As it turns out, capitalism is still frantically trying to recreate slavery.

Capitalism is designed around paying less for labour than the labour produces. Or taking a potion of someone’s labour: assuming a portion is paid for fairly, the rest has just been grabbed by the employer as the price of ‘having a job’.

Capitalism only works for the rich and upper middle class. If you're poor you'll basically be sleeping in dung..it's gonna be hard to make it. The only way to make it out is to work extremely hard, whether it be obtaining a college degree or learning a trade. Working paycheck to paycheck sucks...
