How does a trade worker in the western world feel knowing that 90% of the cities and roads they build wont be used towards helping others but rather to inflate property prices and the amount of cars on the road increasing carbon emissions and homelessness and still feel a willing fullness to contribute to the building of the foundations of society

I don't really think about it. I've worked on wind and solar, roads, homes, and gas. Really doesn't play and role in my mind or conscience. No ethical consumption under capitalism, no ethical labor under capitalism?

But yeah, I can remember if I think about it, which projects were which, but it really plays no role in my feelings about the memory of the work or at the time. Didn't feel like,
>I'm working on a renewable project yay! I'm helping!
<I'm working on a gasoline project, hisssss! I'm helping destroy the environment destroy the future of my children!

My mind was only focused on the work at hand.

Working in the Walmart Online Grocery department in DFW area of Texas, while I work on my uni degree (legal history, don't worry lol I'm not going to actually try to use it, probably gonna get some trade cert afterwards and maybe try to use the degree to get into union leadership). The job is actually not so bad, aside from occasionally being put on dispense and not having any sun roofs because when Walmart tried to build them the city said they looked "unpleasant."

Pay is absurdly good for an "entry-level job" in this area ($15 an hour, might go up to $16.40), so that helps me ignore that I work with a bunch of senile lazy old women and a bunch of stupid lazy teenagers (one of them asked me, no shit, how many hours were between 5 and 8, rich daddy btw).

The only people I really like there is my main team lead who's a very kind single-mother who gets treated like shit by the store, and a collection of guys between 20 and 30 who also played shit like Morrowind and also hate Walmart. They're mostly pro-union too, but they haven't really developed "class consciousness" say shit like "true capitalism" but maybe they'll come around later.

The department is always beset upon by bunglers (regional term for our market managers) who stand around doing jack shit for 15 minutes and then use what they observe to completely redesign the area, they've done this like 4 times in the 6 or so months I've been working there. I'm not working minimum wage or construction though, so I can't really complain that much.

Good take. Trying to be ethical or moral in a deeply unethical system is insurmountable. Even building solar farms is ultimately done to advance the interests of capital, not to mention exploitative to the workers who harvested the raw materials or performed subassembly. Idealogical tendencies like antiwork or the lifestylist strains of anarchism are generally naive though I wouldn't fault anyone who takes the Ted pill and goes off innawoods to homestead.

Yeah it's more than a little silly to be preoccupied with what your labor is providing for the rulers when you're working in a mine for the overlords (or some variation on that). It's not voluntary.

it should be the opposite… the whole point of the power of the proletariat is that if you realize what you are doing and creating, you will realize that it's all in your hands first of all, and second of all, that not all of it is helpful to you. Thats like, the most basic bitch marxist leftism. What you do is voluntary, and it can change. That's why strikes and shit exist. You do the labor, you're responsible for what it produces, and you have the power to stop or start it. Not saying this in a guilting way like "you shouldn't ever work doing something that might be good for capitalism" cause that's every single job, but at least feel the contradiction instead of being a cynical normie about it.

A workers union would do very little to fix the problems with exploitation americas working class faces like
>the abhorrent taxation costs of paying for the construction repair and maintenance of massive roadways, suburburbs and deliberately poorly designed cities that jack up property prices so heavily that most proles barely have quite literally no money to buy land and are sometimes forced into homelessness or fleeing any built up area all together
>jobs being constantly outsourced or just withholded so the bourgeoisie can force people to beg for jobs leading to common situations of fully trained and degreed graduates having to file for hundreds of jobs for months or years on end to find employment assuming they'll even get employment in the field they're working in(and this is for low paying jobs to get a high paying one it's either nepotism or being born into a rich family)
>having to deal with rent, food, gas, electricity costs while being paid often times below minimum wage( around 40-60% of jobs in the USA pay less than 20k a year, to give you an idea of how bad that is I've seen ordinary 3rd worlders make that kinda pay in 3 years without even going to school) which is why 76% of Americans live on rent to rent payment
>being stripped of any and all social securities while being force fed propaganda that people that need it are lazy or even worse they pull the muh minorities card which is even harder to receive in their scenario all on top of paying to give corporations subsidies loans and bailouts
All in all the way the USA treats it's own civilians and its workforce are one of the reasons why most americans that have the money to flee the country do so or why more mexican migrants go home than go into the country or why black americans historically have been the most prone to just trying to escape the country to anywhere else including the USSR and the Bahamas. You cant fix those problems without a massive crackdown on corporations, mass regulations imposed on markets and nationalization of essential sectors of the economy like food, urban planning and healthcare and providing actual social safety nets so people stop hearing stories about children being forced to start buissnesses or illegally work to pay off healthcare needs or homeless kids, but of course making an efficiently run society where buissness owners cant border on being actual fascists is communist

Capitalists will invest the second they think they can make a profit by doing so, labour costs are the largest single expense for any business so it's no surprise that they all want to slash the number of staff.

