A simple article about a McDonald’s worker who is unable to purchase food there (not that you should) turned into a free-for-all about that woman’s choices as opposed to a critique on the corporate practices that keep her poor. Why do we continue to place blame on poor people for being poor and refuse to turn the focus on the billion-dollar companies they work for that magnify their profits based on YOUR taxes? Can we make poor-shaming a thing? We have shaming for everything else apparently, but the one that most directly affects the largest majority of us slips under the radar because we like to be able to point to someone and say they’re doing worse than we are.
This is 19 year old Marie Fowler. Her cancer just returned, and has been declared terminal. She’s already in Hospice Care. Her final wish is to meet Kellin Quinn from Sleeping With Sirens. Please, make it happen. Spread the word. This girl deserves it.
The small amount of notes on this post worries me.
