    This makes me so angry I find it difficult to articulate a response

    There should be laws against this—it should be a legal impossibility for a company to make that much money and still fire anyone as a cost-saving measure.

    The relationship between publically traded corporations and their investors can't be like this, where fiscal fealty justifies the obliteration of human lives in favor of making a number go up in the portfolio of people with no real investment in the well-being of...man I'm not even firing on all cylinders about this

    Unionize, yes, but unionization can't be the end either. The entire system has to have a hatchet taken to it

    Unionising is an important step, but honestly this should be an actual, literal crime that executives go to prison for. This is beyond market solutions.

    You cshould be able to make a case for embezzlement; with executives taking away labor costs from the company (and the associated revenue generated from said labor), and enriching themselves.

    Oh but they do that every day

    It's like they are thieving... Wages?

    We call that embezzlement.

    or capitalism!

    If theres anything we learned from the midterms it's that we cannot get ahead of ourselves though

    A large section of "progressive" politicians will stumble over their own asses and dicks and balls to undercut any positive change made to the status quo as upheld by the two party system

    We need to tear it down brick by fucking brick instead of focusing on the whole wall

    Yeah the whole thing about “the system is broken”...

    The system is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do.

    The system is evil and wrong and it is a perfectly functional engine of intentional suffering.
