People are sick of everything, and realizing it's pointless to work a dead end job at salve wages... for what? Just to get by so someone else can get stupid filthy rich off your labor?
I worked since 15, worked for the same company for the last 12 years. No college, no degrees, no back up plan etc.... I made between 55 to 70K a year. I worked every weekend, every holiday, 6 days a week and between 60 to 80 hours a week. I sacrificed my personal life to get ahead, to buy my home, cars, a rental property etc..... My credit was great, and I was living the dream.... or so I thought.
Now at 31, I'm unemployed, my savings are gone, I had to file bankruptcy, my house and rental property are in foreclosure. Everything I've ever worked for is going down the toilet.
My taxes and mortgage are so high even if I saved every dollar unemployment gave me I wouldn't be able to pay my bills.
The jobs I am able to find pay less then what unemployment pays.
At this point, where is my motivation to work? I like many others just don't give a sh*t anymore. All I see is filthy rich and dirt poor. And I don't believe I'm gonna be filthy rich anytime soon. The future looks grim-
Yeah and we can all just go out and get slave wage jobs and live 3 families to an apartment. I hope more people wake up. Times are changing, the jobs are not coming back. New tech and new manufacturing methods are making the need for human workers obsolete.
While these giant mega corporations streamline ever increasing profits- the rest of us are left by the sideline with nothing. Everything is happening by plan, the people in power want more for themselves and less for everyone else. The rich view the rest of us as a sub-species. We are filth in their eyes.
I'm done being exploited by others people solely for their gain, and to be left with nothing- not even able to reap the rewards of my own labor. Cause they'll take that as well.
I say right on! More people need to quit their job. More people need to say enough is enough. We need to change the way our entire society works.
