Top contender for most tone deaf tweet in history

Is that what Pelosi meant when she told Wolf that she feeds them. THAT SHE FEEDS THEM!

@snoopydawg There are way fewer jobs. Very few workers will make gains, even with the possibility of a $15 minimum wage.

@on the cusp was looking at the headlines over on zero hedge, and read what the tech owners want the future of restaurant employees to look like.

A Whopping 91% Of US Restaurants Will Invest In Kitchen Automation, Says Survey

A new report via payments company Square titled "Future of Restaurants" discusses an overview of how technology is sweeping through the industry. Square partnered with Wakefield Research to survey 500 restaurant owners and managers across the country.

I don't know if the following video is deep fake bullshit or not, but look at the footwork. Sheesh. I want a robot dog Grampy Joe, c'mon man! A good paying job and three robots in every garage why not? What powers them, batteries? I don't know, but they sure look useful when they are not glitch-producing ED-209s blowing bodies to smithereens.

There is a thread of yarn from here to Wat, which came from a programmers demo on how all software sucks because mistakes are so easy to make. Every one knows what makes the robots dance, right? Yes I'm sorry the answer is software.

wgo linked to some techie humor that made frequent use of it. Appears be to somewhat established techie slang associated with radical incongruities and other such things:

Know your meme, which improperly capitalizes it, says

"Wat" is a variant of the English word "what" that is often used to express confusion or disgust, much like its better known acronym "WTF", short for "what the fuck." Although the term "wat" is most frequently used as an interjection without a question mark, it is sometimes used to caption reaction face images or peculiar images that would evoke similar responses.

Urban dictionary provides:

The only proper response to something that makes absolutely no sense.
1: If all the animals on the equator were capable of flattery, Halloween and Easter would fall on the same day.
2: wat

1: Wow your cock is almost as big as my dad's.
2: wat

1: I accidentially a whole coke bottle
2: You accidentially what?
1: A whole coke bottle
2: wat

It is widely asserted that wat is a complete sentence and should never be punctuated and that it should never be capitalized.

This link is to the link lot posted, if you watch it even a little while you'll see some classic uses, even if you never coded. https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/talks/wat

Taibbi on who would qualify for student loan relief. I’m only half way through but it’s disgusting to see the trap people get caught in when they take them out. It was, do this if you want relief so they did. But then the rules changed and then changed even more by the no child left behind crap that started with Bush then Bama and Trump. I don’t know who Biden has picked, but I’m sure it’s someone who will continue the agenda. And come up with some catchy name.

But the worst thing that happened to them was Biden’s bankrupt bill. You know some of the rest of the story. I don’t think I can really imagine what it’s like to keep paying on something that just won’t go away for some.

falls through, no amount of gaslighting will get the Democrats thru the midterm elections without the loss of the House and Senate.

As I'm certain they understand. That's probably the plan. Hold the boat as steady as you can and move out of the front of the line in 2 years. Go back to the comfortable position from which raising revenue is the only actual objective and concern.

The "fix" they are offering this morning is less than nothing. It concerns only workers in the largest companies. Where most of us do not work.

Millions of people laboring in small and medium sized enterprises---in fields, farms, retail stores, homes, care centers, sinks in salons and kitchens---remain unprotected.

There is still some small amount of hope that Bernie can put his finger in the dyke and stop the flood of lies and bad will. As Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, the bill that reaches the Senate for a vote needs HIS okay. Not Schumers. Not Mcconnells. Not, for fuck's sake, a nod from the parliamentarian.

The more incompetent they appear to be, the more certain they can be that they will lose comfortably in the midterms. And that will let them go back to their preferred roles of sitting on the sidelines, bitching and moaning, not being responsible for anything, and oh by the way fleecing the living bejeezus out of their braindead donors ("Missed it by THAT much! Just give us more money, and we'll win next time for sure!"). That way, they can gorge themselves on the infinite supply of free, untraceable cash that fills their slop-trough, without having to pause their lucre-mastication long enough to try and govern. Win-win: all it takes is losing, which after all is said and done is their true specialty.

The 2020 election was a mistake, and an aberration. They'll be back to their (very profitable!) losing ways toot sweet.

I keep hearing is that a rise in minimum wage will drive up inflation.
This is proved false by the rampant inflation in the last 13 years of no raise in the Federal Minimum Wage.
Basically, the ruling mob is telling us "The beatings will continue until morale improves."

@earthling1

when many of the people that work for Amazon or Walmart or any big business that doesn't pay a living wage because we pay for their food, housing and some utilities because they qualify for them. But the companies also get subsidies and huge tax breaks which congress could tie to them paying living wages, but no they are trying to come up with some back door way to get it done.

Easier fix is to tell the lady she is wrong and vote for it anyway. Penalize every company that doesn't pay decent. Gawd's nightgown half the country has voted for higher pay and it is popular, but no, we just can't do it even tho once again they have the power to pass whatever THEY WANT. And there's the truth.

that democrats are sticking with the pay go rules that repubs usually get a pass on when they do recon. But of course it is just another excuse to not increase it cuz their donors do not want it increased. Look at the fight when it was under 5 bucks in the 80's.

Dems want to lose the senate. Don't know why they think they will keep the house after this display unless they know something I don't.

and drive up the cost of a hamburger that has been going up anyway thru the years even tho MW did not keep up. And now that companies are going with robots and such it's a mute point anymore anyway since most jobs are going to be some type of gig one where there is no MW or benefits or anything that workers fought for and congress took away.

I wish people would boycott it and understand that if their jobs can be automated they will be. Including the bad apples that keep killing us and doing the ptb bidding, cops, are going to be replaced by robot dawgs that can be equipped to use weapons. NYC just did a robot dawg intervention on a home invasion. Unarmed. For now.

$15 will lead to automation and drive up the cost of a hamburger..

I think automation is not dependent on whatever the corporate class
decides is a living wage. It will happen because of profits,
bottom line thinking. We've been forced to believe our efforts are
beyond the 'cost of living' increases. Because corporate profit.
Same with pensions, social security and medicare.

Loss of opportunity is the next phase.
Getting strangled into poverty.
Because corporate profits.

@QMS

my snark does not come across as well when it's written. That is what I am usually told when I back the minumum wage. One guy was commenting on just that and saying that will cause it in a thread about a robot dawg that was being tested. I said that he was right, cuz look just as dems started talking about it here were the robot dawgs that were just created after Biden won in Nov.

Companies have been working towards keeping all their profits for well long time so of course it was snark. Keeping it as low as it is just one way for them to keep more of their money while we support workers through social programs. Walmart, Amazon, anywhere and we pick up the tab and congress guts the funds for them and more people suffer. What's not to like?

would kill too many (of the remaining) small businesses.

As was suggested above by the article on restaurant tech - burger flipping, automatable jobs will get automated by those who can afford to do so, but not a realistic option for businesses relying on skill or knowledge intensive work requiring a human, or who cannot afford the capital investment to automate.

All works well for Jeff Bezos, or MacDonald's but would be the for a whole lot of small businesses and kill off neighborhoods or small towns already down to a handful of surviving independent businesses.

FWIW - $1.25 was the minimum wage in 1964 - the last year of silver coinage issue. Today, the value of the silver (today's spot price) in five silver quarters is approximately $28.50...
