"essential workers deserve a living wage" is a red herring. It's incrementalism when doing that has failed at every point in our past, where every time we get some small improvement to our lives, it's been slow-walked back while those in charge lie to our face about how they're actually doing the right thing.

"Everyone deserves to live above poverty" is what we should be going for. Everything going on right now is proof positive that the system exists to keep every person (notice I said person and not worker) barely surviving from the scraps that it gives them, and to invest everyone above that "barely subsisting" level invested in the system that keeps everyone else down.

We must demand for ourselves and each other a better world, not just for those that are "useful" or "essential" but for all people, who deserve the dignity of life.

This is the first time in a while I've felt like buying bitcoin. That drop was too much panic and too little reason.

We need to know whether our hospitals are safe. If we can't even prevent retaliation against healthcare workers for warning of hazards during a pandemic, "whistleblower protection" is a cruel myth. bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

Coronavirus: GE workers walk off the job and demand they build ventilators

'Our country depends on these highly skilled workers and they’re wondering why they are facing layoffs instead of having the opportunity to use their skills to help save lives'

subtoot-ish, tech 

imagine being CEO-or-whatever of Mozilla Corporation, showing up on a panel at Decentralized Web Summit, and then shoving Pocket centralized bookmarking service and DNS-over-HTTPS centralized service down your user's gullets

except that it seems Mozilla's habit is to add more centralized services to its web browser even though we have decentralized technologies to do those same things.
