You have to give it to them here. The balls. The balls are large. A Walmart in Canton, Ohio is holding a Thanksgiving food drive among its employees...to benefit its employees. Because some of them can't afford food for some mysterious reason. To phrase that another way, low-wage workers are being asked to donate food to other low-wage workers to offset the fact that they aren't paid a living wage, and the entity doing the asking is the company that can't even keep them in canned-f*cking-green-bean-money in the first place.
There's no way I could have possibly said that as well as Lindy West from Jezebel. She's a g*d*amn poet, that one.
Anyhoo, Wal-Mart makes BILLIONS -- that's billions with a "b" -- in revenue every year. But sure, go ahead and ask the people who work for a pittance to spare what little they can to help the other employees who also make a pittance. Sounds like a solid plan.
What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
