Yeah, this is an old vid but the topic is still very ‘fresh.’
FK – Marx’s solutions were evil but he was right about the problem. Most people/sheeple have jobs(just over broke) because they’re poor, not because they give a drowned rat’s ass about the corporate mission, which is to make the owners/stockholders richer.
Did American corporations move their factories after NAFTA was passed because they felt sorry for the peasants in Latin America and Asia? Only a moron or blatant liar would claim so.
They’d have us all on 16 hour days 6-7 days a week if they could get away with it, sleeping within walking distance of the plant/office and shopping at the company store with company script.
We do need basic laws to protect workers and the environment with real penalties for the corporate workaholic assholes, not just fines their companies can easily pay then return to ‘business as usual,’ while keeping the modern commies out of our governments.
And we should force the assholes to allow part time hours for those who actually want a life outside of their ‘job’ and penalize them for forcing their workers to commit slow or fast suicide, degrading their health, in the name of keeping a job. If I order something from any online retailer I have absolutely no right to expect anyone involved in that process to commit fast or slow suicide or degrade their health in the name of getting that product to me. Neither do the corporations that make, warehouse or sell those products.
Many workers have jobs just so they can have health insurance. Basic medical coverage needs to be affordable. The insurance companies are like the banksters, they wouldn’t be in business if they weren’t making money hand over fist. As the old saying goes look for the biggest nicest buildings in town.
Well now that would include the ‘just-us’ center. But that’s another vid.
As someone who’s delivered freight for corporations I know that if a driver feels required/forced to drive sleep deprived either because of a ‘just in time’ delivery system or in order to earn enough money to justify the ‘trucking lifestyle’ which is basically shit, then kills or seriously injures someone because they fell asleep at the wheel the insurance carried by the trucking company probably won’t cover all the ‘costs’ and the driver can lose everything as well as go to prison.
When companies damage their employees beyond repair they just kick them to the curb when they can because they know there’s another desperate worker waiting in line.
The key is not that the exchange is ‘voluntary’ the key is that so many are so stupid/desperate they put up with being treated like jackasses which means everyone else has to put up with the same shit treatment, if they want a ‘job.’
The commies in our govt. passed the ‘regulations,’ as in healthcare, in the name of tearing down the old system so they could install their more evil system. It wasn’t done to help anyone, but to gain power, sew discord and chaos and confusion and fear. Often they and their commie front groups are funded by the very rich men they claim to oppose.
Funny thing that.
The simple truth is that the elites know the ‘ordinary citizen’ is a herd animal that will graze and breed its way through it’s existence in this world while extolling some mindless ‘work ethic’ it was taught in school or at home or in church that was really designed to make sure it stays a good slave while working for some false ‘amerikan dream’ or ‘paradise in the next life’ with ‘pearly gates’ and golden arches, err, streets.
The income tax, brought about by the elites/banksters, was placed on every one during WWII which was also brought about by the elites/banksters, so when they steal their money out of our paychecks before they even reach our hands it proves we are still their slaves. The inter-generational parasites/constituents intentionally created by the welfare state are also slaves/tools designed to help keep the elites in power.
It’s really just one version of authoritarianism vs another because we’re still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
