So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

You’re telling people to stop venting and “start changing things” with absolutely no further instructions on what that means.

I would suggest they start by educating themselves about the power of labour unions, on the job walkoffs, and general calls to action by strike leaders. Belonging to this reddit sub is a great start in the right direction.

Belonging to this sub won’t do much, we can’t even name companies without violating Reddit policy.

It’s literally just a platform for people to learn the basics, and that doesn’t happen when people argue in circles about what is and isn’t okay to complain about when you can’t afford to survive.

You're right - it isn't OK. None of this is OK. I hope you see positive changes in your lifetime. I would especially encourage everyone reading this sub to continue reading, organizing, and talking to other people. Change spreads when people share new ideas. So many people from other countries have done just that on this thread. Some people are just beginning to see that wage theft is a thing, and it isn't the norm across the world.