The idea that 'automation creates jobs' is a lie, sure there are some jobs created but a net loss overall - people mock the plight of the buggy-whip manufacturer but do you really think that there was anywhere near 25% real unemployment or higher 150 years ago? Back then everyone worked or starved, but we have accepted a huge portion of the country being on welfare as 'the new normal'.

I currently work doing production welding and metal product manufacturing (8 hours a day, 5 days a week) for only a little more then minimum wage, if that means anything to you in regards to your generalization.

On a side note and to ramble for a bit, I'll mention that much of /leftypol/ has a rather rosy view of trades. In reality, dependent on the kind of work you're doing of course, trades can be as just as repetitive and alienating as any other job especially if you're doing any kind of product manufacturing and aren't getting rotated around a lot. Your pay will also be entirely dependent on what exactly you're working on, even if it's rather labour intensive to do it, and how specialized it is. The labour market also plays a big role in the whole "making green" shit someone mentioned before. The reason certain trades have a higher pay in the west is because many of the only trades left in the west are more specialized then those trades shipped overseas (for obvious reasons), or are trades that literally require someone to physically be in the country itself and be trained within it to work there (like plumbing, HVAC, electricians, etc.). If however you are in more "traditional" manufacturing production making something that could easily be produced elsewhere, and the only reason the company you work for exists is because it can still somehow effectively do so cheaper (likely because of distance) or because the other companies it supplies don't have the capacity to purchase from anywhere else and possibly require a product which possesses some minor specialization (that is still cheap enough for what they are doing with it) that can be ordered in batches only whenever they needs them, then expect to not be paid exceptionally well for a good while possibly never, especially if it's a small shop without any kind of union and hires young labour. Job shop work can make good money though depending on location and what's being done.

Basically what I'm saying is that if you want a good paying trade job and don't like repetition, take a job which requires "licensed professionals" and which has you doing troubleshooting, installations, or producing specialized/high value orders that require "advanced" manufacturing methods to make. Cream of the crop is if your job has you as part of a union, then you're set for life.

Yeah unless you work for the government trying to get a professional job sector is notoriously difficult because most companies fail and the ones that dont rarely have enough capital supplied to their brands to he able to pay employees wages as high as your thinking, the ones that can afford too predominantly big tech and companies from the fucking 50s rarely ever use their professional workers for anything useful to humanity beyond financing the imperialist regime of the heads of the us government and giving the bourgeois tools to oppress their own citizens.

It seems that normies do not understand that employee is a euphemism for slave, and I do not mean it as a metaphorical figure, I mean it literally, capitalism does not generate work, capitalism does not provide work, capitalism is the product of a parasitic vision of a sector of the population.

I can't offer you a job, that's false, work is a part of being alive, to live you have to work, if someone offers me a job, I know they want to cheat on me, they want me to work and pay me with what I produce. In his position as mu superior he is the owner of my production and if I accept such a situation it is because I never understood what is a human being and my psychological horizons are small.

In this way, capitalism does not give work, it takes it away from the worker.

Also this parasitic vision of life destroys the humanity that we have, we are human because we learn to be human by living in society, what does this mean?, that as humans we are partners, partners in the use of planet earth. But if someone declares himself the owner of the planet and imposes relationships of patronage and employment, not production and distribution, we no longer live in a society, in fact we are not a society, we are a conglomerate with privileged relationships

Well I wont deny that cities can be claustrophobic and isolating but going so far to believe in overpopulation and the idea that urban densities high enough that you can form entire towns is necessarily bad is what I believe just wrong. First off smaller dense cities generally cause less pollution because they dont use up as much land, and when roadways are dismantled in favour of ordinary walkways and public transit the environmental toll is even lower since no ones consuming petrols excessively, this is why your standard indian causes less co2 emissions compared to say an american living in a city like Phoenix. Second off your belief of overpopulation stems from the false narrative that natural resources and energy cant be reused and recycled much less used efficiently, something that's already been proven wrong when you take into account of how much of global steel is just recycled metal along with another false belief that dense cities are dense because of population sizes and not how the city was designed itself

The school has me teaching subjects i'm not qualified to teach (think STEM from liberal arts) and they have required me to make up the cirriculum from scratch, wouldn't even buy me a textbook. The subject i am actually supposed to teach is straight american propaganda. I've posted it in other threads, pic related is part of the textbook.

Ultimately I'd recommend working in China. But its a fucking minefield, you have no rights here really. The companies know how hard it'd be for you to take them to court, the only thing that stops them really fucking you is how much money they stand to make off you.
That being said, money is great, cities are pretty awesome, food is great, nightlife is great, they have hire bikes and hire scooters that cost fucking nothing so you don't have to have a car, shit, you could probably walk most places if you wanted to. But yeah, working conditions for your chinese coworkers are gonna make you sad, they work like dogs and get paid 1/6 of what you get. But the public holidays are great (everyone got 7 days off for national holiday just now) but after every national holiday they take a weekend day or two to compensate.

Its a mixed bag but i would recommend.

