Kyle Machlachlan, much loved for his role as Agent Cooper in Twin Peaks, first started as an actor at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. At the time, my mom was working as the house manager, and one task among the many she was responsible for was helping get new actors settled. When she picked Kyle up at the bus stop, he walked off carrying a paper bag. She asked him about getting his other luggage, to which he told her that bag was all he had with him.
Here he is as Romeo in 1982, the role which he was initially hired for.
Another fun story, my mom was really good friends with James Avery (the dad on Fresh Prince), and still wears a bracelet he bought her.
the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
I haven’t seen this actual clip so I might be off, but a lot of times statements like this aren’t about what people do or don’t deserve for minimum wage, but the thought that it won’t solve the problem. When you raise the minimum wage, you also raise the cost of producing items, in turn raising prices. How many times have we raised minimum wage? Has it ever worked?
Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.
