Oh hey would you look at that!
The government gave us the oh so generous favor of taking away unemployment benefits for 8 million Americans, on Labor Day no less.
What a kick in the face, ya know?
Telling us to get back to work ON Labor Day. Sheesh.
Comes at no surprise though, really. After all, Labor Day was originally sort of putting rose petals on a pile of shit.
President Cleveland approved it as a national holiday within 24 hours of ordering troops to slaughter thousands of labor protestors. Yeah, don't hear about that in the American history classes, do ya?
Anyway, it's one more move in this ongoing class war to try and get us "freeloaders" back to work, kind of like rounding the slaves back to the plantation.
You want us back at work? Pay us more money. Simple solution.
In the mean time, we'll continue procrastinating and being lazy. We're done with the corporate bullshit.
Look, there ain't any "labor shortage" or whatever. There's a shortage of billionaires willing to share their wealth. That's the real shortage in this country.
People are willing to work. What they're not willing to do is be compensated with shit wages.
People are literally walking out of low wage jobs mid-shift. They're embracing their laziness. They're seeing the value in minimizing effort and maximizing results.
They see with these low wage jobs that the effort just ain't worth it, man, especially when the government can hand them an unemployment check that exceeds what they're making schlepping 9 to 5.
The money's there. It's just not being shared.
