No modern working class people have done that. You are still obsessed about the early 20th century. Modern working class people just want to have food on the table and shelter to live in. If they stop working they are destined to be poor and possibly homeless, starving and dying on the streets. AND. It doesn't fucking matter if you live in a capitalist or socialist or communist society, that is simply the economic reality in all nation states. Whether you live in America, or China, or Russia, or India, or Mexico, or Canada, or Europe, or where ever. Go to any country and you will find the working class propping up the economies and keeping the lights on and the food delivered to the local grocery stores. The only difference with capitalist/socialist/communist nations is whether the government runs the economy (centralized control) or the private sector runs the economy (decentralized free market). Sometimes, like in America and China today, it's a combination of both.
