Fuck these faggot corporations.
Both of these companies could fix this problem instantly by paying an adequate minimum wage.
That's how the market is supposed to work,
The cost of living is rising but their wages are staying the same so they have to raise them in order to keep their workers.
But they refuse to do this and insist on keeping their wages near somalian tier at 7 an hour.
Then they have the ball's to complain about a lack of applications and call people lazy for not wanting the job.
Never give a single penny to these fucks.
Make all your food at home.
>>
>>63510502
It's an artificial shortage. They're hiring less people because legally required minimum wage is skyrocketing. If they have to pay $15 minimum per worker rather than $12 they'll just hire 1 or more less workers per shift to justify the new increase in expense plus the now changed insurance cost because they aren't getting as big of a discount for number of people covered plus some other esoteric nitty gritty so it's more like 2+ people lost per shift. On shifts that had a shortage of staff already by running minimum crew to save costs. So, now 3 shifts isn't viable in places that have night shifts and weekend shifts and 2 shifts isn't viable in places that ran 2 before.
Soon, only small businesses will be able to run 2 shifts and then the big companies will get huffy at their success and they'll do another push to crush the little guys like they always do and then those little guys won't be able to afford 2 shifts and so the death of little business and the middle class continues apace.

>>
>>63510675
No you don't. Things will get wildly more expensive because those companies will use the immediate entry cost of the switch over and required techs to justify the hike while every other place has to hike their prices up to make ends meet because now their income is fucked from the middle class that will no longer exist.
It'll last for a bit then the depression will occur and now there is no viable way to revive the market like the last few times meaning the global market crashes.

There is no way to target inflation without killing the working man. Reduce money in the system by reducing bond prices and increasing interest rates to break the every man and cause job losses OR use internal price and wage control policies(like we are now) to actively fight inflation and break the every man and cause job losses.
Now there are no workers for raging in the wage cage and big companies aren't going to just sit there and accept the concept of rolling over and dying and considering they hold the real power in this relationship they have more options than everyone else does to solve there issues. Now, the country has no jobs permanently as those companies either move to other countries where they can still make money off cheap labor or they automate it all and stick around leeching off a country they no longer benefit. All while the majority of the population starves.

Should some wage rebellion(never happening) ever occur they'll do what damage needs doing to make it end and shove the survivors back into their cages now that they know the new status quo.

How do you target inflation at the source? Introduce rent control? Good luck getting that passed, even in liberal California.
>>
There is no fixing inflation without fucking over the 99% barring population control. Reduced population means the money in the system is split less ways meaning more money per individual to reinvest and less money spent supporting them overall.
It's the only way that doesn't directly fuck over the living conditions or the 99% but that does mean you'll have to convince the majority to stop having kids wholesale. The dumbasses in society will never accept this because they are never going to be capable of accepting or seeing the bigger picture.

I have a theory that this is what the covid vax is secretly about.
They are aiming for depopulation because they know the senerio you just discussed is coming soon and they want to nip as many useless eater's in the bud as possible before it happens to soften the blow.
They'll make it like the flu shot where you have to get one yearly and your lifespan will be shortened with each and every booster shot you get.
Meanwhile they'll unleash new artificially manufactured variants of covid that bypass the previous vaccines and are more deadly/transmissible than the previous batch of variants every year in order to justify the yearly mandatory shots.
The normies will be hunting down the remaining unvaccinated for the "greater good" eventually.

Never happening. Every single instance, every single one, that has resulted in a loss of income for them they have countered with internal policy changes and strong arm governments to cover the loss and create more income hence why we're where we are now.
It will just be riots, riots will be put down, stricter living is enforced on everyone, companies make yet more money, repeat until they own everything.
There is no unified group that has as much resources or powers as they do not even at a governmental level and you'll never convince the entire human population to sacrifice modern living for stone age living and to never again have a thought of greed or getting ahead of others again which would be the only way to starve out the companies.

