FK – They already treat workers like robots. Only the new robots won’t need breaks, sleep or food.
What does society already look like? The tool-using monkeys, probably someone’s biological robots, already mindlessly move from one task to another, wasting most of their time here in exchange for money, struggling desperately to NEVER think about anything that actually matters much less standing up for themselves against governments or employers that regularly treat them like jackasses.
The displaced well-paid manufacturing workers, if they were able to find replacement jobs, worked part-time minimum wage jobs at Walmart and Home Depot.
Economists, if they are entitled to the designation, such as Michael Porter and Matthew Slaughter, promised Americans that the fictional “New Economy” would produce better, higher-paying, and cleaner jobs for Americans than the “dirty fingernail” jobs that we were fortunate our corporations were moving offshore.
Years later, as I have proven conclusively, there is no sign of these “New Economy” jobs. What we have instead is a sharp decline in the labor force participation rate as the unemployed cannot find jobs. The replacement jobs for the manufacturing jobs are mainly part-time domestic service jobs. People have to hold 2 or 3 of these jobs to make ends meet. These part time jobs offer no medical or pension benefits.
FK – What party passed NAFTA and which president signed it? The ‘party of the little man’ and see the vid below.
They wanted desperate workers who will do or say anything to get or keep a job, show up on time and never ask inappropriate questions. They didn’t move their factories to Mexico and Asia because they felt sorry for the peasants.
FK – It should be based on the profits, or success of the corporation.
If I want to work for a few weeks for the small farmer down the road it’s our business.
When people are poor and have to have a ‘job,’ which for most isn’t voluntary, it’s desperation. When they have to spend 50 weeks a year(and often nowadays on constant mandatory overtime) in some shithole because that’s all that’s available in that area(and not all want to relocate for good reasons) then they should be able to expect to ‘make a living(an existence)’ without being treated like a jackass.
Why do you think corporations pay lobbyists? For the public good? Please.
Libertarianism is great for ‘the little man’ but the damned corporations don’t call us ‘human resources’ and ‘human capital’ and ‘consumers’ because they respect us as human beings. Look at what google is up to.
Don’t think those assholes respect us for a heartbeat.
If we don’t want the govt. treating us like jackasses why do we want to allow our employers that ‘right?’
