If capital is mobile (capital mobility), it will move away anyway. Since when capital moves to a cheap labor region, this shift uprising to this new region, so on, forever. As I understand by quickly reading: Silver, Forces of labor.
We only speed up this process for mobile capital. The most exploitative capital is likely already moved to developing regions, Poland, Romania, if EU. It is likely migrants work at this capital. Poland migrants in Germany. Ukrainians in Poland, so on. If capital moves from Germany to Poland, is not this a win for Poland workers who were working in Germany? They can return home, there will be more jobs at home.
OWS: from wikipedia page, hey demanded to reduce unemployment, lower inequality but shorter workday should solve both. I assume they did not know that working less is possible.>>394092
The bullshit job "workers" know their job is bullshit.> pointless, unnecessary, or pernicious that even the employee cannot justify its existence
May be they will like to do meaningful work, specially if it is less hours a day. The book author is pro UBI. I can't find publication at the moment, but shorter work day is better than UBI.>>394117
How to recognize high antagonism? By the number of protests? There were protests. At DWS protest, may be they did not know they can demand a shorter workday.>>394216>Reading a book about London commies trying to organize migrant factory labor, it became evident that many were resistant to being more militant because they actually had informal deals between their landlords and employers to be paid in cash, or have debts forgiven, or network to get better jobs.
Not in London, but yes. I did study on Ukraine immigrants in EU, they upload videos to youtube. Some of them frequently change jobs, not happy, have nothing to loose.
>There was a unionization drive in the 80's at a factory near where I live, it failed because the workers didn't want the informal "family" atmosphere between them and their employers to be formalized by a union contract.
The boss-friend will never agree to reduce their working hours to 4, so the antagonism will increase.
>People don't want to formally "demand a four hour workday" because a lot of them are actually living it,
Then you will work 2 hours and 2 hours your will pretend you are working.>or otherwise working out informal deals with their bosses to make their lives a little less shit.
Work 4 hours a day, no need to lick boss ass or ask for permission to work less.
