Day in the life of a regime employee

You could also tighten up border control and migrant labor so corporations would have to pay Americans $20/hr to pick fruit and shovel out drainage ditches as they probably should be earning if wages weren't suppressed in a way that only benefits those corporations.

Those people could then buy a small 800 sq ft home, an affordable American car, be able to have the wife stay at home to care for the children while doing small community work for a pittance of extra income, afford to take vacations, and pay for schooling. You know, like in the 1950s.

These are the people that told laid off factory workers "learn to code." I've watched my blue collar cousins and uncles work their whole lives, only to be belittled by this arrogant crowd and have their wages undercut by interlopers that will retire home in Mexico once they hit enough cash or social security. I don't wish these daycare adults harm, but they won't find much pity from me when they get let go. Learn to bend steel.
 
As a counterargument, if you were doing a ton of work, why would you put that in your tiktok day in the life? You would just gloss over it the same way these people glossed over it because no one wants to listen about you doing work.
 
Because it makes you look good.
It's low status to do a bunch of boring work. It's high status to have a cushy job. Most people I know who do boring work in a cushy job(supposedly- I wouldn't know what work they actually do) talk about their lifestyle or cushy job on social media. They do not talk about the work they do unless they are into the "hustle culture" stuff, then they say generic platitudes about working hard. And honestly no one outside their field would care.

Which is in the context. You want your employers to think you're valuable, not to advertise to them how little you are.

I guess the target audience is to random people on the internet/friends/audience that don't work for the company to know what it's like or to show off. If the employer approves of the video(or is like astroturfing for PR), then boring work would just make the employer look bad. If not, then I guess it's a mistake to make yourself look like a slacker, but you weren't making the video to show the employer anyway.

There are real jobs that need to be done at Twitter, but those guys are so busy they usually don't have time to do tiktok vids about it.
This thread describes things the engineers worry about every day - putting out various fires. I've seen a few of these at a large enterprise, and even the best run shops will have them occur:


So much of the dead wood that's being cut amount to a middle management jobs program that never should have existed.

They stopped teaching us about Caesar Chavez for a reason. Once labor was thrown out in favor of sexual liberation (per the informal deal pushed by people like Michel Foucault), the downward moral spiral had no other avenue but accelerated decline - what would stop it?

I heard a podcast a few weeks ago where some hedge fund types were talking about how to get the economy back on track. One of them said "we need to find new sources of cheap labor..." Taken to its logical extreme, the cheapest source of labor is ultimately slavery. Arguably, that's already happening in some of the third world nations producing the materials for the toys we all enjoy in the first world. But if cheap foreign labor ran out, they'll just make it cheaper here - slavery is where they'd take us all if it meant making the extra buck. Numb it with legal weed, porno and whatever else kills the spirit and they may get a decade or two of compliance before the wheels fall off.

The past few years, I've come to understand that America was never really a Christian country. Founded by post - Enlightenment era protestant men who put economics ahead of their religion, it was at its heart and still is, a Jewish country. This is what EMJ refers to when he considers protestant variations to be "Judaized," and I don't say this to offend my protestant cousins. Given the founding, the subsequent quashing of Catholic influence, and the eventual changing of the guard from old line Episcopalians to the Jews, this trend continues today. Nothing forming in the wake of these cultural shifts should surprise anyone. Labor will continue to get shorted by finance.

These useless tech people are all getting laid off. My first corporate job early 90s, my dad told me that if I am going to get a cup of coffee, to carry a clipboard so it looks like I have a purpose. (It worked)
Today these people flexing about doing nothing didn't see that the gravy train is over... About 90k laid off this month and more to come.

The Regime will take the hammer to Blue for the next couple of years. They need Red to wage war on China.

Doesn't take a genius to see where this is headed...

This will have cascading effects. All of the people with make-work jobs who bought houses at insanely inflated prices are screwed. Most of them are concentrated in urban centers which saw the biggest housing bubbles, and will be due for the biggest corrections in turn.

Notice how she says they went to a “black-owned restaurant” for lunch. Not a restaurant, a black-owned one! Choosing a black-owned restaurant is almost a parallel preference to companies choosing minority and/or female job candidates over white and/or male ones in STEM.

I don’t know this woman’s job title or effectiveness as an employee but her race and gender give her the Golden Ticket in most companies (hopefully not for Twitter if Elon runs it right from now on).

I imagine a situation where it is close to impossible to fire certain individuals in Silicon Valley because they are “underrepresented”, whatever that means.

I also imagine a situation where people with the same job title do levels of work based on what category they belong to, as the person in the protected categor(y/ies) can do less without fear of being terminated.
