I mean, you’re “tired of people putting capitalism down”
meanwhile I’m tired of starving. I’m tired of counting pennies. I’m tired of constantly panicking about finances. giving rent money to some rich dude who owns 30 fucking homes so he can profit off of me when I’m struggling to survive.
I’m tired of having shitty health care. I’m tired of worrying what I’m gonna do if my local support group leaves because they can only find work in a city where I can’t afford rent. Or what I’m gonna do if my car breaks down and I can’t walk to the store. I’m tired of crying from stress.
I’m tired of being trapped in an endless cycle of poverty because I’m disabled and can’t work. Because SSI benefits are ridiculously miniscule, and they have strict rules against saving money or even receiving or earning a little extra. I’m tired of my food stamps benefits getting reduced while the cost of food inflates.
I’m tired of my friends being physically, sexually, and psychologically abused by their employers because they don’t have any other options. I’m tired of people having to compete against 200 other people for a job and then be told they’re lazy if they don’t have a job.
I’d like it if my bf didn’t have to leave the state for 5 months, working a job that endangers his life, so he can finish college.
but I guess that’s nothing compared to having to hear people complain about capitalism sometimes when you log into tumblr. cry more
