"While we're at it, there's no such thing as 'unskilled labor'. The concept does not exist. You cannot take a boardroom CEO and dump them at a dock and call them a longshoreman and expect them to perform flawlessly. It is a fake idea designed to depress your wages"

@muehlfield The only difference is that with "unskilled" labour, when they realise you're new the other workers will sigh and teach you instead of immediately fucking you over for profit.

@muehlfield "Unskilled work" is a legal term (US). "Unskilled labor" is an insult.
