Don’t mess with the pie hoes.
In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.

you know those random ideas you get when you are trying to sleep?
this was one of them.
Your privilege is comprised of the questions you’ve never had to ask.
au: dan is from the upper east side and blair is from brooklyn
Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with you, honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
In the morning, when I rise
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be all right
