    I know this is supposed to be funny, but does it horrify anyone else that social media is being used by employers to monitor how happy we are to be slaves to capitalism and if we aren’t 1000% enthusiastic about having to work, you’re immediately terminated? He says “Good luck with your no money, no job life” but the implication is pretty clear–”Good luck starving to death because you didn’t live to serve me/my company” 

    So if you express a feeling about your job/working/capitalism on your own social media space that doesn’t please your employers, you’re punished.

    Holy fuck

    This is some dystopian shit right here

    This is actually illegal in the US, by the way. There’s a thing called the National Labor Relations Act that protects your right to complain about your job (the reasoning being if you can’t complain you can’t find other employees with similar complaints to start a union with).

    If this happens to you, you should file a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board.
