Mary Poppins has had enough of working for the minimum wage and she’s letting everyone know in the way she does best, in song. In this great video from Funny or Die, everyone’s favorite magical nanny informs the children exactly why she can no longer make ends meet making minimum wage and how her meager paycheck disappears before it ever hits the bank. She also informs the children that “just a $3 dollar increase can make a living wage.”

I think we can all agree that it’s time that Mary Poppins, and tens of millions of Americans making the minimum wage just like her, got a raise.
