Anaconda, Children, and Instagram: O4G16:36 YUP V yup-that-exists Libraries in LA are starting to let kids read to pay off their late fees. Each hour they spend reading knocks off $5 from their balance. The idea has exploded, having 100 kids a week reading away their debt and over 3,500 accounts cleared during the first six months of the program. YUP Follow us on Instagram too: https://www.instagram.com/yup.that.exists pup-rusty Can we figure out a way to do this to student loan debt. imthehuggernaut O O4G16:36 imthehuggernaut I would read Ayn Rand to pay down my student loans colt-kun Our library ran the expenses and realized we spent about 3,000$ MORE than what we got back in trying to collect late fees. So? We dropped them completely. No late fees. Period If you keep a book, it auto renews two times. Then it comes up as overdue. If your overdue items exceed a certain amount, your account freezes. You can't use any of the local libraries anymore until you return the items or claim them lost and pay for them. If someone else is waiting for the book, you can't renew. Its that simple.

 Libraries in LA are starting to let kids read
 to pay off their late fees. Each hour they
 spend reading knocks off $5 from their
 balance. The idea has exploded, having
 100 kids a week reading away their debt
 and over 3,500 accounts cleared during
 the first six months of the program.

 Our library ran the expenses and realized we spent
 about 3,000$ MORE than what we got back in trying to
 collect late fees. So? We dropped them completely. No
 late fees. Period
 If you keep a book, it auto renews two times. Then it
 comes up as overdue. If your overdue items exceed a
 certain amount, your account freezes. You can't use any
 of the local libraries anymore until you return the items
 or claim them lost and pay for them. If someone else is
 waiting for the book, you can't renew. Its that simple.

Being Alone, Cars, and Disney: Michael Sainato @msainat1 Likely the biggest union battle in the country right now, 41,000 union members fighting Disney's poverty wages as Disney withholds their bonuses and its barely getting covered in the media STOP WAR IE WORKERS NEED UNIT HERE MA6IC 3/29/18, 10:03 PM 6,035 Retweets 8,716 Likes ndelphinus: fckyeahitslauren: jumpingjacktrash: srsishere: wabefuhon: srsishere: Just a little taste of what’s going on at my workplace right now. We have been fighting for a raise because a lot of people who work at Disney have to work 60+ hours a week just to get by. What was their response? “Ok, everyone gets a bonus. $1000. But not all at once. $500 now and $500 at the end of the year.” (in case some people get fired or quit, so they don’t have to pay the full amount to those people). Of course, we were like “No, that’s not what we said we wanted. We want a PERMANENT RAISE.” So Disney was like OK, fine, whoever is NOT part of the union fighting for a raise gets the $1000 bonus :) Meanwhile, we are still fighting for a raise… The company I work for sells aluminum and aluminum mixed metals. I want everyone to understand that running a business is expensive and the reason why raises don’t happen is because management holds onto money to keep the business running. Equipment repair is expensive because parts have to be made. If you’re needing to work over 60 hrs to make ends meet, you need to move where it’s cheaper to live or get a job where it’s cheaper to live.Stop thinking that there’s all this money pouring in that the CEO and leading personnel are hoarding and paying the minimum to it’s employees. If you think I’m wrong, do some digging and pry about company expenses and the revenue from parks. Ok, but here’s the thing: Disney keep raising it’s prices. On literally everything. Park tickets, resort stays, merchandise, parking, meal plans, and they are even going to start charging for people to have their cars parked at the resorts. Not to mention, they obviously have money to throw around with all these expansions going on. They keep remodeling and renewing things that were fine before. This costs millions and millions of dollars. If every Cast Member at Walt Disney World received a raise, it would still only be a fraction of the price that Disney is dishing out on all these renovations and expansions. No cast member should be forced to work 60+ hours a week just to survive when they work for one of the wealthiest corporations in the world. if you can’t afford to pay your workers a living wage, you can’t afford to run a business. you don’t have a right to be a boss. that is not a thing you are entitled to. if you fail, you fail. get over it. IT’S DISNEY. Holy crap, is this a joke? Am I in the Twilight Zone? Did I seriously have to read with my own two eyes someone comparing running a small business to DISNEY? Right? We’re not talking even an indie film studio here (which, for the record, are mostly subsidiaries of major film studios), it’s fucking Disney. They own half the damned world. Their net income last year was over 14 billion dollars. Bob Iger (CEO of The Walt Disney Company) alone makes over $2 million a year, not including bonuses, stock options, and benefits.

Just a little taste of what’s going on at my workplace right now.
We have been fighting for a raise because a lot of people who work at Disney have to work 60+ hours a week just to get by.
What was their response? “Ok, everyone gets a bonus. $1000. But not all at once. $500 now and $500 at the end of the year.” (in case some people get fired or quit, so they don’t have to pay the full amount to those people).
Of course, we were like “No, that’s not what we said we wanted. We want a PERMANENT RAISE.”
So Disney was like OK, fine, whoever is NOT part of the union fighting for a raise gets the $1000 bonus :)
Meanwhile, we are still fighting for a raise…
The company I work for sells aluminum and aluminum mixed metals. I want everyone to understand that running a business is expensive and the reason why raises don’t happen is because management holds onto money to keep the business running. Equipment repair is expensive because parts have to be made. If you’re needing to work over 60 hrs to make ends meet, you need to move where it’s cheaper to live or get a job where it’s cheaper to live.Stop thinking that there’s all this money pouring in that the CEO and leading personnel are hoarding and paying the minimum to it’s employees. If you think I’m wrong, do some digging and pry about company expenses and the revenue from parks.

Ok, but here’s the thing: Disney keep raising it’s prices. On literally everything. Park tickets, resort stays, merchandise, parking, meal plans, and they are even going to start charging for people to have their cars parked at the resorts.
Not to mention, they obviously have money to throw around with all these expansions going on. They keep remodeling and renewing things that were fine before. This costs millions and millions of dollars.
If every Cast Member at Walt Disney World received a raise, it would still only be a fraction of the price that Disney is dishing out on all these renovations and expansions.
No cast member should be forced to work 60+ hours a week just to survive when they work for one of the wealthiest corporations in the world.

if you can’t afford to pay your workers a living wage, you can’t afford to run a business. you don’t have a right to be a boss. that is not a thing you are entitled to. if you fail, you fail. get over it.


IT’S DISNEY. Holy crap, is this a joke? Am I in the Twilight Zone? Did I seriously have to read with my own two eyes someone comparing running a small business to DISNEY?