Scary. Why is time something that is a burden for some people? I thought everyone felt they never had enough time in life. You don't need a serious project. Everything on life is a project. Chores/repairs to do, people to keep up with, news to read, media to consume.

Good to know your work is meaningful too. I do IT support for the adult social care/social services department, so like I support the people that support old dinosaurs that can't climb stairs or people with mental issues.
I can't speak for office jobs in general but from what I hear it is quite good, and an office job for the local authorities is pretty much a luxury from what I am told. Only took a year and a half scrounging about in the jobcentre before they found this opportunity for me
The council gives great benefits, discounts in shops, gyms, plenty of annual leave (and unpaid leave anytime I want) and still let me work from home. My co workers and managers are pretty chill as well. We are organised under an agile/scrum workflow which matches my preferrer style of work.
As for the office itself its okay, not too loud and there's a microwave and free coffee/tea and milk round the corner
Private sector on the other hand sounds like hell from what I read in these threads. Toxic atmosphere, employees and managers pitted against each other. The managers being deluded by bosses that they are above the "working class wagies" that they manage, being laid off for any small excuse they can find, being overworked and burnt out, etc. Sounds like I am lucky actually

As a probably undiagnosed Autistic cunt, I'll ask for advice from /leftypol/ of all places.
How do you flirt with coworkers without getting in trouble with the Manager or Human Resources?

 No.547950

>>547923
Very competitive for shit pay. But it will keep the lights on and you won't want to kill yourself going into work. Also in terms of the greater left project atm (which should be/is starting to be entryism into various orgs and unions to help them develop an antagonistic relationship with capital), it's a good idea. It's not vital to the operation of the state, but you get to interact with a ton of people on a local level.
The range of coworkers is thankfully limited to either insufferable libs (focused more on higher up administration) or our guys.
>>547943
Ideally don't piss where you drink. She's trying to get through the workday, just like you. Don't make it weird.
If you absolutely have to smash the 4/10 watching the self check out machines, be upfront and blunt. "Hey, I think you're cute, would you like to do (something, but for the love of God it has to be an actual activity. Don't just say you want to hang out sometime or other vague shit)." If you get rejected, politely accept it and don't bring it up again, mentally treat her like a janitor you don't know the name of. There will always be other people anon, no matter how big of a sperg you are. There's no other trick other than pure numbers.

Anyways didn't put out breakfast today, showing up high as shit tomorrow. My job hasn't been able to find another desk jockey for awhile so I've basically done less than the bare minimum and they don't mention anything because I threatened to walk out on the spot last time they mentioned anything.

>How do you flirt with coworkers without getting in trouble with the Manager or Human Resources?
0) recognize the issues. it matters in some cultures more than others, but there are often stigmas against relationships with co-workers. Doubly so if one has authority over the other (can be seen as coersive/predatory)
1) don't shit where you eat. what happens when you break up but are still co-workers?
2) idk the rest, never tried to go for a co-worker.

how do you get ''probably" undiagnosed lmao

 No.547989

>>547950
>>547953
Thanks for the advice, although I wasn't exclusively looking for a long-term relationship, something casual to have a fuck and a drink together is fine by me, I'm not picky in that regard. As for the culture there doesn't seem to be that much stigma around workplace relationships as long as they don't affect the workflow and there aren't power disparities, even if on paper they are prohibited at least where I live.

I say I'm probably undiagnosed because I've observed that my behavior somewhat coincides with high functioning autism, even if in the past I was more socially well adjusted in comparison to now. And these kind of disorders don't get the same type of attention or care unlike in first world countries, you basically have to look like Quasimodo with Down Syndrome to receive attention.

So the move here is to make minimal small talk as to build rapport and then declare my intent (going out on a date, going out for a drink by the beach, eating her out, etc) without vacillating? And in case of most likely getting rejected simply leave them alone and treat them normally?

My job is a waste of time and does a great disservice to my intelligence and capabilities. In theory it pays decently well, although the government takes half in taxes and yet still everything is still shitty. Worse, it requires the use of my brain, which I would rather apply to writing, research, and and more important, enduring labors or the mind.

This aspect of my job is particularly vexatious, as I waste considerable cognitive power on relatively trivial problems, thankless tinkering of technical configurations etc. And I am bossed around by managers who make more money and know nothing but tell people what to do. In my industry, the people who do my work are the producers and everyone else depends on our expertise and technical skills. Yet it is always us they expect to do the most work, and pile on more and more red tape and rules, trying to tell us how to do our jobs using their faddish buzzword-inflected productivity techniques.

I'm also stuck doing what is effectively bitch work, or the least interesting work in the field because of where I'm at in my career and the fact that I got good enough at doing this part of the job and couldn't be bothered to spend the rest of my precious time "upskilling" to learn what might be the more interesting stuff.

To make matters worse, this line of work never gets less frustrating. As you get better only a new class of frustrating problems come into focus while the ones that used to frustrate you go away. But it is without end and it is DESTINED that you will be frustrated.
