    Tips, Now, Equal Pay... or Pay In General

    The worth of a dollar is arbitrary.

    Walk into a CVS and my dollar will buy X+Y. Whip out a CVS card and suddenly, that same dollar will by X+Y+Z.

    So, what are we expecting to come from equal pay to pay in general if we're basing it on something so far out of an individual's control?

    I need a new washer and have been encouraged to BUY NOW, but that's not my budget. Imagine if the universe said BREATH NOW because tomorrow, oxygen will be harder to find just because of market fluxes.

    I don't believe that this is political... more social and cultural so I posted this here. Our futures prolly depend on something... else.

    Good credit will get you regular card offers to spend X within 90 days and receive a statement credit of 0.25X or so-as Visa, MC et al aren't in the charity business, these offers are inevitably bankrolled by other customers with lower credit ratings that aren't paying off their balances every month.

    Not sure about your example, I would be prepared to go back to ramen packets rather than go to a laundromat ever again.
    In the time of battle you don't rise to the occasion you resort to the level of your conditioning...

    there is no law of nature preventing ramen costing $7000 per package.
