Dear Congresswoman Nita Lowey

To Nita Lowey,

Please do your job of representing people, not big chicken corporations and help America’s farmers be able to make 1/10,000th of the living their corporate overlords make.

Dear Perdue

To Whom It May Concern:

Big Box Chicken Dicks

Big Box Chicken Dicks

After learning of your company’s treatment of farmers on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, I’d like to inform you that Perdue products will no longer be served in our household until your company compensates its farmers with a living wage (which is above minimum wage – as that’s not a living wage – and above any and all poverty lines).

Dear Governor Dayton

Dear Governor Dayton,

While Not Many Americans Make Minimum Wage, Those Who Do Suffer For It

While Not Many Americans Make Minimum Wage, Those Who Do Suffer For It

While I appreciate reading about your bill to increase minimum wage, I am disturbed by the fact that your bill will take two years to fully come to fruition.

 

Unfortunately, our business society is aimed at having the lowest expenditures possible at the expense of our own people.
The minimum wage function is broken. If it kept up with inflation, it would currently be $10.10 per hour. But the federal government has gone corrupt, paid off by the corporations to give up on the little guys.

Even $9.50 an hour is arguably not a living wage. My hope is that all states or the federal government will raise the minimum wage to over $10 per hour and see food stamp and welfare recipient enrollment numbers drop, at the expense of $1.50 menu  prices at McDonald’s, $12-priced jeans at Wal-Mart and, perhaps, a million dollars less in salary for CEOs.

But regardless of all that, I thank you for your attempt to help and request that you expedite the increase to be required sooner, like by the end of this calendar year.

Your residents and non-residents alike will thank you and appreciate the true public service!

Sincerely,

Rachel L. Arbeit

Dear Mitch McConnell

Dear Mr. McConnell,

Truth Be Damned. GOP Agenda Forever!

Truth Be Damned. GOP Agenda Forever!

Please do not speak useless rhetoric about President Obama being against women because poverty has been increased… something your party is more responsible for with your anti-raising the minimum wage and anti-equal pay legislation!

Dear Delta

Dear Delta,

Seats that look like they work

Seats that look like they work

You e-mailed to ask how my flight was? Oh, I’ll tell you how my flight was.

It was alright.

It would have been nice, however, if the flight attendants would have actually tried to reset the entertainment units in our row when they said they would.

In-flight entertainment systems provide sanity for cross-country flights, so when the service is lost, it is disappointing. Especially, when it is only lost in the row you are sitting in. This problem was, thankfully, fixed, after repeated requests to have it fixed.

As a former flight attendant, I understand that there is a lot of in-flight work to be done, such as gossiping, wiping down the galley counter a hundred times, reading People magazine and trying not to fall asleep. However, walking through the aisle and maybe seeing if anyone needs you and/or offering water, is sometimes a good way to spend some time.

In order to get the flight attendant’s attention, we had to ring the call bell, which I hate doing cause the ding is annoying and it’s like snapping at the waitress: it’s rude and you shouldn’t have to do it because the person should just kinda be around.

Then, of course, the flight attendant never rebooted and never came back to see if it worked or if anyone wanted anything, just went back to disappear. So we had to hunt down another flight attendant who, thankfully, rolled her eyes and had the lead flight attendant do it.

So we got to see a movie, but not without practically begging.

Our experience was, as usual, disappointing. However, we will likely fly Delta again because you guys fly everywhere and are cheap and we like to fly everywhere and be cheap.

Also, I was the one who booked the tickets for myself and my companion, Chris, on my credit card and you e-mailed me… yet the e-mail read “Dear Christopher.” If you need/prefer his opinion, please have that experience by simply cursing yourself off.

Sincerely,
Rachel L. Arbeit

Dear Mr. Boehner

Dear Mr. Boehner,

I’m writing to remind you that the United States of America is supposed to be a free country. Not a Christian country, nor a country where a homophobic man with power can decide that his values are the values of an entire nation.
