Big minimum-wage hikes not new

Cox is right to point out the need for rent control.

“Our strategy should be
not only to confront empire,
but to lay siege to it.
To deprive it of oxygen.
To shame it. To mock it.
With our art, our music, our literature,
our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance,
our sheer relentlessness – and our ability
to tell our own stories. Stories that are
different from the ones we’re being
brainwashed to believe. ― Arundhati Roy
