Devos said “only 0.02% of children would die” if schools reopened.
It’s 14,000 kids. that she just said it’s ok if they die. These people are genocidal and inhumane. I hate it here.
It’s not just about the deaths too.
There will be many more kids who will gain permanent life debilitating illnesses and disabilities because of this virus. There will be kids who will spread this disease to their other families and will have to deal with the trauma of a loved one that they live with dying.
It’s so unjustly cruel.

Anyone who thinks children will socially distance at school has never met children

It’s not just about the children either, or their immediate family. What if those family members have work or school? A kid brings covid home because a single classmate had it. Their parents, siblings, and maybe even grandparents contract it. The parents go to work and it spreads to their coworkers and clients. The siblings go to school or work and spread it too. The grandparents will likely die. The coworkers and classmates go home and spread it to their families. The cycle continues.
This is why social distancing is so vital right now. It’s not just about the people in your immediate vision. It’s about every single person you interact with and every single person they interact with and so on and so forth.
The capitalists are straight up demanding child sacrafices - and yall are offering them up unconditionally

They said exploited labor. As in the entire food industry where they don’t pay you a livable wage. It’s all based on tips you get from customers Aaaaand they expect you to jus sort of stay a smooth 30min and Then Some after your scheduled to be off
I don’t mean closers either
Yeah, how dare someone work for an amount of money they agreed to in advance?
Labour under capitalism is exploitated by default
Your boss extracts value from your labour, essentially compensating you for much, much less than it’s worth and pocketing the extra (the surplus value)
The surplus value is how an employer profits off of said labour simply for owning the means through which the labour is performed (e.g. building, tools, fields etc) or the means of production.
Any form of labour in which the workers do not democratically control the means of production, is exploitative labour
youtube as a corporation may be evil but i do appreciate the thousands of people who upload guides and instructions and recipes and workouts for free. like they don’t even get paid unless they have over a certain amount of subscribers but they do it anyway so dumbasses like me can search ‘how to dice an onion’ and get thousands of videos with simple visual instructions and only like half of them are from big companies
(Every day in the run-up to The International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners on July 25th, we are profiling antifa currently locked up for fighting against bigotry and hatred.)
David Campbell is being unjustly imprisoned for events that unfolded at the protest of a New York City alt-right event on January 20, 2018. At the protest a brawl broke out in which a 56-year-old intoxicated alt-right man was knocked unconscious. During the brawl a police officer, unannounced, threw David to the ground breaking his leg in two places. With no other arrests made on either side, the officer alleged that David had stalked, punched, and strangled the alt-right party attendee, and then tried to strangle the officer himself.
The initial charges were dropped after surveillance footage failed to back up any of the above allegations. However they were replaced with a more vague and heavy-handed charge of Gang Assault. Gang Assault makes any group of three or more people involved in a fight legally responsible for each other’s actions, and carries a steep mandatory minimum of 3.5 years.
After almost two years of legal maneuvering, David took a non-cooperating plea for a sentence of 18 months in a local facility, to avoid a trial and a much longer sentence in a facility far away from his friends and family. During this period the Manhattan DA inexplicably offered much more lenient plea deals involving only community service to a number of alt-right gang members arrested and charged in a separate but very similar case about ten months after David. No justification for these disparate outcomes has been given by the Manhattan DA. The arresting officer in David’s case has not been held responsible for breaking David’s leg and lying about David’s actions.
