Re: “Oakland Can't Afford to Wait

I just feel like all this is just talk. What needs to happens is the minimum wage rate needs to increase at the same rate as the cost of living per city/county. People can't afford to live off minimum wage and the contrast of jobs that pay higher wages don't present equal opportunity for the masses in those community. When survival is a competition, no matter how you adjust the situation, there are always people being left out. Affordable living can only exist if job/wage opportunities grow with it. Our government doesn't regulate corporations in regards to product cost inflations. It should be be a law that forces companies to pay a fair amount to their employees based off the cost of living. All in all, I don't trust what any of these damn politicians say until I see results that make it easier to afford to live in the city I was born. When you ask people to pay for college then after college apply for jobs which you have to compete for while working a part time low wage gig, when your staying with your parents/ or roommate, plus having to feed yourself, put clothes on your back, clean yourself, commute, pay student loans, and the fuck can you survive under these circumstances. And those who haven't went to college should be relegated to living in poverty just because they didn't pay for a college education. America is a fucked is a fucked up, morally and systematically split country that no one of any power has the balls to change it's way of governing.
