Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.

In many ways this is me. Just haven’t found the corn yet.
Neil Gaiman, no!
It seemed a nicer thing to do than to point out to all the people who were writing in and yelling at me on Twitter that Twitter has a 140 character limit and explain the concept of an abbreviation to them.
Reblogging while trying to wrap my head around why someone would, publicly, give Neil Gaiman crap for, in light of Twitter character limits, abbreviating ”Doctor” to “Dr.” No rational reason comes to mind.
the ceo of abercrombie and fitch has a lot of nerve saying that ugly people shouldn’t wear his clothes when he looks like an albino orc from the lord of the rings
No shit. And is that one of those 90s collarless shirts? Is that picture old or is he just unfashionable? Or, are people trying to bring those back, like the occasional attempts at bell-bottoms or legwarmer revivals? Not going to work. Douchebags love their collars too much.

This is me to my life.
For at least the third time this month, a young child has shot and killed someone. On Tuesday afternoon, a five-year-old boy fatally shot his two-year-old sister in Cumberland County, Kentucky with .22 rifle the five-year-old was given as a gift.
“It’s a Crickett,” Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “It’s a little rifle for a kid.”
The rifle, which was usually stored in one of the home’s corners, was inadvertently left loaded, according to White. The boy’s mother was home at the time of the shooting.
“The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun,” White said, before saying the shooting will be ruled accidental. “Just one of those crazy accidents.”
Just one of those crazy accidents. You know, the completely unpredictable kind of accident that occurs when you give a five-year-old a rifle and leave it lying around the house, unattended.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because, sadly, it is. Earlier this month, a four-year-old shot and killed a deputy’s wife with a handgun. The next day a two-year-old reportedly shot his mother in the stomach with a 9mm Glock. Two days later, another four-year-old shot a six-year-old in the head, killing him.
Uh, guns are not good gifts. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t even allowed play guns at age 5. From now on, let’s just give kids soccer balls. Everyone loves soccer balls, especially those small mini ones.
