Minimum Wage Machine

4 years ago

Hey Luuuxers! How is your day? i hope you all stay awesome :) so look at this machine;

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 theyre 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 dayat much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

Woah what, i think it is really cool to let people know how hard you have to work for so less money, how long can you keep doing that? its so amazing if you think about it. x
