What's going on with the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen and and racial income inequality?

It seems like the major players are Adam Rapoport, editor for BA and Sohla El-Waylly, chef at BA's test kitchen. Here's a post from the BA meme page: https://www.instagram.com/p/CBMEYCDDyWU/?igshid=13vtozj3uko4s

I don't understand what's going on, but I presume it relates to the BLM movement.

I [25yrs] am afraid that within the next 5-10 yrs I will be taking care of my [66yrs] father who will have no income besides social security.

I don’t know how else to start this. I am 25 yrs old. I live in the US. My father is 66 yrs old and in good physical health, no diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, or really any major physical medical conditions.

Problem is he is showing signs of dementia/senile. I want to start by saying he smokes a lot of pot β€” everyday, multiple times a day. Idk if its the weed or dementia or both. I am sure both though. He repeats the same stuff to me over and over again sometimes and frankly it does get really fucking annoying but I keep my patience as best as I can with him. Like he’ll tell me something and tell me the same thing in the afternoon and then he’ll tell me again the following day. Just totally random stuff.

Also he is starting to do exactly what my grandmother (his mom) would do and she is now in a nursing home with either Alzheimer’s or dementia (idk the exact name). She is physically healthy but her mind is absolutely shot. Doesn’t talk, doesn’t do anything. (He has t

Bank doesn't understand the difference between gross and taxable income. Enjoy my misery.

In the process of getting a HELOC. Good credit, high income, ~45% equity in the house. Should be a no brainer.

Underwriter keeps kicking back my application because the gross income reported by my company is about $10K higher than my taxable income on my W2.

This is entirely because of pre-tax deductions for health insurance premiums and HSA contributions.

The keep getting hung up on this "discrepancy" and asking me if maybe I got a second W2 from my work that shows "the rest" of my income. I'm like "it's right there in Boxes 12c and 14 of my W2, don't you know how these things work? You're a **** bank for crying out loud."

Grrrrrr.......

EDIT: The escalation from the manager was rejected. I sent them a very politely worded nasty letter saying their underwriting department was costing them business by blindly implementing bad guidelines and am moving on.

Creating jobs is meaningless, we should invest in education, automation, universal basic income, and equality across humanity.

Hey all, first post here and I'm not sure if it fits. Mods feel free to remove if I'm mistaken.

So many of today’s politics are conflicted with double standards. Everyone praises the β€œleader” who can also wear the hat of β€œjob creator”, as if creating multitudes of meaningless and menial β€œjobs” is enough to get a pat on the back. They also get praise for keeping said β€œjobs” in the US, like that’s some sort of gold standard, when in reality it goes against all of their other capitalist values. Why should we work to keep jobs in America when the natural flow of the market decides that outsourcing jobs where they’re more valued by the people who have them is what needs to happen? Why do they preach the merits of laissez-faire economics and β€œallowing the market to decide” when they so clearly go against that? It’s hindering our society in so many ridiculous ways. So ridiculous that this system needs to be changed.

Hi Reddit,

My name is Jonathan Herzog and I’m a Democrat running for Congress in New York’s 10th District (the west side of Manhattan south Brooklyn).

COVID-19 is causing a 9/11 death toll every single day. We’ve entered a new Great Depression. More than 40 million Americans are unemployed. Yet Congress has been on recess. If New York had shut down just 10 days sooner, up to 80% of all deaths could have been avoided. Our politicians have been asleep at the switch.

We need to wake up. We need a Representative with 21st century solutions for 21st century crises. I won’t sit back as we watch our city and country burn and say, β€œwe’re fucked.”

I’m a civil rights organizer and legal advocate born and raised on the border of Hell’s Kitchen and the Upper West Side. I was part of the founding team that built Andrew Yang’s 2020 presidential campaign, joining as the 6th hire, helping get Yang on Rogan, qualify for the DNC debates, and bring universal basic income to the mainstream.

Aita for reporting my friend's merch store and destroying her only source of income?

