FROGTOWN, ST PAUL–The average person spends 2 hours and 22 minutes of their day on social media. If that person was making minimum wage for their time (average in US $7.25), they would have made $5,874.67 in a year.
That’s a credit card paid off, like, yesterday. That money could be new clothes for the kids. That money could be a student loan reduced by a large percentage, or entirely gone. Imagine.
And most, if not all of us are paid no money to be on social media. And social media makes money off of us through advertising and using our personal data.
So, think about that next time you log on to scroll, those hours could be dollars to better your situation, to pay attention to a loved one, to change your life.
But today, the average person lines the pocketbook of another, without a notice or a care in the real world. Today, you can get what you deserve for your time, just think.
