This paramedic makes $15/hr and he’s calling out anyone in the same boat who gets rude when fast food workers fight for an increase to the same pay rate.

They want us fighting over who has the bigger pile of crumbs so we don’t realize they made off with almost the whole damn cake. Why are you angry about fast food workers making two bucks more an hour when your CEO makes four hundred TIMES what you do? It’s in the bosses’ interests to keep your anger directed downward, at the poor people who are just trying to get by, like you, rather than at the rich assholes who consume almost everything we produce and give next to nothing for it.
Just like in comedy, we’ve got to punch up, y’all.
