    Just because YOU’RE a particularly selfish jerk, doesn’t mean everyone is. Most people want to contribute and feel useful. Alot of people wouldn’t give two shits about flipping burgers if they had a reasonable work environment and could live reasonably from it.

    Work is insufferable because most work environments are garbage worlds of drama and living under the guillotine of job cuts or under staffing paired with overwork. With UBI and/or better social benefits, people could breathe for two seconds and find something that fits them well or feel safe leaving a hostile workplace.

    They’d still be working, but they could find the right job for them instead of being trapped - which would improve work quality for EVERYONE because a nightmare workplace would just be starved of labor instead of being able to jerk workers around cause the alternative is homelessness.

      Oh, I’m so hurt by you lashing out in an ignorant personal attack because your feelings are hurt. There, there. Have a cookie and some milk. Don’t you feel better now?

      Option A: Once you’re in control of yourself again, slow down and think through what you said. It’s not very logical. If most people don’t have to work to live, they won’t. And even if what you say is true “the right job for them” is going to leave a whole lot of essential jobs relatively empty. Some of those jobs are hard to fill even with financial incentive.

      Option B: If you can’t control yourself, this conversation is now over.

        I see you don’t have anything to add except flailing over 4 words out of 140 then doubling down on being a catty little child, and a hearty self-masturbatory “nuh uh.”

        Could just admit you have no counterargument, but either way I’m not obligated to engage with disengenuous tone policing garbage. Bye Felicia.
