The Last Message Out of Seattle

The Last Message Out of Seattle April 1, 2015

“These are just a few of the images we’ve recorded. And you can see, it wasn’t what we thought. There’s been no war here and no seismic event. The environment is stable. It’s the Minimum Wage. The $15/hr minimum wage we started to phase in today. It was supposed to calm the population, offer more access to resources, and generally give people things they don’t deserve because they haven’t worked hard enough for it. Well, it works. The people here stopped fighting about money. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There’s 3 million people here, and they all just let themselves die.


“I have to be quick, but a tenth of a percent of the population had the opposite effect to the minimum wage. Given slightly more money, this group, who we’re calling the Takers, decided that rich, hardworking people’s money belonged all to them. They started looting and beating up the wealthy almost immediately. They’ve killed most of us…. but we meant it for the best.”
