Fast Food, Food, and Fucking: Existential Comics @existentialcoms Follow When you blame a poor person for not getting a better job, you accept that while their job is necessary, whoever does it should be poor. RETWEETS LIKES 2,129 3,183 9:22 AM - 21 Apr 2017 342.1K 3.2K mswyrr: mysharona1987: Like, you want janitors and McDonald fast food workers and cleaners. You just don’t want them to make a liveable wage and have healthcare and be treated like proper human beings.   ultimately the people at the top want to replace them with machines. factory jobs have been lost to automation as well as companies moving abroad. they’re trying to get rid of truck drivers and other people who drive people/goods around. they want to replace employees at McDonalds. there’s serious articles about it and also “cute” articles about delivery robots and I think: that’s a working class job gone. one that was already fucking pathetic bc of how unfairly people who drive delivery are treated. but soon (within 5-10 years?) those jobs will just be gone. and idk what people are supposed to do at that point… just be “polite” and shuffle off and die in a corner somewhere because there’s simply not enough higher status/paying jobs to go around and they never had the educational or other opportunities to even compete for those jobs anyway? i suppose plumbers and electricians and some forms of maintenance will be necessary for a few decades until AI can think as creatively as humans but at some point we have to decide whether human lives have inherent worth apart from their worth under capitalism. and we, in the US, do not currently live in a society that believes they do.

Cars, College, and Community: October 19 at 11:11ame In highschool I wonder why they pushed college on us so hard instead of trades? They didn't tell me union plumbers can make $1,600 a week with no OT and NO DEGREE....or that truck drivers can make 6 bands a week if they buy their own truck w/NO DEGREE? OR that traveling welders can make 100k a year with NO DEGREE.they made it seem like college was the only way to be successful Like Comment Share nd 352 others 495 Shares I'm a weld Inspector, traveling inspectors can make 6 figures easy Oct 19 at 11:14am Love 2 Reply Delete plied- 3 replies That's awesome bro I'm a truck driver and we can make 6 figures as well with the right company. I just wonder why they ain't tell me about this shit in highschool.

Their entire platform is around the government taking care of you. </p><p>“You should do what you want. If that’s feminist dance study so be it. Oh you can’t take care of your family now? Proof we need more government. ”</p><p>There are over 6 million open jobs right now in this country. Two-thirds of jobs in this country don’t require any sort of degree. </p><p>This is where left is usually respond with “but automation” as proof that there’s not going to be any jobs. </p><p>That’s exactly what they said when cars and were invented in horse carriage and farming was changed.</p><p>That’s what they said when computers replace most office workers.</p><p>We have more jobs now with more technology and more automation. They’re just different jobs. </p></blockquote> <p>They obviously pushed it to funnel more money into the money pit that is student loans. I need a degree for the things I want to do, but I wish I had gone about it a different way. Right now my sister is taking part high school classes and part cosmetology classes at a community college. By the time she goes to a “real college” she should be able to go as a junior and save tons of money. Kids if you’re still in high school listen to me: don’t let anybody tell you you absolutely have to go to a four-year school you can’t afford just to be successful. Don’t let anybody talk you into taking out $50,000+ in loans that you’ll never be able to pay back. Consider your options, look at community college offerings and dual enrollment and online credits. We have more ways than ever to get a well-rounded education and qualifications for the things we need to do.</p>
