Capitalism doesn’t care about you


From here:

There is a continual complaint that US manufacturing has been “hollowed out.” Where manufacturing jobs once were tickets to the middle-class lifestyle, there are now fewer and fewer such jobs available. Indeed, the next chart shows that manufacturing jobs are down almost 40% from the peak in 1978 and back to roughly where they were during World War II.

Mindless devotion to an economic system concerned primarily with profit and NOT quality of life makes no sense to me.

People should vote and advocate for their own self-interest, whether that self-interest is profitable or not.
