Do you just ever love a person so much
But not in a sexual/romantic way
You just love them so much it’s not even a friendship
It’s like they’re your sibling or a platonic soul mate
You don’t want to make out with them or do sexual things
You just want to keep them close to you and protect them and be their friend for life
Let’s be clear on what a living wage is. It is not a minimum wage. The minimum wage is set by law, in the U.S. and New York State it is $7.25 per hour. This is really a subsistence wage level and the basic needs of an individual human being cannot be met at this level in the U.S. For comparison the minimum wage in Bangladesh is $0.38 per hour. US corporations and the international business community think this quite adequate for Bangladeshi workers to live on, just as Lhota and New York business elites think that $7.25 is good enough for New Yorkers. The living wage is supposed to meet the basic needs of a worker. These needs are food, housing, and clothing and should also provide for health care, transportation costs and gas and electric charges (and maybe some recreation)– these needs vary from culture to culture. In New York City a living wage of $12.75 an hour would supposedly cover these needs according to a recent study by MIT.
“John Constantine - the real John Constantine - by Dave McKean, from the UKCAC87 booklet. Neither the Hellblazer title or McKean & Gaiman’s Black Orchid would see print until the following year, meaning that this is an interesting glimpse of the artist’s approach before he was first published at DC.”
…But done after Dave had started drawing Black Orchid, and after he’d already painted several of the Hellblazer covers, that wouldn’t be published until the following year, of course.
