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.

Hmm it's good to set boundaries for your kids en give them a sense of responsibility. But not in the way you are proposing mr Coach-dad wich sons and daughters are probably real sad en feel no self worth because you give them the feeling they are never good enough for your approval.

It's saying that it's tax refund season and people use that buffer to peace out. McD warns that cash won't last forever so stick with the job.

Hmmm...high turnover of staff, probably 'walk outs' en masse too. Maybe they should address the reason behind that instead of pointing out the difficulties of leaving..

So, in parsing the note, apparently this McDonald's location has had more than a few employees quit after their tax refunds have come in, and the franchise owners must be tired of constantly looking for new employees. But who gets a huge tax refund from working at McDonald's, unless it's a manager claiming 0 exemptions and is making more that $60K? Who thinks a tax refund on a McDonald's crew person's wage will last more than 2-3 weeks if they quit? And if you quit a job, you don't get unemployment, either, at least not in the US. If there are enough people who've worked for that location that have quit because of "huge tax refunds", I would like to know what other job those people got!

These jobs don’t make careers. People can drop them at will because such businesses don’t give you a path forward. You work the abusive job when you need to, quit when you’re sick of it and have the funds to try something else, and then get another job at another shitty hellhole when that doesn’t work out. There is an endless supply of people forced to work, so the only problem for the business is a greedy corporate mindset, and a lazy manager, where they think employees ought to be consistent and reliable when the job itself isn’t doing shit for them to live.

Well,, at least on paper it says, that the employees are important. And here in Germany, McD seems to be a good company to work for, if you can put up with the stresss of the job.

Honestly not the worst bit of advice when dealing with hot-headed teen employees. “Please come see me and we can talk it through” is a lot better than “I’m not here to babysit you, grow up or go home” (Although the conversation could end that way, lol. At least they tried.)

I can’t read it but I assume it’s a litany of FUD, trying to terrorize employees into feeling they have no choice but to keep subjecting themselves to abuse and wage slave misery.

Are you serious? So if they use the tax refund as a bridge to find better employment you'll chastise them? A lot of people do that (or start looking when the refunds come in, if they still get them)

A very nice convenience store manager encountered a similar tax-related issue: People wanting to work only part of the year. They would work enough months to max out their allowable Earned Income Credit, file taxes, quit to enjoy the huge tax refunds (not uncommon to be in excess of $10,000, very close to what the employee actually EARNED with a number of children/deductions) then do it all over again. The other employee retention problem he encounters is those who will work for a couple of weeks in order to renew their food stamp eligibility (verified only every 6-18 month) then quit. All the poor man wanted were good employees not looking for a way to take advantage of the system. When he paid a higher wage, they would reach that max allowed and quit sooner so even that wasn't an option.

I've never heard of anyone getting $10K refund, as in ever, unless they have a ridiculous amount of kids (like maybe 5, but definitely at least 6) ** Work as tax preparer during tax season **
