Remember when every TV pundit suddenly realized nurses, bus drivers, postmen, delivery people and janitors were "essential workers"?
Now, the same imbeciles are noticing that cooks, servers, truck drivers and others are also "essential workers". And that life without restaurants or opened shops really suck.
Soon, the very same idiots may well realize that moving entire industries to China and having just-in-time supply chains because $PROFITS is not such a good idea.
@ParadeGrotesque the upper %10 are already taxed a lot. It’s the lower end that doesn’t pay its fair share. Raising minimum wage does nothing, the cost of living will just increase. We’ve already seen this play out. This is a fool’s narrative.
The numbers about upper-upper-class taxation and Gini Coeff worldwide strongly disagree with you.
Raising the min wage may lead to inflation, but inflation is easier to bring down than getting out of a deflation spiral.
@ParadeGrotesque I may be a bit pessimistic, but I think that your prediction may be a bit optimistic.
