Yep this is true. No one can earn a billion dollars by working, but you can earn a billion dollars by making money off of other people

The Inhumans of Late Capitalism page (not to be confused with the Humans of Late Capitalism social media accounts which is a similar but entirely different horse entirely) has over 178.6k followers, all eagerly waiting for the next juicy post making fun of our dystopian everyday lives.

As many of you have probably realized by now, capitalism is far from a perfect system. But what’s the alternative? Does one even exist? Anyone who’s ever opened up a history book knows that communism isn’t an alternative—it’s just a more brutal dystopia that resulted in the deaths of millions of people. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

However, things might not be as grim nowadays as we think. For instance, Paul Mason writes in The Guardian that we might be entering the postcapitalist era without even noticing it. The forces driving this are information technology, the rise of the sharing economy, and new ways of working. Mason’s point of view is refreshing because he paints a bright and sunny picture of the future, instead of one where we’re all doomed and fighting global warming, zombies, and the plague on all fronts.

The only appropriate response to this is a letter of resignation.

According to Mason, information technology has reduced the need for work, blurred the “edges between work and free time,” and “loosened the relationship between work and wages.” The amount we have to work will further diminish as automation increases. But that’ll still take a while because our way of thinking has yet to catch up with the power of robotics.

Mason also states that we’re “seeing the spontaneous rise of collaborative production: goods, services, and organizations are appearing that no longer respond to the dictates of the market and the managerial hierarchy. The biggest information product in the world—Wikipedia—is made by volunteers for free, abolishing the encyclopedia business and depriving the advertising industry of an estimated $3bn a year in revenue.”

In other words, we’re seeing various new forms of work, ownership, and businesses that will (in the long run) change our society as we know it. But whether or not it’ll be a postcapitalist society or something else entirely, we’ll find out in a few decades.

That's just there to make it easier to kick out homeless people and kids. If you are eating and you go over the limit they probably won't bother you.

There was a story I believe on here where someone at a mcds did just that to an elderly couple that had been going there for years. It backfired when the local news got involved. I'm surprised they actually post a sign saying it. Makes me glad mcds is one of the fast food places my wife and I abandoned a few years ago.

On one hand, since I’ve been in restaurants where some people just hang out, noisily, I can understand the motivation. On the other hand, fast food places historically colored their restaurant interiors with colors determined in psychological studies to irritate people. The intention was to make sure people eat and get OUT! When fast food started to get a negative cultural impression, they all changed their interiors to make them seem more “homey”. They don’t care about anything but profit and Wall Street share prices. This sign presents the policy in a less than friendly manner, and we are generally savvy enough a society to see the coldness and irony in this whole sign taken as one.

This is a sign I've seen a lot, not just at McDonald's, since I've managed small restaurants in a bigger city.. it's indeed intended for homeless customers only because their demeanor and scent often make others uncomfortable and hinder their experience. It's usually the closing manager (the low paid supervisors) who have to uncomfortably ask them to leave, which sometimes leads to needing to call the police when they don't. No one in the establishment enjoys these experiences...

That wouldn't work in small towns. McD's is often the morning meeting place for the retirees and veterans.

I think this is meant for homeless people who just use the restroom and linger around in the dining area, making kids and others uncomfortable. At least that's my guess. Sad in every way.

But many restaurants do have time slots. Even fancy places. You book a table and you have 1 hour or so to eat, then it's reserved for other people.

It's even worse in sit-down restaurants. They want you to hurryupandleave so they can seat new customers. I have actually been asked to leave because it is "the lunch rush."

Obviously indicates a local issue, likely one that's causing problems for legitimate customers. Might also be security related. Some of these stores exist in high crime areas.

Never seen that once. My daughter works for McDonald's, and they often have regulars that come in for hours on end. They're friendly with the staff and have established a good relationship with those customers; this sign is a good way to kill that.

Fun fact! McDs used to have benches that were designed to be uncomfortable of sat in for too long. They were slanted at a perfect angle to make your legs fall asleep, and just hard enough to get uncomfortable after a while. They replaced them about 10 years ago.
