Magical Muffin Ride

kinomatika:

I’ve been panicking about making this post for a while now and I’m so overwhelmed and terrified and I can’t think of anything else to do right now so I guess I’ll do it.

There’s a pretty good chance that I might end up homeless soon.

The long and short of it is that my husband…

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

omg

this is terrifying

THIS IS IMPORTANT, PLEASE DON’T FEED THESE TREATS TO YOUR DOGS
My mom bought these recently and they have made both of my dogs really sick. She later saw an article online about duck and sweet potato treats made in China(these fit the description) killing dogs and the FDA is doing nothing about it. Apparently over the last few years 600 young, healthy dogs have died after eating these treats and I don’t want anymore to suffer or be killed so please spread the word and don’t let your dogs have these!

This is VERY important! A lot of these animal treats made in China are killing dogs and cats. It’s not that the FDA isn’t doing anything about it, it’s simply that they don’t know why it’s happening.
They are conducting investigation after investigation, but the ingredients used in the food killing dogs (and 10 cats) is used in many different brands and companies that have been shipped, all from overseas. At this rate, a total recall and knowledge of where it’s coming from has proven very difficult. Just recalling one brand in particular will not solve the problem. Please conduct a thorough search about any brand of treats that have been made in China should you pick them up for your pet before you feed it to them. If all else fails, just buy local.
EDIT: Here is a list of food that has been recalled (so far) with more information 
Please PLEASE be aware that this isn’t only happening to dogs, but some cat treats, too!

I’ve put this off as long as possible but I am very very scared for my dog and I need to ask for help.

as my followers might remember, back in January Baelfire, my service dog, started having seizures. I took him to the vet, they looked him over and x rayed him and said they didn’t know what was happening and that if he had more seizures I should come in again. I had just switched him onto a new food and there were people online saying their dogs had also had seizures on that food, so I put him back on his old food and it seemed like things got better. 

That was January. In June, Bae had three more seizures. He hasn’t had one since as of July 24, thank god. But his behavior has rapidly changed - my roommate said he seems more like a five month old puppy than a three year old dog. He’s shaking his head a lot and whining more and holding his ears funny, and at one point apparently (my roommate told me this, I was gone at the time) seemed to forget where he was or who my roommates were and cowered in the corner for a while before returning to “normal”. My roommate who’s a trainer spoke to a vet-tech friend of hers and apparently she said the signs point to a brain tumor. I can’t in good conscience allow him to continue working as my service dog with his health being this bad.

I can’t at this point afford vet care for him. Right now I have about 50 dollars for the next two months after rent and utilities are paid, and that has to cover my food as well as his. I can possibly do it in September when my financial aid comes in, but I am very afraid that it will be too late by that point. If you have even a couple of dollars you can drop in my Paypal, or if you could signal boost this post, I would appreciate it a lot.

please please please help aaron and his puppy if you can, they are both Very Important and not having a good time of things right now :(

Alright guys listen up!

The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.

Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.

Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.

The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.

So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.
