• Today I found out that Ben Jerry's
ice cream is "pricey" because they hire
ex-convicts, addicts, and immigrants.
They also pay their employees twice
the national minimum wage. This is a
company worth supporting.
We stan Ben Jerry's.

    • Y'all can really be gross sometimes. People come out of jail, out of addiction, with nothing, and need to rebuild from scratch. The temporary pay boost helps them start completely new lives. You only want equality when someone has more than you, not when others are suffering.

This is why Walmart was the biggest proponent of increasing the minimum wage, to hurt their competitors since they already paid more.