I have a friend who has recently got a butt ton of followers from streaming on Twitch and YouTube. She doesn't have any income except for welfare and Onlyfans atm and she can't monetize her YT channel because her content is too adult. That's what she told me, I have no idea how YT works but she definetely isn't monetized, there's no ads or anything. She also has a 4 year old daughter and is a single parent.

To make money from her streaming my friend has recently started selling merch. She's got a whole load of stuff out, from mugs to sweaters and tees and keychains and some of them have her Twitch name and catchphrase on but a lot of them are just generic, like pictures of a cartoon dog or an ice cream or whatever. Stuff that she likes and is kinda part of her "brand".

I'm not entirely sure if it's relevant, but the show posits that Bundy did once score four touchdowns in a single football game while in high school, which may have affected his earning potential.

How to avoid disclosing your income when asked directly?

Something that really bugs me (25F) is when people ask how much money I make, for two main reasons:

  • usually it is asked maliciously or out of "bad" curiosity;

  • people will automatically form an opinion about you (doesn't matter if you make lots or very little) ;

How do you answer in a way that is not confrontational but puts people in their place?

EDIT: Since so many of you are asking I have been asked the question by people (not friends) who were surprised by my position and potential income as a young woman. I felt that was intrusive and they were not genuinely interested in the job itself. I do not mind answering unless I feel that it will become gossip 2 seconds later. Also, I do not work for the government.

Hello Reddit!

My name is Keenan Dakota, I have lived at Twin Oaks, an income-sharing, intentional community in rural Virginia for 36 years, since 1983. I grew up in northern Virginia, my parents worked in government. I went to George Mason University where I studied business management. I joined Twin Oaks when I was 23 because I lost faith in the underpinnings of capitalism and looking for a better model. I have stayed because over time capitalism hasn't looked any better, and its a great place to raise children. While at Twin Oaks, I raised two boys to adulthood, constructed several buildings, managed the building maintenance program, have managed some of the business lines at different times.

I’ve seen both sides of Income Inequality and I can confidently say anyone who doesn’t think this is a MAJOR issue in USA is ignorant

I didn’t grow up rich or poor - middle class suburban family. If you asked my friends I grew up with, I grew up rich. If you ask my high school/college friends, they’d say I grew up poor.

My best friend growing up (we’ll call him Tim) came from a poor family. His parents were two of the smartest people I’ve met, but because they were immigrants, had to settle for low-paying jobs. I remember sleeping over their house and ALL electricity (except AC which barely worked) would be shut off at 9 to save money. No playing video games late into the night, not even tv. I remember when my friend admitted to me they used food stamps to get by. On multiple occasions, my friend was homeless so he crashed with me for a while.

Then my dad started doing a little better at work and could afford to send me to a private high school and a huge public university. That’s when I realized I wasn’t as β€œrich” as I thought. These kids are pulling up in their BMWs at 16-17 years old. This was considered their

Irregular income. Never made more than $30k a year. I just hit a networth of $150,000 at age 27.

Like many people who are on the path to FIRE, we experience many advantages to help us get started. I started working at age 16 while living at home. I saved around $5000 to $10,000 per year. I learned about index funds around age 19 and FIRE at age 23.

While I attended college with a semi-full-ride (tuition was covered, lived with my parents), school was never my strong suit. I barely managed to survive high school emotionally despite my strong performance and had many undiagnosed learning disabilities. After struggling for a few years, I dropped out. This is when I started to learn more than all my years in school. Cooking, budgeting, complex PTSD, FIRE, philosophy, how to read a map, repairing computers, I got my first smartphone (never had a phone in school) and learned how to install custom OS on it, fell back in love with riding a bike, over came dopamine addictions, was reading books for fun for the first time. It felt like life was truly worth living.

CMV: All forms of monetary penalties should be based on the persons income

For example: Why should I pay the same amount of money for speeding as another person who earns 10x more money, than I do.

