Not many people think that asking others why they don't want to have a baby is an appropriate question. Yet, the laws of small talk would make you believe otherwise. People ask these questions to each other so casually, that they seldom realize how uncomfortable it can be sometimes. For this reason, Reddit user u/CuteAngryGirl took to the platform and shared a post that reads, "Half of America makes less than 35k. Stop asking us why we are not having children. Stop asking us why we are not buying homes. Stop asking us why we can't save. Stop asking us why we don't get a better job. Ask corporations why they are paying their employees low wages."

This post discusses how underpaid workers are in the US and thus, they cannot afford to save money or buy a home or have children. Even research has revealed, many young people do not want to have kids due to many disparities existing in the world. A research by the Institute for Family Studies reveals, "Millennials (four out of 10 of them!) seem especially guilty of this misguided sense of compassion for the unborn. These concerns may be well-meaning. But the idea that bringing children into the world in a 21st century-level quality of life would be somehow ill-advisedly compared to other periods of world history requires some unpacking." 

Many people agreed to the Reddit user and they even commented on the post. u/sepukkucoconuts commented, "Please don't give them any ideas. I'm not sure if Nestle is reading this, and I'd rather not see if they're willing to kidnap children for ransom." u/zoekaiylin wrote, "Don't have to look far into the cocoa industry to figure that one out. Combining the child slaves with clean water shouldn't be a human right and you can really see how great a company Nestle is. u/ashurbanipal gave his opinion, "If you want to make money just take some of what your parents gave you and buy apartments. Then double the rate and wait. The money just rolls in."

u/Mrcientist commented, "Our energy bills have gone up by 10%, we're just going to have to raise our prices by 20%. Why? Because we need to make a profit! Haha, no don't be ridiculous, of course, it doesn't go to the employees." u/BadDreamFactory expressed, "I for one am really tired of getting up and going to work every day to improve other peoples' home values, when I'd much rather have a home myself and do things to improve its value, and my just reward is being barely able to continue driving across town to improve other peoples' home values." u/sundalius explained, "Woah now. We have socialism for a protected class of individuals who happen to be minorities in fact (corporations). How can you deny the socialist greatness of America caring for this oppressed minority (corporations)?" u/ElectricExpresso wrote, "In principle yes, in reality, we know this would just result in corporate pressure to make it harder for anyone to qualify for SNAP, etc."
