Weird is the world. It’s hard to look at what’s happening and make any rhyme or reason out of it. Big companies and the 1% seem hell bent on gathering all the capital in their pockets, cutting the wages/benefits of the people doing the work (ie generating the profit), creating robots to replace as many employees as humanly possible etc.
Yet to keep making a profit they need customers who have money to spend. But those are the people they are making huge efforts to not pay and get rid off. If there is no middle class who can they sell to?
It seems rather self destructive.