Isn't the whole reason for montery punishment, to make the person feel the impact of his/hers wrongdoing?

But if a person, who earns 100k a month has to pay 300€ for a speeding ticket, do you really think that person cares at all?

Someone who earns just 1k a month will no doubt feel the impact, paying a third of his salary for one illegal action.

So are the any actual downsides in implementing a percantage based penalty?

As far as I know, some countries already adapted that kind of system and I'm not aware of any real problems with it.

Residents of Bikini Bottom live off a Universal Basic Income funded by mine harvesting

How do SpongeBob and Squidward lead middle class lives while being paid so little by Mr Krabs? How does Patrick make a living? Why does the show barely show the workplaces of the fish who regularly eat at the Krusty Krab?

I as many other viewers have wondered. Then I put the pieces together with some other facts.

  1. Bikini Bottom is located in the middle of nowhere (Krusty Towers), founded as a 19th century colonial hamlet (Pest of the West) with no explanation given for its existance.
  2. Bikini Bottom is a town of significant size, and seems to be larger and have more facilities in later episodes (indicating growth), so it must have something attractive
  3. Bikini Bottom has many mines and caves below its surface (Mustard O’Mine, The Wreck of the Mauna Loa, Chum Caverns)

My theory is that there’s a large mining network in Bikini Bottom, most clearly shown in Mustard O’Mine where there’s an actual train taking people from mine to mine. The miners who found the mines then set up Bikini

My husbands mom sold her retirement dividend stocks a couple weeks ago for gold/silver without any other income.

A financial advisor built a portfolio for her to live off of with monthly dividend payments. She was getting around $2800 a month after taxes in income and only needed $2000 to live the rest was reinvested back into the stocks each month. She does not qualify for social security and didn't know that selling the stocks would mean she would not be paid she just freaked out when the balance fell by half then looked into ways to preserve wealth. I looked through the account history and it looks like she owned O, KBWY, SRET, and SPHD. No matter how I weight those funds I cant get the monthly payments to where they were before now. She has just over $500k cash in her brokerage account after I sold the precious metals ETF. Shes 72 years old and healthy but was a stay at home mom so not much in work experience. She has some credit card debt that takes about $300 a month a car payment of $480 and a mortgage with only 4 years left at $770. I tried calling the advisor she used before but he said

Is the extra income worth it?

I have a weekend job that I’ve been doing for a little less than a year. I earn about $300 for 16 hours of work per weekend.

I originally got the weekend job to help pay for my rent, however I just recently got a raise at my primary job that now makes my income sufficient for my cost of living. I also am moving to an apartment in August that is probably about $200 cheaper per month than my current place. So now, the paycheck from my second job gets deposited directly into my savings account.

It would be great to keep my weekend job and build up savings, but I recently had to take off 2 weeks for surgery. Now the thought of going back to work 7 days a week is overwhelming.

Currently at my weekend job I am getting paid to do about 5 minutes of work in an 8 hour day, because COVID-19 pretty much shut down most of our operations. So I am planning on keeping the job at least until I have to actually start β€œworking” again. Which is potentially starting in August.

No way out - 0 income & 0 support - Italy.

Hey everyone,

I don't see what advice anyone can give to help in this situation but at this point I'm unsure what I can do.

So the situation is I lost my job where I live in Rome, started a business that then had to shut before making any money due to th virus.

I've used up all of my savings trying to survive since losing my job and have 0 income despite trying everything to find work remotely, in Italy or even by relocation to the UK.

My monthly outgoings are: Internet and phones: 50 euros Condominium: 150 circa Rent: 800 euros Food: 300-400 month (children) Utilities: 80

Total: 1480 euros basic outgoings

Girlfriend gets 380 euros a month from the government and that's it, to help with the baby.

We get no other help or support and I have been rejected from financially support numerous times.

Me and my family stopped all unnecessary spending awhile ago and I've even borrowed 4500 to try and keep me going and this is almost gone.

All my assets have already been sold, apart fr
