You’ve got a couple options when it comes to turning a profit:
- Underpay workers
- Overvalue the product
Modern capitalism does both (alongside a subset of the middle class that gets dramatically overpaid, such as programmers, and gratuitous expenditures such as salary bonuses). Whichever way you slice it, though, you get inflation and increasing inequality.
Yep! Once “everyone can code,” owners can finally do what they’ve always wanted to do: underpay programmers. https://switter.at/web/statuses/101868999452217767
(Your rage is impotent because you don’t possess any capital. If you did, you probably wouldn’t spend your time bitching at me of all people on social media)
@amydentata this is probably my favorite irony of capitalism, like pretty much all of its supporters are people it definitely doesn't care about at all
