The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
As requested by anon. :)
Let’s say that Yoruichi, Urahara, and Tessai decided to at long last come out of exile and return to Soul Society. How might everybody react?
Hisagi: Wow! That totally makes up for the three captains who lost their bankai!
Kira: Or would. If bankais were effective at all, anymore.
Matsumoto: I heard that Urahara beat an espada with his shikai and Yoruichi beat one up with her bare hands! I think having them here will help!
Renji: Yeah! And Tessai can……use kido? Loom?
Hinamori: I-I’m sure he has many hidden talents!
Kyoraku: This is very good news for us! Two new bankai users? I’ve been wondering who I could possibly find to fill the gap in Squad 8.
Kyoraku: And now I suddenly have two whole candidates!
Love: Am I just too cool for you guys or something?
Soi Fon: Yoruichi-sama is the obvious candidate! She can resume her duties as head of the Shihoin clan and take over the running of Squad 8 while Urahara Kisuke lazes around making the world a worst place and Tessai…
Soi Fon: …
Soi Fon: Um, does the Kido Corps still exist?
Soi Fon: Well whatever. I’m sure he’ll just go with Urahara in any event.
Kurotsuchi: Well I certainly hope that Urahara Kisuke is all right with running his little candy shop in the Rukongai.
Kurotsuchi: Because he will not be returning to Squad 12.
Urahara: You think I don’t want to come back, Kurotsuchi? Because I have been considering it!
Kurotsuchi: I have spent the last three days fitting the entire squad with a security system that will kill anyone who tries to entire while wearing a striped hat.
Urahara: …that seems extreme.
Kurotsuchi: IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED, I DON’T ACTUALLY LIKE YOU!
Hachigen: Tessai, my old friend, congratulations! I hope if you do restart the Kido Corps, that you remember me.
Hachigen: Seriously I’d love to hang out with some kido users again.
Ichigo: Congratulations, all of you! After all this time, Soul Society is finally welcoming you back!
Ishida: Do you think that is what happened, Kurosaki? Or do you think that Soul Society forced them back as soldiers in a war that is expected to have very high casualties?
Ichigo: No I’m pretty sure they just finally figured out that they’re awesome.
Ishida: …I cannot wait for the day that you realize Soul Society is so incredibly shady.
Aizen: Urahara Kisuke! Do you really intend to rejoin a society that even that Quincy can see is unutterably corrupt?
Urahara: Pretty much, yeah! Why, does that annoy you?
Aizen: More than you know.
Isshin: Wow! It’s like they’re letting all of the exiles back, these days!
Isshin: Or at least the ones they can use.
Isshin: The captain-level ones.
Isshin: Who have bankais. And training. And experience.
Love: Consolation beer?
Isshin: Yeah, toss that bad boy over here.
