things while digging for info on primitive methods for building housing structures.

"In 1984 Khalili, who had moved to California by that time, proposed to NASA that ceramic houses be built on the moon. Experiments were conducted by Khalili at McDonnell Douglas Space Systems laboratories to show how harnessing the sun could melt and fuse lunar soil into shapes and forms for building applications. A full scale model of the proposed colony was intended to be built in the desert outside of Hesperia, CA, where Khalili established his training school: the Cal-Earth Institute. The research received mixed reactions. Khalili was known as "quite a visionary" and thought of as "before his time" by, among others, the mayor of Hesperia, Jim Lindley. Only a few prototypes were built."

"The Internet portal that provides scientists in many Greek universities and research institutes with access to electronic journals from 27 publishers suspended many of its services on 1 July because the government has not provided the funds to keep it going.

Greece’s stormy economic climate has meant that the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link) has come close to shutting down multiple times over the past decade. But now faced with the threat of state bankruptcy, scientists are not expecting rescue funds to become available this time around."
