Pride Is More Than Your Paycheck

A person’s paycheck is a recognition of their work. It should never be used to judge someone’s worth. People who show up to do jobs that don’t make a lot are doing the best they can. Pay shaming isn’t cool and doesn’t do anyone any good. There are many people who need to be paid more than what they make.

Most people are paycheck to paycheck workers. Some folks have to hold down two or three jobs just to make ends meet. Many work long shifts that aren’t 9-5. It’s important to support those who work hard every day, no matter what they do. Pride is more than your paycheck.

  1. I these hard times with rising prices and no change to benefits supporting those on low wages, more people are turning to food banks. The UK government habitually refuses to raise taxes or improve support for those in need. So, I buy £5-10 shopping every week and put it straight in the local food bank. It’s not much but I know that it’s useful and makes me prouder of how I use my own pay check.
    If the government won’t tax me, I’ll tax myself.