Exceptionally doubtful. WAY WAY too much risk for excess runaway and relying on shit not to mutate which it always fucking does. It also means you run the risk of having a random immune group which means you're rolling the dice on the group that will inherit the future which is also retarded. These hypothetical people are smart enough to enact such a system but somehow magically retarded enough not to see even one let alone all the pitfalls of it? It just doesn't pan out, anon.
Better to do something like selective processing, of which there are a variety of means eugenics being only one of them, so you ensure the right groups make it forward and the poor value groups fade out in ways they can't effectively stop that way you ensure your future groups will produce people that are genetically varied enough to not be wiped out by one small disease, smart enough to keep society running and occasionally pop out smarties to run the rest, contained enough to ensure no easy slip-back, and won't produce too many smarties for the system to handle.
It's easier to produce than you think. Economic capabilities and class mobility is one way to ensure it occurs because now the smarties can claw their way up and stay there longer and the less desirables die off more and more as their access to resources is slowly choked out ensuring the remainder are those that are good enough to scrape by and those that are good enough to claw to the top and stay there. If the top boys birth retards they matriculate down and leaving a seat for a new lowbie to climb into all while ensuring genetic variance occurs via people being people.
And no, that is not what is occurring now. What is occurring is a naturally occurring system that crops up when humanity continues apace the way it has. It could be converted over but the current system is WAY too messy for it to occur or for it to have been designed.
>>
>>63511167
Doubtful. If those people had the actual internal drive to further themselves they'd have been using the system to do so already rather than run from it.
Yes, being free of the system allows for a greater allowance for this to occur but allowing people to do something hard and that takes serious effort and them actually doing it are 2 wildly different things.
The vast majority of the population are lazy, anon. Not even in a bad way but in a way of why spend the time and resources on doing something that is now no longer needed to be done to survive.
If that wasn't the case every current NEET would be out there getting jacked and becoming chads now that there is no obstacle to self improving freely.

When is the Labor shortage businesses are supposed to raise wages so they can get the staff they need.

But all these businesses have this entitlement cheap labor. Like you feel they can pay a very low wage and somebody will come and take that job. With illegal immigration clamped down, there are too many jobs available for people and only the business is willing to pay more but what is now an uncommon resource (people) are able to get that resource.

>>
>>63511382
It can only run off that because they're allowed to import cheap labor and use illegal labor.

This is one of the reasons that entry level positions require multiple years of experience, so they can take more qualified candidates from outside of the country and pay them less. Instead of actually taking on someone who is entry level and training them.

The majority of people responsible for these decisions got jobs they were in no way qualified or trained for and rose through the ranks on seniority alone

That's not the case here where I live. Well, they are understaffed often, but that's because they don't want to hire enough people.
Here we have literally 1000 people applying for one job, in basically any field that doesn't require education.
I'm not joking. I know people who manage gas stations, grocery stores etc who get hundreds and hundreds of applications for one listing as a cashier. Stories like these even show up in the local newspaper quite often. And yet nobody cares. The politicians just keep bragging about how low the unemployment is, when that number is clearly fake because a bunch of conditions apply. Oh, you haven't worked in the last year, well then you're no longer unemployed. Oh, you work 2 hours a week but want a full time job, well then you are not unemployed. Oh, you are in university but want a side job to make ends meet, well then you're not unemployed. Etc.

Exactly. And by the way, they do the same with the definition of inflation. It's a total farce. And people don't seem to care and it never gets any attention.
Practically everything increases in price by like 10% to 20% per year, especially the big ticket items like housing prices, food, etc, yet inflation is still somehow only like 1%.

>They mean the inflation of stock prices and funny money on the market
No. Because all assets, like stocks, also increase in price by like 10 to 20% per year. So that's not how they come up with the magical 1% inflation number.
This is why the rich get richer. The value of their assets increase every year. Meanwhile the wage for wagies hardly every increases.
Use this to your benefit. Live frugally and invest as much of your income as possible. That's how you get off this ride, that's how you become independent.
>they will place greater importance on what happens with speculative investments that produce nothing over what happens in their day to day lives
Kinda true, but not really. Of course the rich and people in power will protect their investments. And the plebs know that the job market goes to shit if the stock market goes to shit, so they want to keep it up. But beyond that the plebs don't really give a fuck because they have no investments, except maybe a home and they obviously don't mind higher home prices in that case.

