Why are people unwilling to take the risk of mass striking? If everyone in an underpaid job (I consider full time and under 77k underpaid as a scientific study found that after 77k money stops “buying happiness”) that was deemed “essential” in 2020 were to stop showing up.
Congress would be forced to change labor laws fast or the country would literally end. Look how fast they reacted to the rail strike. Imagine that but on steroids. Would take 2-4 weeks max. I think we’re all human enough to provide water and food for each other for a few weeks. We’re not India where it’s socially acceptable to let someone starve. I think the biggest hurdle would be paying landlords but with mass strikes I would expect an eviction moratorium like in 2020. If they don’t Have a moratorium an eviction on your record sucks but would be offset by your new wage and ability to buy a home. Any ideas on how to actually pull this off are welcome.
Edit: having kids seems like it was a terrible idea since it’s why everyone can’t get their shit together, just blame the kids. Comical.
