The problem is that, if we stay on Reddit, we can only reach people who are already on here. I agree that outreach is necessary, but imo it should be done on a local level in local media by individuals, rather than on national TV.

u/Blobbo3000 Jan 27 '22

There are already 1 million people on this sub. When I joined, 4 months or so ago, there were, what, not even 200,000?

It grew organically so fast, by word of mouth, that big media started feeling the need to dismiss it as a joke in the US. It doesn't need TV or external media. It will continue growing because the stories in here MUST be told.

I feel sorry for her too. It was an unwise decision, and negative feedback on the "opportunity" from the rest of the community should have been listened to.

Ego may have been heavily involved (and lets be honest, most of us have done dumb shit in our lives because of our ego) but I have no doubt this moderator thought she was doing the right thing and had high hopes for the interview.

It sucks. The media is as much our enemy as politicians are.

Oh ego definitely played a part, but she went on fox news ffs (why?)... it's not like she couldn't have predicted how that would go, but she played right into their hands & gave them exactly what they wanted, & the subreddit came off as, "oh those people just don't want to work, what a bunch of losers". Which I'm sure is the opposite of the message she wanted to send.

Well not like Pink Floyd didn’t warn you that attacking the education system is one of the first steps towards fascism.

Work is important, for dignity, inclusion, and self-value. Those things have been under concentrated attack for decades. It was fully exposed in the battle for a living wage. You want THAT MUCH money for doing THAT WORK?? The idea that a class of full-time work exists that people believe is not worth the employee earning enough to survive should be appalling.

It’s exposed in the indifference to being treated with dignity. Most everyone in the service industry has a story of asking a manager to be off on a certain date for an important event (off without pay I should add) and then being scheduled to work and scrambling to find coverage because you aren’t important enough and not worthy of respect in scheduling.

Being told to come to work sick. Friend’s wife was running 102 fever on a Friday night in the middle of a flu outbreak and manager fired her for refusing to come in, and hand low quality steaks to customers and refill their drinks.

Restoring dignity to the working classes is as American as it gets and instead the world gets told we want a magic sorting hat to place people in work or we want people to just learn enough to do only the job they want and be able to stay home if there isn’t work in their preferred occupation.

Damn embarrassing to see this sub painted as the headquarters for a movement based on I’ll do what I want or do nothing at all laziness.

"People will train workers in their workplace... schools won't exist"

Oh great, let the corporations train you for very specific roles within their organizations.

He clearly doesn’t..hes a 21 year old unemployed kid…he thinks every worker can be trained on job like fast food workers or warehouse workers..good luck training doctors, structrual engineers, software developers and so many other jobs at workplace without any prior knowledge.

64

u/ninjadogs84 Jan 27 '22

What he's suggesting is worse than that.

It's that people would be trained on the job. Which would mean employers would train you to be a Dr for their business. Which really means you could only ever be a Dr for their business.

They have no idea what they are talking about or what the ramifications of that actually are.

They've taken the fact that modern schools, specifically K-12, have very much become conditioning machines to keep the laboring class subservient and decided that schools are bad.

They don't realize that schools/universities could be reformed to what they strived to be in ancient Greek times. A world without schools would be a world without greater education.

Never worked a day in his life, yet according to him me and my fellow teachers are part of the problem? Lol. How are you gonna have zero life experience or job experience, and represent over a million working class people who want change??

81

u/DarkSensei3 Jan 27 '22

I have a feeling he didn't do great in school and probably needed teachers more than the rest of us.

But it's too late now. He fell into "representing" us and isn't even logical enough to not accept the responsibility.

At 21 I had already been in the work force for 6 years. It's so cringy how bad this mod really is imo.

u/caramelswirllll Jan 27 '22

Same, I got my first job at 16! That’s what gets me, that he has so little self awareness, he can’t even understand WHY he’s a horrible fit for “representation”. This sub is about workers rights, and us wanting, and deserving better. He doesn’t know what workers need or how shitty we’re treated because he’s never even been one lol. Ugh someone send help

The PR person in me has me thinking that this is designed to sow strife into this sub so that it loses its power, which is what employers would LOVE.

And I agree – mods should not be giving interviews. You cannot & do not represent the people following or posting in this sub. You are simply a moderator & will do more damage than you think. I’ve media prepped lots of people for interviews & know for a fact the people moderating here are not interview ready & should not speak for this group.

Thank you!

Hello, also a teacher.

This kind of student is my favorite because they’ll take me not engaging with them as this massive win against “the man” meanwhile i simply just don’t have the time to teach a 15 year old why every little thought in their head isn’t a groundbreaking revelation and why being edgy isn’t a personality trait all while attempting to teach 80 other kids somewhat accurate history while my state government is putting out laws saying i have to present “both sides” about slavery.

Friendly reminder: this is the "post left" mod who tried to taunt leftist users (socialists/communists/ancoms) with a "leftism failed" comment and advocates "post civ" dark ages farmer life.

This mod tried to taunt users with a "ban counter" under one of the thedacare posts.

This mod threatened the ban hammer against anyone that dared to express that they would violently defend themselves against the systemic violence of capitalism, and asserted (under the big thedacare post) that you can peacefully resist the systemic violence of capitalism.

This mod (also under the big thedacare post) dodged and evaded questions about whether or not they believe that the workers in history who were massacred by the police/military/thugs, were in the wrong for violently defending themselves against massacre, after this mod constantly kept threatening users with the "no calls for violence" rule even in response to people just fucking wanting to defend themselves against the systemic violence of capitalism.

I mean come the fuck on you guys. This is the best you have to offer on the mod team? THIS? You've collectively taken the movement out back and put a bullet in it, and now you're having a 21 year old unemployed anarchist try and drag the corpse back around to the front.

Most reddit mods are recluse, stuck in their own bubble with their monitor being the only window to the world.

They make no money from what they do, but they are more than happy to volunteer as it gives them reason to not work.

I have doubts as to how useful they really are, and the huge void between the real world and their world means I wouldn't rather they didn't represent me or this movement.
