CMV: A minimum wage that is directly linked to the cost of living/living wage for an area would solve many issues that come with minimum wage increases

So, the main thing I see when the topic of a living wage comes up is that companies will just jack up the prices to compensate for the lost revenue, which then negates any increase in wages.

However, a minimum wage that is directly linked to what the living wage is for the area that the business is located would make it so if companies drive the prices up, then the cost of living goes up, then the living wage goes up and so will what the workers are paid. This way companies can't just jack up the prices, because doing so will mean that they need to pay their workers even more. Keeping prices lower will be in their best interest

Edit: Reddit is being weird and not letting me see all comments, and not letting me reply so I'll get to the replies when I can!

Edit 2: I see a lot of "what about small businesses" comments. If a business needs to exploit its workers in order to survive, then it should not survive.

Edit 3: Reddit is still being weird and won't let me see the majority of the comments so if I don't reply, I apologize!

LPT: If your spouse is cleaning a section or area of the house, and you feel inspired to pitch in, choose a different area of the house to clean, unless they specifically ask you for help.

I just came up on my 15th anniversary with my beautiful wife.

I noticed that on the weekends or in the evenings when one of us starts cleaning around the house, it will spur inspiration for the other one to clean as well.

But so many times I’ve made the mistake of seeing my wife in the kitchen cleaning and thinking to myself, I want to support her efforts, so I start cleaning around her in the kitchen.

HUGE mistake... my good intentions quickly turn into her felling like I don’t approve of the job she’s doing so I β€œhad to step in”, when really I just wanted to help.

Instead, when inspiration strikes to support my wife and her cleaning efforts, whenever I choose a different part of the house to clean, she notices it and is pleased.

It’s the same thing in reverse too... if I’m cleaning the kitchen and she comes in and starts opening and shutting cabinets right next to me, I csn get annoyed. And then I realize that I do the same thing to her.

Live and let live. You can’t change anybody. You can only change how you react to anybody.

41yo suboxone patient with lung cancer. I don't mean to keep pestering this sub, but I thought I'd drop in to say good-bye. The cancer is in my heart and central cardiovascular area. It's over.

Hello all. I hope this update doesn't break any rules, as I suppose I do not have any questions. Mods, let me know. I did not want to just disappear from reddit. I know a number of you have been thinking about me.

I said I would post an update before I passed away and, well, here I am. I know it is fast. But things have been happening fast. I don't mean to flood this sub with my misery. I'm on some heavy duty medications. I hope this doesn't come off as rambling.

This will be my final post. The Cancer is all through both sides of my chest and above my collarbone. It's over.

I was diagnosed with Extensive Stage small cell lung cancer and given four months to live on the 6th. Well, it seems "two weeks" was a more accurate approximation of my time. I am not long for this world.

As for what happened-- I wasn't slated to meet my hospice team till yesterday, Friday. I went to the ER on Thursday with chest pain. They took a lot of fluid out of my chest. The ER physician described my imaging as "grotesque" and immediately asked if I had considered palliation. I said I didn't see hospice till tomorrow. He said if I wanted any chance of dying at home, I needed to see them NOW, otherwise he'd have to admit me. He won't be getting any awards for bedside manner any time soon, but I greatly appreciated his candor. Several urgent phone calls later I had a palliative Nurse Practitioner in my room who went through the screening process and admitted me to their home hospice program. I went home Friday morning with a hospice kit. Met the palliative physician that evening, shortly after I posted my list of questions here.

I will not see Christmas, or Thanksgiving, or even next weekend. Every breath is work. Each one more work than the last. My team estimates that, at this rate, I will die Tuesday at the absolute latest. Probably sooner. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe tonight.

My oncologist called to personally apologize for misjudging my remaining time, but I hold him no ill will. Determining the time of death is not an exact science. I know that. I'm arranging to donate my body to science. I want them to do an autopsy and see how it got me so quickly, to help other cancer patients. The oncologist thinks the cancer may have gotten to my heart or the major central blood vessels. I didn't think small cell could move THIS fast but my oncologist says we caught it late.

My hospice team has been wonderful. I have crossed tapered from bupenorphine-- which I discontinued Wednesday--
