Hahaha thanks!

I’m glad you liked it. I enjoyed writing the whoring article too. True story, by the way. 

Anyway, if you hadn’t seen The Chorizo Chronicles, I’m spending more time over there now. 

Keep it real,

Iconic Madrid buildings. El Pirulí, that one in Plaza España (now abandoned, I think) and something modern out there in the Avenida de Ámerica neighborhood. See also: 5 reasons why living in Madrid is awesome.

Minimum Wage Machine (Work in Progress) (2008-2010)  Custom electronics, change sorter, wood, plexiglas, motor, misc. hardware, pennies. (approx. 15 x 19 x 72 inches)  The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 4.97 seconds, for $7.25 an hour, or NY state minimum wage. If the participant stops turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine’s mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box. The MWM can be reprogrammed for different minimum wage’s in different locations.

I’m making $21 an hour at McDonald’s. Why aren’t you?

You see, I work for McDonald’s in Denmark, where an agreement between our union and the company guarantees that workers older than 18 are paid at least $21 an hour. Employees younger than 18 make at least $15 — meaning teenagers working at McDonald’s in Denmark make more than two times what many adults in America earn working at the Golden Arches.