And even Euros who have a much better deal than Americans will regularly fight their employers to preserve their rights or get an even better deal?

I work retail and they are really going all out trying to find people.
Several raises to compete with other retail places in the area raising their pay.
Benefits increased and available after the first month rather then the first 6.
All kinds of employ appreciation perks and parties.
Even added on significantly to the quarterly bonuses.

Even after all that we still can't hire enough to get full staffed and the few new people we do snag tend to leave after the first two weeks or earlier.

I just hope my nest egg will be enough for when the other shoe drops and inflation hits the consumer market full force.
I really need to get out of cash but don't have enough to get into real estate. Only got like 6 months in silver as far a expenses.
I am getting more and more worried as more and more money is printed off and we get closer and closer to lockdowns ending. Shit is going to be ugly and most people aren't prepared at all.

Most food places have you sign a document where you waive your breaks if it's too busy. You don't have to sign it, in fact, they can't force you to sign it and they can't not hire you for not signing it, but wagies just sign everything put in front of them when their hired.

>>63514765
This. Study after study shows that the salary of minimum wage workers has a comparatively miniscule result on inflation of prices. This is because minimum wage workers, despite making up a massive proportion of all workers, make up a miniscule portion of all income and wealth in society. Raising their salaries massively increases their spending power and quality of life while affecting the total amount of the money in the system by almost nothing.

Anyone campaigning against this is either a corporate shill or a deluded cuck

Yeah, assuming you're not an illegal immigrant, call them on that shit.
I worked in restaurants for years and managers/owners always try to pull that shifty shit since a lot of the workers have barely a leg to stand on legally. But if you're a citizen, fuck them. Call them on it or threaten to call department of labor on their asses. Considering your coworkers are all quitting, it's not like they can fire you.

The people at these places will literally be working full time hours but not only are they almost always classed as part time, they are also paid as such. People are finally wising up that these places are shit and not worth the light of day. The issue is not that suddenly nobody wants to work, the issue is that they are all fucking burned out and companies dont want to do any actual change to combat it. Even the illegal immigrant/H1B memes are catching on since they would barely make any money here anymore as opposed to just staying where they are.

Unless you're talking about family owned enterprise where the workers aren't actually paid a wage, you somehow got it backwards.

Small companies that rely on low cost employees are simply pushed out of existence.

I get you. Maybe they should try incentivising employees to move from less successful areas. If the good places are short on labour like the bad ones, offer staff at the bad ones some cover for housing expenses to encourage them to move. That would probably wind up cheaper in the long run, and ensures they get the good and dedicated staff.
Also a chance to put some sneaky shit about their housing expenses into the contract so that as long as they live in the area they can't work for anyone else.

Corporations already pay their workers above minimum wage just so they can outbid their competition (other corporations). The minimum wage going up indefinitely is the one sure way for corporations to hold a monopoly on cheap workforce. In other words, corporations are perfectly fine with minimum wage increases.

People are talking about inflation and free riders and unemployment and all of this sort of high concept economics shit but the truth of the matter is the reason people aren't taking these jobs is that they're fucking boring and the boomer workplace policies actively make the job worse
I worked at Bass Pro for 2 months and despite the job being the easiest fucking thing I've ever done (literally you basically just had to be a warm body and occasionally press a few buttons on the register)
it was fuckung agony because
>couldn't use your phone or entertain yourself even when the store was empty

>the software on everything was 20 years old and had no UX or QA you would waste collective hours fixing mistakes or waiting for it to unfreeze
>the store closing and inventory procedures were massive unoptimized timewasters which made your entire day worse
Now I have a "real" job as a technician for a research project and I'm making basically double what I made. It's "hard work" but instead of making me feel horrible I feel fulfilled.

