I don't know if I'm going about starting this new thread properly or placing it under the correct topic so bare with me, it's my first one.
I've been poking around here for a month or so and haven't read even close to a 100th of everything but I had an idea that's highly highly
unfeasible and likely could never be accomplished. Here it is.
What if every blue-collar type working stiff in the world went on strike for a month? Janitors, construction workers, line-cooks, paper boys (and
girls) gas station attendants, field hands, butchers, ranchers, farmers, taxi drivers, truck drivers, railroad workers, garbage collectors, etc. etc.
etc. the list goes on and on. What if everybody on the same day decided not to go to work for a month? Heck even just a week. What kind of changes
would we see? What positives? What negatives? I realize that the vast majority of these people, myself included, are barely just scraping by and of
course it's far worse for people in "third world" countries, i.e. India, most of the African and South American continents etc. Still, wouldn't
it make a fascinating world wide social experiment that could possibly put the power back in the hands of the true majority, the powerless, used and
abused 6 billion people of this planet?
I dunno, just a thought I had that I'm sure has been brought up before.
Oh and if I posted this in the wrong forum, my apologies and please move it the correct one.
