Yes, we live among you. Impostors, if you like.


Is wrk the opposite or r9k?


Idk. I browse leftychan and 4chan /r9k/ at work. I'm sure NEETs are overrepresented on those boards but I have seen anons on the 4chan board post proof of earning six figure salaries. Being able to bullshit your way through an interview and having a job doesn't mean you can get sex.


I ment to say of r9l* but sure lol

Why the fuck do we have a society that has rationalized and normalized the idea of working grave yard shifts? Literally no human on earth is biologically designed for this shit.

It doesn't make any damn sense what so ever.

Just sleep during your shift after everyone leaves lmao


I work on an assembly line.


The answer is literally in Capital Volumn 1. Any time that the means of production are not actively being used they are losing value. Thus, it behooves the ruling class to keep them producing as close to constantly as possible. When extending workers hours stopped being practical, shift work become a necessity.

Sup, I have a buddy of mine that works with me.
We used to work at this shitty restaurant where we were extremely underpaid, etc etc. You know how that goes.
Anyway, we both ended up getting an extremely good well paying job. Now the company prides itself on its outstanding quality and god labor practices, but, I have been doing really well and excelling and my buddy is not doing so well. we got trained on different shifts. My shift worked really hard to get me where I needed to be as a group and as a unit. I had to change teams I was on several times because of issues with the management but now I am where I need to be and doing well. We are now on the same shift and he is getting trained on this shift. This shift has extremely high production quotas some times 3 or 4x higher than the other shifts and they are all assholes. The guy teaching him is being a prick too and yelling at him, etc etc etc. Well he got a little sick of it today and went and talked to the shift manager and he asked to changed to a different team where he wouldn't be getting constantly yelled at.
Basically the manager told him to fuck himself and that he isn't changing teams. He also told him "yeah we almost canned a guy today" (my friend is unsure if this was a tacit lowkey admission that they are thinking of firing him.) Well, I know from my experience with the shift I got trained on that sounds like a bullshit approach and it sounds like they are not giving him the necessary attention to have him excel at this job. Which isn't easy, btw. He has a family and he is trying really hard to keep his job but he doesn't know what to do.
He asked me for advice and said he was thinking of going above our shift manager and going to his boss or HR. Obviously, I told him I would. I don't like to let them push me around, but, he is worried about it. He doesn't want to loose this job and go back to washing fucking dishes and a restaurant.
I told him if I was him I would wait a week and take he training I could get from the asshole team lead and ignore him being a prick and see how he feels in a week or so. but he retorted with "well I am scared they are going to look for a reason to fire me which makes me want to go to HR first"
I gave him my advice and I don't know what to think of it. What do you guys think? Seriously in need of advice here for my buddy. He's a good dude who is honestly to god for this shitty world and he's just trying to make a living for his family.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



Assuming the goal is to simply to get the trainer to quit being an asshole, the best route might be to compliment and validate him.

In short, it's extremely hard to treat someone like shit when they are complimenting you. A sort of tactical surrender often lulls bullies, who find less amusement when their victim isn't resisting, fighting back, or getting upset.

'Youre right, I wish I had the skills you had, how can I do better' (said somewhat genuinely) can be quite disarming to an overbearing bully.

If you want to get the guy fired, it would probably be best to document to abuse and take it to HR. That may get the guy fired, but it might not actually help your friend in the company, who might be seen by other trainers/managers as a snitch.

Look, the thinis, yeah, the team lead is an asshle but he doesn't have the power to fire people…he isn't THAT BAD outside of work.

Who i'm really worried about is his boss the guy my buddy 3went to. I have full cinfidence my friend could do the job he just needs people like I had who were willing to put in the time and patients to train him.

That's good advice though. I'll deff pass that down. Thanks anon.

Work from home email jobs like this are bullshit and seeing them is all the evidence I need to decide that the economy is deeply flawed and will shortly collapse in on itself. This isn't just me being a commie either, you can have relatively productive economies under laissez-faire capitalism, but 2022 America doesn't fit this category at all.

You see, people with these types of jobs like to kid themselves by saying: "haha I spend 90% of my "work" time scrolling through facebook and procrastinating, the schmuck who owns this company sure would be so mad if he found out!". The thing is, they know. They simply don't care. I just can't fully understand why they don't care. Is porky just trying to carry on as normal in the hope that things will blow over, burying his head in the sand as markets begin to collapse in on themselves? It makes no sense to me which is why it's so frightening.

These girls obviously don't know any better, and I am admittedly somewhat jealous of them as a manual labourer, but once all the people in these ridiculous jobs get made redundant I do wonder what will happen to them. Even the gig economy, including onlyfans, is drying up as people have less disposable income and fuel prices are skyrocketing so no Uber.
What I'm saying is, I feel like this upcoming recession will be very different bros, I can feel it in my stomach. Is anyone else getting this same feeling of impending doom?

What these retarded normies don't understand is that with out productive labor out put "creating value ala things of utility) in the economy of course the economy will collapse in on itself. You can't survive on speculation and air. Normies think money runs the world, but, ofc, the truth is that labor and the creation of useful commodities makes the world go.

The coof virus only exacerbated this and accelerated it; this already underlying existing issue because Americas productive output has been on the decline for decades, The chickens are coming home to roost I am afraid, though.


I don't understand what a product manager does, from the video they seem to be reading information-output on a computer screen and then they input information back into the computer based on that. Some capitalists are probably trying to use that information to train an artificial neural network, and replace them with a bot.

On the other side of that equation is that if all the people work in a digital office, you don't need capitalist owners anymore. Because there is no more capital involved.

The Bullshit jobs might be about ideological control.

>you can have relatively productive economies under laissez-faire capitalism, but 2022 America doesn't fit this category at all.

No you are extremely wrong about that. You have been tricked by ruling ideology.
Capitalism does not prefer productive labor if you let capitalists do as they please, under the neo-liberal doctrine, productive labour = everything in the private sector. unproductive labour = everything in the public sector, regardless what the activity is.

The way Marxists qualify productive labor, as something that generates persistent wealth that can be accumulated by society is not how capitalists see it. The big bourgeoisie want this shit economy, they want to have a big unproductive service sector that tends to their needs, they want luxuries for them self, they want too much military spending to attack their rivals, and from their perspective the current system isn't broken, they get what they want from it. They don't care that, luxury yachts/cars/mansions are unproductive, that financial services hiding their assets from taxes is unproductive, that bloated corporate bureaucracy for controlling workers is unproductive, that data surveillance is unproductive, that blowing up countries or overthrowing governments is unproductive, that ideological enforcement of ruling ideology is unproductive. All that stuff benefits their class interests, if you let capitalist do as they please ( laissez fair ,if you prefer French ), this is what you get.

If you want more work directed at productive tasks you could go for a soviet style planned economy, cybernetic socialism, social democracy or the chinese model. All these models divert more labor power to the productive sector, either by removing the capitalist class altogether or by controlling them vPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's more an ideological thing, also. These people grew up with parents who worked mon-fri 8 hours a day and busted their ass building up western society and they all worked and did work for their unions too. This generated a sense of work ethic in boomers that they have now turned into an out right fetish. Americans work hard now than any point in history but it's never good enough for these people.