I think unhappy is the wrong word. They want people to feel defeated.

The rich want workers to feel like they have no options, there's no escape, there's no opportunity, and that they're lucky to receive the portion of table scraps they get in their meager existence.

The poor are too tired, depressed, overworked, and resource starved to be able to actually have the ability to critically think about their lives and find ways to escape the situation they're in. This creates a cheap, easy to manipulate, and under-educated working class they have complete control over and can be used to expand their own power and wealth.

Neither party can stand to see other people who do not look, sound, act, or believe exactly as they do prosper. They would rather the entire system collapse than see someone else succeed who is on the opposite side of the aisle.

This is the only rational explanation I can come up with based on how people have been behaving recently.

Sometimes I wonder if virtue signalling is just how the more confused breed of sociopaths try to fake empathy. They try desperately to appear good, but because they don't feel it, they do these really bizarre, over-the-top things like protecting the rights of murderers and rapists over that of their victims.

Someone argue for or against this, pls:
A sociopath would defend the criminal over the victim because the victim has already suffered. It happened in the past. It doesn't matter. In an attempt to be good, the confused sociopath tries to prevent new suffering being inflicted on the criminal. He doesn't understand that the victim continues to suffer due to memory or trauma. He doesn't understand the desire for revenge.

this is just my opinion, but maybe there shouldn't be anything wrong with being proud about being an honest worker, instead of being a scheming manipulative leech who earns his wealth by creating nothing of value. the biggest problem to me, is that being an honest unskilled worker doesn't pay. hell, sitting on your ass can earn you more, and if you do a bit of scalping on the side, you're pretty much set. something like a Negative Income Tax would help this situation a lot.

There is a very big difference between being an honest worker and a sucker, and I will never understand how or why in this obese sharthole that line has been completely blurred. My grandpa dropped out of school in the 9th grade to work at a coal mine and managed to build his own house, support a family of 3 kids, become a successful local musician with all kinds of instruments from all over the world (mostly guitars and harmonicas) all while working at that same mine until he retired for a bit. Nowadays that is borderline impossible, and people are realizing that.

yeah, but the problem is that being an honest worker usually means you're getting fucked over by definition. if you're smart enough to realise it, you either wear it like a badge of honor, or you start scheming and screwing other people over, because by that point you're convinced that being honest simply doesn't pay.

Its becoming extinct since companies clearly do not value actual honest workers anymore. You could bust your ass nonstop and be one of the most efficient people there, but if management does not like you due to some arbitrary bullshit then good luck getting anywhere from it. Only nowadays you cant just work hard and then go home to play hard, pay has stagnated across the board while both prices and even productivity have skyrocketed over the last few decades. If you can make more on unemployment than by working 40 hours a week at some place then that says a lot more about said places than anything else. Companies get exactly what they pay for, and if they want to be cheap then they will get nothing but cheap.

Yeah, cause they're using circumstances as cover to do something they wanted to do anyway.

Sure they have signs up about how this is totally to clean and disinfect the store and keep you safer, but everyone knows what's going on - they don't make much in the way of sales overnight.

I didn't have any problems to begin with considering i never subject myself to the dehumanization that is full time minimum wage work in 2021. I've simply taken advantage of generous coof benefits, invested my existing savings and spent the time searching for a job I believe pays a fair wage for my time and where I can set my own schedule. For my age i have a sizeable passive income and some savings put away that allow me to pursue my hobbies, develop interpersonal relationships and study things I'm genuinely interested in. All things that make my quality of life orders of magnitude higher than any dumb trailer trash bragging about how they get to piss in bottles on their 12 hour shift with no breaks for 8 dollars an hour.

It's pretty evident you're just been indoctrinated by the angry boomer mentality that demands the world bow down and kiss ass for their bottom line. Your ideology, your moral judgements and your moral platitudes about work are all worth less than dog shit.

