I work as an artist for Trader Joe's, who claims that they love supporting neighborhood artists and giving back to the community. One of the things they're often praised for is the fact that all of their signs are made by artists in house. I get paid the same as the rest of the crew. Not what my skill as an artist is worth, I know, but it's almost enough to pay the bills. I found out today that they are downsizing the art department across the board. I'm beyond heartbroken, I finally got into a place where I could do what I love only to find out that it's being taken away from me. They're limiting our supplies, shrinking what little space that we have, giving us less time to work on projects, and giving the rest of the (untrained) crew the permission to make signs. They're basically stripping us of our implied job title, our resources, and preventing us from actually doing what we love. When this goes into effect at the end of October, the signs are going to be rushed, unfishined and probably ugly and theyll still claim to support artists and the neighborhood. They lie. Help me be annoying about this, please
If you want to know more about how they actually treat their artists I'm happy to share
This is really sad, I’m so sorry. Companies “care” about issues insofar as it helps their bottom line. If they can ever retract their good deeds to make a little more money, they will

Remarkable protests happening in Iran right now amongst brave women and children against a dangerous authoritative government.
The media has done a terrible job covering this pivotal moment in the Middle East

what do you think is the best way to go about gun control with illegally acquired firearms?
That starts with reducing the incentive to illegally acquire guns in the first place. Gangs, criminals, etc. are often forced into their violent circumstances due to underlying social problems. Poverty, racism, inadequate housing, mental health issues, drugs, etc. Address these and fewer people will resort to violence as their means to survive.

What happens if the GOP gains control of both the house and senate
The same situation we've seen in the past. More tax breaks for the rich. Less private sector regulations, more war, more bigotry, etc. etc.

How to privatize public services:
Step 1: exacerbate a social problem
Step 2: prevent government from fixing it
Step 3: spin privatization as a solution that government cannot provide

Why do conservatives hate Lizzo and Megan Thee Stallion?
Fake culture war, racism, sexism and misogyny, more of the same bigotry

I'll tell ya about the Italian prime minister: she's anti abortion, anti lgbt, an obvious fascist (there is a video of 19yo her saying that mussolini was the best italian politician of the last 50 years, and that he did good things for Italy. Look it up), also seems to be anti-any religion that isn't Christianity... is there anything else needed to say? She's MADE of shit from head to toes. Yes, italy has her first woman prime Minister. But to cite a friend of mine "we elected our first woman prime Minister but we're italy so she's a conservator." Fucking fascists.
If it wasn't already obvious, I'm italian and currently living this political hell.
Yeah I only hear more and more bad stuff about her. It’s pretty clear Meloni embodies neo-fascism. I’m sorry you have to live under her rule.

So women are good unless they’re white then they’re fascist? Do you actually know anything about the new Italian primary minister?
