How dare you work only one job to support your family? : MurderedByWords

They expect people that work these jobs to suffer the indignity of living as subhumans as punishment for not pulling themselves up by their bootstraps and aggressively pursuing the same goals they did. Largely it is just embarrassing projection, since many of the people who feel this way had advantages their fry cooks didn’t have, and don’t even necessarily have personal track records of pulling themselves up by their bootstraps at any point in their life.

There certainly are people who suffered through menial, shit jobs and worked their way up, and now make plenty of money, but I feel like they have little overlap with the ‘fuck a living minimum wage’ crowd.
