John Maynard Keynes' Prediction

All wage slaves should check out the prediction made by John Maynard Keynes in 1928. He predicted that by the year 2028 technology would replace all work and no one would need to worry about making money. We still are not there, but there is only 13 years to go and technology at this time is proving Keynes right about technology replacing workers of all medial and even higher knowledge workers, which is why college degrees no longer demand higher wages. Their wages have remained flat during the last years. At this time most new jobs are low paying. We are now in a model of mass production by many for mass consumption by many. But this model of unlimited production by a handful for consumption by the few able to afford it will kill the capitalist system and is the reason that the ratio of employees to customers is already dropping to mind-boggling lows. Low paying personal service sector of the economy will just not support the system we are used to. There has to be an infusion of cash into the pockets of the spenders and it won’t come from jobs for there will be very few. The money will have to come from the billionaires in taxes or payments from the use of our Commons or a share of the profits from all patents. This would be a condition for receiving protection of their patents. Some say 20 percent of all such profits were split equally among all citizens starting the month they turn 18 there would be a basic minimum income for all. To ensure a minimally decent standard of living including money to buy the technologies that would be free then form work and create the society that John Maynard Keynes predicted would come in 2028, an abundance of technological in which no one would need unless they wanted to work. There are lots of options for a jobless capitalist system and plenty of volunteer work that can be done to better our society. There is volunteer work for the old to the young, firefighting, auxiliary police, environmental, trails, hospital aides, schools—all of these things and more could be enhanced at very little cost. So we need to start thinking about no paying jobs for 2028 is right around the corner.

Post Workists and What it Means

To change the abundance of labor in the world is to put more money in the pockets of the laborer to buy the products their fellow workers are making. Otherwise, when there are more products than money, there is slump in the economy. Austerity policies, low wages and automation (robots) were also of concern in the 1950s when Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, took Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Workers Union, on a tour of a new engine plant. Ford gestured to a fleet of new machines and said, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” The union leader turned to Ford and said, “Henry, how are you going to get robots to buy your cars?” This type of change in the labor has created a new type of working class that swings from task to task in order to make ends meet while enduring the loss of labor rights and bargaining rights. They are called “precariat” workers, a group of workers who live on the verge of collapse due to the instability of the nature of their job…

GOP To Pick-off Remainder of Unions

The last bastion of organize labor is now on the west and east coasts, like New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Labor has mostly given up on the south and the middle of the U.S., is that because unions aren’t up to the fight? We have lost Detroit, Michigan and Wisconsin, which was the start of public unions. These GOP government control states, like govenors Synder and Pence have kicked our union butts. In California, labor has lost all of the rural counties, Orange and San Diego counties; and now San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles counties are our last strong holds. It would not take a lot to lose California. California has elected GOP governors before and with our new federal government now in place and with the Koch brothers, et al, and their money it could be done again. We, union workers, could lose it all. They have started on teachers’ union and they are still trying to break the postal workers union by forcing the pension funds to be funded 75 years ahead of pa…

Gig Economy

The Gig con, which sells people on a more flexible job without fixed hours. This sounds enticing to workers fed up with their 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs. Also, to people without jobs, and to people who have part-time jobs, and need more money. Gig jobs fill in many needs, but the rub is that these jobs or most of these jobs don’t pay into Social Security or Social Disability Insurance so when someone hits retirement age there is nothing to fall back on. Most have been told that Social Security will not have money for them because Social Security will be broke. This is a lie and a con job on the workers. Social Security will be OK if the federal government will keep its hands off the money we paid into it. They think it is their piggy bank. Then what if you get sick or injured on the Gig job, there is no healthcare. We know that we are running out of jobs here and worldwide. This is why we need the universal basic income and unions for all. At this time, the federal government estimates…
