This is why you people will never own the means of production. You will forever be an employee. Selling your services to the highest bidder.

This is my situation. I get paid based on a 40-50 hour work week. Reality is, it only really takes me 20 real work hours per week to get my job done.

In other news, formally submitted my tax return. Minimized some state taxes owed through deductions n shit. In any case, I set the withdrawal date of my owed amount to April 10th. Fuckers can wait to get my money. angry.gif

If I remember my economics 101 correctly, legal settlements are transfer payments, which do not get counted in GDP. There is no value creation.

Regarding "the means of production," what are you trying to say? Any asshat can buy stock in a company.

Who cares how you build your wealth? Do something you're good at without fucking people over and it's fine with me.

You're required to do 8 hours, but if you're there for only 8 hours trust me you ain't getting your shit done.

Legal settlements may be transfers, but what about legal fees?

Too bad there are no offsetting benefits related to working at large companies. There aren't any, right?

That's not what I said.

You still at work? You sound cranky.

How does a company offset the theft of your life?
