live texas

anonymous asked:

I live in texas where minimum wage is $7.25/hr AND most restaurant/food businesses only pay about $5/hr because theres a loophole with tips that they can "make your paycheck equal minimum wage with tips" so not only do get paid under minimum wage but i also get garbage tips because the company uses it to pay my minimum wage. im like what does the government expect me to do i work a 9-5 a few times a week and get $50 how the fuck am i supposed to pay for college

You gotta work retail the food industry is trash

Live Free Illustrations: Best of Toasty

(Best of Splickedy)

@splickedylit and I have been working on this fic since October 2015 and illustrating every chapter, so I thought I’d compile my favorite illustrations I’ve done!  This story has been a real journey in terms of both art and writing.  I’ve learned a lot about just diving right into backgrounds, for one thing, although they wouldn’t have been possible without ref from this gorgeously designed show!
