If she can talk that means she isn't sucking enough
@DeathSaint TBH it's not clear as written, whether the bulk of the post is complaining against the 4/10 concept or a new undefined 4/even-less one. My point is, despite the loftiest of ideas and intentions whether strongly biased pro-employee or pro-some-ideology, it becomes the bottom-up collective demands of individual consumers that is the form around which the actual day to day function of a business emerges. This describes the B2C model but the concept still holds true in B2B and "One client and it's Government contract work" model enterprises.
@DeathSaint 4/10 workweeks are not a new or experimental thing at all. A lot of workers will take that option if it is made available, but its less popular with employers.
When I opened my car repair business I thought I'd close every other Monday and be open Saturday those weeks instead, for the sake of clients with work logistics issues. In practice I NEVER closed on a Monday due to demand, and Saturdays always turned into an unprofitable shitshow of people on their day off losing the concept of work-mode and other people existing, where I'd lose a ridiculous percentage of the day politely explaining that I can't just help them immediately when they drive up even if they do cotton to the concept of setting an appointment. Starting up your own business is 6/12 enough as it is. Settled on a 5 day week strictly M-F even as my own boss. If you'll only patronize a mechanic who is open Saturday AND then for waiters... you are Not My Customer.
Side rant over... bottom line 4/10 workweeks aren't some new dystopian fuck the working class over even worse program employers are forcing on unwilling job seekers. They're an option that was developed out and matured nicely long ago, that tend to favor workers and their QOL over the staffing and fiscal needs of many business types.Read More
On the next episode of "Fucked up things to come" this whole affair of the 4-day work week stinks like hell. It is getting more and more traction on mainstream media which honestly is a worrying trend this days.
To make a preface, this idea came from the nordic countries I think, where it made people more efficient at work while simultaneously more happy with their lives (big fucking surprise). The way to incorporate it is not the classic 4 days 10 hours where you would complete the 40 hours quota, but instead you are working less for the same pay.
In general, it just feels a bit too good to be true. It sounds far-fetched for this to be the agenda Big-Whatever has in store for society which makes me wonder what it can be tied to.
The easy inference would be paving the way for ai and technology to take a more integral part in everyday activities which can lead to a potentially huge layoff. A dystopia where the majority of people are 100% dependent on handouts to live perhaps? Even that feels like a stretch, mainly because giving people too much free time and nothing to do isn't on the globohomo style.
I still need to apply more of RPS' triple faggot lenses on this idea. But hey, maybe its not that deep and we are heading to a better society!Read More
@DeathSaint I can't help but to imagine that this petty indulgent 6 week Depp vs Heard trial plays into this. I'm just waiting for Heard to somehow come onto the scene in a large way regarding Musk (whom has been massively prominent these days). Possibly regarding Musk and her baby that is reported to have been birthed via a surrogate mother. I'm feeling like that as economic shit breaks loose that the relationship drama is about to continue on a completely bizarro scitzo scale.
Basically Musk is some degree of a genius, but more importantly he is the largest front man for the US military and all of the privatized technology that has been offloaded from the secret (but technically publicly owned) governmental institutions.
I don't quiet get it, but this crazy Heard bitch has a lot more power and backing than it would seem. To what end? It's back channel control of important people?
TPTB just fucking LOVE actors these days. Zelenski, Trudeau, etc.Read More
@TiberiusBravo87 And for further context,the same day the friend of one of Elon's secretaries says he pulled out his little weenie in front of her, and was forced to pay 250 grand to keep her quiet when she refused or whatever.
In my mind, this whole shit stinks (nice pun if I may say so myself). Combined with the proposition to cut down on Google' ads revenue, it's making me think behind the scenes we are having a clash between Big Tech and whoever is behind whatever politician.
The future is definitely linked with technology,probably we are heading into some sort of virtual reality developments where Big Tech will have the say. It doesn't sound far-fetched for them to want to extend their influence further hence these clashes.
