Minimum Wage Machine

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little theyre earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

In break with most retailers, Costco's CEO says he supports President Obama's call to raise the minimum wage. But while the President hopes to boost it to $9 an hour, Costco would let it go even greater, to $10.10 an hour. A short term loan can help you pay for things until you get a pay increase.
