You're analyzing America's labor market and managing to casually mention fascism even here? Oh dear. I have friends - middle managers, nothing fancy - in Europe, they sure complain about their bosses who are forcing them to come to the office. America's adjusting pretty quickly to distributed /remote work. It helps that you can be so mobile in America which you can't "elsewhere in the developed world". You can move to Wyoming! or Florida! So much bullshit sometimes Umair in your collapse porn, some much darkness. You know today I wrote about Dostoevsky. There was a lot of darkness in his masterpieces. But there was light too, like at the end of Brothers Karamazov. You just don't have Umair - the light. But you ain't Dostoevsky (neither am I to be fair!)
