Here’s a small talk I did with my brother whose real name is Doctor Destroyer. -K
In Dungu, DCR, our rehabilitation center for LRA affected children, Center Elikya, had its grand opening in January. It’s the first rehabilitation center of its kind in the region. The curriculum includes catch-up classes to make up for the schooling the children missed due to LRA.
Blake Fall-Conroy, “Minimum Wage Machine,” 2008-2010
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.
This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
ah yes totally mentioning this in my paper