>defend the criminal
I assume you're talking about rights protecting people from unreasonable search and seizure or evidentiary rules at trials, etc. What you're forgetting is that everyone is presumed innocent, not guilty. When you call a person "a criminal", are you referring to someone who has been found guilty of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, or someone who was accused of a crime?

>He doesn't understand the desire for revenge
You don't understand how the criminal justice system works. Revenge isn't "forgotten" or "not understood", it's deliberately kept out of the administration of justice because we live in a modern society, not under tribalism/feudalism. The factors driving sentencing are deterring others and the convicted from committing further offences, rehabilitation of the criminal, etc. "An eye for an eye" is easy/simple, but that doesn't mean it's desirable for society.

Because that's just what they tell themselves and others to justify their "just world" worldview; so that they can look down on people that aren't as successful as them.

The next day when I came in, the head of maintenance called me in and just started laying into me. Bitching about me calling in too much, that they weren't paying me, and that I'd be fired if I did it again. Saying that I should be grateful that they moved me to late shift, so that I could go to college when my classes were available (while still paying me $7.50 per hour). I walked out right then and there. The next day I get a call begging me to come back to work, saying how much they valued my hard work and shit, saying that I got the wrong idea the day before.

>middle class

Why do Americans say "middle class" when they're referring to the working class? It is not middle-class to slave over a vat of hot oil. If you were to draw a graph of the American class system, it would be an enormous square marked "middle class" with a small line above it for "upper class". Though the upper class will deny being that. And if you graphed where the money was, it'd be the same graph upside-down.

Why do they do it? It makes no sense and is counter to every theory of socioeconomics everywhere. With no working-class, not only would nobody make anything (which is already the case) but you'd have nobody to sell anything to anyone. Everyone would just be administrating, or else running stupid fucking retreats where spoiled pussies of men go to beat on drums and pretend they're warriors in a tribe, when actually they'd be used as bait, and the first ones you eat if it comes down to cannibalism.

Makes no sense. Is it to do with the lie of aspiration, that anyone can be President? That anyone can be a millionaire (even though, statistically, it sure helps a shitload to be the child of a millionaire). So they pretend you're all in the same class, and in the "good" one at that?

It's very stupid, and kinda shameful so many people just swallow it unquestioningly. Justify it to me, Burgers.

No mate. Companies desire a large-ish population of unemployed. Because those people are in competition with the employed, ie their own staff. So they can tell their staff, when they demand better pay and conditions, to fuck off, there's a million people wanting their job. And they're right.

The only answer to this, is unions. Ideally honest ones, they don't have to be giant corrupt shitfactories. Perhaps start your own. Go round local restaurants, and QUIETLY (in capital letters) give out leaflets with "NO BOSSES" on them. You don't wanna be caught out as a truoblecauser! Not a team player! But then unionise. Perhaps ask an existing union to give you help or help you form as an adjunct, I dunno, not an expert on all this.

If all burger flippers have a decent union, then "one out, all out", as they say. You're no longer disposable and despicable. There arises a detente. They need you and you need them. So we can talk from an equal footing. Much better than being hopeless slaves. Companies fear unions. Especially the big companies you get in the USA. This is why they're so badmouthed in the media, and you only hear about the corruption, not the work they do for their members. And as far as "corruption" goes, don't companies have everyone beat? Pretty blatantly and shamelessly?

It's the same thing at my job with the fuck tons of applications, but the 1% of people who manage to qualify (for a job with literally no qualifications) end up flunking out after 3 months tops, and that's being generous. The last round of hires they did, one girl came to work on her second or third day too high to even function at the register and had to be sent home, then fired when she just stopped showing up after that, then begged for a second chance like a week later after they already fired her for disappearing. Another girl (who got hired because she's friends with one of the managers) came to work for like two weeks (in which she called out almost half of the days she was supposed to work) and then just stopped showing up without warning, fired. The only one who actually stuck it out was some fucking 16 year old girl who works like two days a week for maybe 14 hours since she's still in high school. A fucking child did better than all the adults we hired, and it means nothing because of how little she's able to work, meaning we're still understaffed.

