We have got to start treating people better, but that ship may have already sailed. Perhaps we’re in a position where business owners have saved so much money on employees for so long that now they need to spend money to figure out how to do work with fewer people.
While the government touts a “strong economy” based on the wealthy becoming wealthier, it seems to be that the economy is unable to even support traditional workers. Companies are becoming better at finding ways to take money from the working class, and increasing their profit as they do, and in return making for a stronger stock market, but eventually, this points to economic disaster.
The problem is that the current direction of our economy is not sustainable, and is driven by a greedy few. Add all of this up, and we have dangerous days ahead of us.
