We can choose our own masters, but we are not free to quit wage slavery.
What does ‘賃金奴隷‘ mean? Well it’s a Japanese word for ‘wage slave’.
lmao, since you’re here, can I get you anything? Some gum, maybe water, how about some not-sound and definitely not valid investment advice?
What I’m trying to say is,
Alright, well, back to the main topic of business,
So I’ve been digging through Japanese Work Culture for no reason at all, and found out that it was a little fucked. Like the rest of the world, but Japan also has great words, like wage slave.
I like to think they’re not too different from us in that respect. I mean, take a look at these recently made up terms in the English lexicon;
Wage Cuck = Wage slave = Employees
Task Master = Prettier paid prideful wage slave = boss or managers
Wage Cage = The mines = Work place
Getting fucked = Extra work
All of these great endearing terms to help show how high the morale in your company is. Yup, your [Task Master] will definitely appreciate you using more inclusive workplace nouns and verbs because the Politically correct way of living life is sugar coating things, and by sugar, I mean shit.
So what is wage slavery?
Think of it like Debt slavery, but your debt is newly accruing like a revolving (line of credit) door.
You see, you got bills, that include rent, insurance, other scams, and worst of all, food. All of these things cost money, and savings rates is a scam, so no one has money to comfortably live without work. In fact, most people live pay check to paycheck.
So everyone is trying to survive, while they can’t because *Waves at everything in a 360 Degree radius* I mean, really;
You’ve got rent seeking economy, interest rates set by the fed boys which makes saving money a scam, Quantitative easy money printer going BRRRR, and evil manipulative hedge funds destroying innovative businesses and overall welfare and quality of life to boot.
Here’s another way to look at it.
If you have monthly bills that total, say, $2,000 a month total. Then let’s multiply that by 12 months, for one year. That means you would pay a projected $24,000 a year.
Good, now that you know that, go ahead and start January 1st knowing that you owe $24,000 in debt. Even though they haven’t charged your account, that doesn’t mean you’re not going to pay. That also doesn’t include gas, medical, insurance, insurance for insurance, lawyers to fight the insurance squared, and groceries.
So essentially all the hidden fees and taxes are billed to you, but they make you pay in monthly installments so you don’t see that you’re being energetically drained to becoming a sharecropped slave.
You’re a slave hun. News. Flash.
“wage workers are constantly forced to choose between wage labor and starvation, a situation no different from slavery.”
Yea, all of this when the only objective is to survive on this planet;
It’s a fulfilling life. By fulfilling, I mean full of shit;
I’m not sure where I was going with this, lmao.
Uh, Work-retire-and-die life is a scam. So you gotta start finding ways to minimize consumption, maximize production, cut costs, and generate value and returns. Grow your own food, collect rainwater legally because apparently some cunts made collecting rain water illegal.
Start taking chances, start a business, start five, fuck it. Learn sewing, crochet, learn to book mutha fuckers. Use your new found skills for good, or something.
I’m not against Capitalism as long as the wages are fair and the taxes are duty free. It’s just, well, society is a bit fucked, so you might as well start bootlegging in the 1920s.
If you fail at making a business, you just join the work force.
If you can’t work, then you become free homeless.
Maybe it’s better? Idk.
Live more, get in touch with the part of you that lives instead of fears.
I’m merely adding that as a happy sounding ending, because let’s be honest, this entire shit post was pretty doomerism. Hopefully though, it wakes you the fuck up.