A large corporation sure as hell won't value their bottom tier worker as much as a small company. They have an infinite supply of replaceable workforce. The only problem is that due to corporate consolidation, small companies cannot compete and most people can't just quit their corporate wageslaving to work for a small company (or start your own), no matter how much they'd prefer that.

That's why it would be nice if minimum wage were gradually replaced with a wage subsidy. It would help reverse corporate consolidation and the low end worker would get paid more than the small company can afford to pay him. It's unlikely to ever happen, but, it would be nice.

First of all, middle class has to do with money earned, and that's it. Middle class is currently categorized as making over $41000.00 per year. That comes out to $19.66 per hour with a 40 hour work week. According to this
https://money.usnews.com/money/personal-finance/family-finance/articles/where-do-i-fall-in-the-american-economic-class-system
51% of americans are lower class. It's how much you make, not what you do. If you somehow make a million bucks a year by digging ditches, you're still upper class. All of this varies throughout the states though. Where I'm from, if you're making 41k per year, you're doing great, and probably paid off your house and car, but in a lot of big cities, that's living paycheck to paycheck. A rough guide is, if you own a house, and can support a family, and have saving, and have a little blow money left over, then you're firmly middle class. If you can't do those things, you're lower class. If you have an excess that you hardly even know what to do with, that you throw at investments, and boats and shit, you're upper class. Get it?

I am, but I know of a few small businesses around here that do the same, or even worse. For example, my friend works for a guy who owns a lot of houses, and manages the workers that do all the upkeep. They're classified as contractors, so that he doesn't have to pay them minimum wage; even though they're obviously 1099 employees. My friend doesn't say anything, because he's actually paid well; and the guys in that position aren't saying anything, because they're all drug addicts that can't get a job elsewhere.

of course. with smaller companies though, you'll find some decent people, some cunts. the fewer small companies, the larger the corporations, the less choice you have in who you can work for, and a far higher the likelihood of working for cunts.

You'd make a lot if you get in early, and get out before it plummets. Even if you bought at 30 cents when my mom heard about it, and got out now; you'd have made almost double your investment. Sure, it can be risky; but there's such a high reward. It can't hurt to get in early, and only put in what you can lose. You might hit gold.
>>
>>63524907
It's not. But the thing is, a lot of the companies researching automation are doing it with tools that are set up to for one to able to see (literally) human behaviors, analyze and copy them, rather than just ones that follow simple assembly line instructions, in a time where that type of visual autonomy tech is brickwalling INSANELY badly (toyota cancelled their plans to look into driverless cars that's how hopeless that prospect it), and second of all the types of robots that build trucks are only semi autonomous and need sometimes even more expensive labor to manage than just a few untrained wagies. Which defeats the point of automating.
>>
>>63524910
Factually untrue. The people who go in early made money and everyone else lost. That's how these things work. You just have to always be ahead of the curve and you'll always be making money. With meme shit like crypto, if you spend enough time online in the right places, you can be early most of the time and make money off the backs of normies who hop on trends late.

You say this, and certainly someone in their company has done this, but knowing several SEVERAL CEO's (I work in small-business biotech development), the truth is, they are all idiot jocks with daddy money who more or less are like "why no money increase? MONEY INCREASE ONLY." And that's the extent of thinking. Good luck trying to explain "decrease profits temporarily to raise wages, get more workers, and overtake the market in a year, and then long-term end up with more profits"; these days, it's LITERALLY only about the next quarter profits. Bezos made bank because he refused to step away from the philosophy of long-term investment, even under pressure.

>There is no way to target inflation without killing the working man
Littrally all it would take is to stop govenement spending so fucking much and paying for it with inflation.
The amount of money printed off is on a scale never seen before in american history.
If they fucking stopped spending so fucking much and paying for it with money printing there would be minimal to no inflation.
Instead we are heading down the road to hyper inflation if we keep up at the rate we are going.

Fucking right. These shitty jobs and the corresponding wages have been unveiled as bullshit thanks to COVID. Corporations need to start raising wages on these shitty jobs.

These jobs should be adequately compensated for.

Businesses will cry, and pretend that they can't operate on a thinner profit margin, even though it was fine in the past (look at the WW2 corporate taxes).

>Not enough employees
>Overwork the ones you have
>Many have too much and quit while you're trying to hire on more employees
>Remaining employees even more overworked trying to train newbies and take up workload from missing employees
>They quit too while you're trying to hire on more employees
They're trapped in a negative feedback loops where they're overworking their current employees and suffering attrition while not recruiting fast enough to get back to even. This is exacerbated by employers being generally reluctant to add on more payroll unnecessarily (employees are generally permanent or long-term commitments) and being too cautious while their current employees are dying. Many management types also suffer from the delusion that their peons like working as much as they do: if they did they wouldn't be peons. They're not just going to put up with working overtime every week the way a manager would.

On the upside, if you're a NEET and you've always wanted to work for whatever reason, now's your chance. For the next few months, Boomer Dad will be 100% correct: just walk in, give the manager a firm handshake and ask him for the job. He'll make you fill in an app online but then he'll call you and give it to you. Boomer Dad will only be right for a few months though, so get in while you can.

Or don't, if you like being NEET better.

Society needs to incentivize people to do shit. You're thinking about it backwards. What's your incentive to work a full time job if you're still going to be a broke loser while you get to watch twitch streamers get donated what you make for a week of hard labor just sitting around talking to the chat for an hour? And that's just the tip of the iceberg. You know rich people are spending millions of dollars on designer trees now?

If unemployment is paying more than you're paid for honest hard labor by the billion dollar company that employs you, and gives the CEO a 400k bonus at the end of every year, why the fuck would you want to swallow your own balls and accept being a fucking slave? The rise in male virginity and female hypergamy is also a major part of this. You don't even actually need to make minimum wage to be a bottom tier piece of shit in this society. Let's assume you make more than double the minimum wage, MORE THAN DOUBLE. 15 dollars an hour, 40 hours a week. At that point if you manage to live alone at all, you're renting out a studio apartment or maybe one bedroom with just enough disposable income to buy some weed and maybe a video game once a month just to help you cope with how shitty your own fucking life is. Meanwhile every attractive girl in your age range is just given that amount of money by strangers on the internet just for existing and being born female. Already more attractive than you, already with more friends and support than you. And then has the audacity to look down on you as some sort of oppressor even though you're just the modern version of a serf.

To even START living a bare minimum, respectable life in this country, the floor is 20 dollars an hour. That should be the fucking floor. Yet neither party wants to even give us 15. This is a failed fucking state, and a failed system, and the propaganda has been running so deep for so many decades now that you have a legion of retard NPCs defending it.

Interesting that you say that. When minimum wage was first introduced, it was supposed to be a wage that you could live on. The original minimum wage, if it kept up with productivity and inflation, would be about $24 today. This is what President Franklin D. Roosevelt said about it at the time.
>"no business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to it's workers has any right to continue in this country"
>"By 'business' I mean the whole of commerce as well as the whole of industry; by workers I mean all workers, the white collar class as well as the men in overalls; and by living wages I mean more than a bare subsistence level - I mean the wages of decent living,"
But stupid fucking boomers, and retards will still try to tell you that it was never supposed to be a living wage.

It's about the ethnic nepotism at the core, not just the status of an individual jew. I bet most of those poor jews hold the same attitudes and would act exactly the same as powerful jews. It's none of their fault really, Judaism boils down to an ethno-religious minority survival strategy that excels at the expense of the majority. It's not personal it's systemic.

They're probably showing off that they're working full hours. Most wagies are only allowed to work around 30 hours per week, so that their employers don't have to pay for benefits. These wagies feel rich, and they're rubbing in their success to the other wagies.
