I tried to google this, but couldn't really find much: lots of young people hold crypto, but what is their slice of the pie in terms of amount held?
A Lambo seems like something they'd buy after avocados and houses. I keep seeing links saying stuff like 30% of millennials will be invested in cypto Soon, but apparently we're still killing homeownership.
I was pretty despondent after I bricked my camera, but kleinbl00 pointed me towards sending it into the manufacturer for repairs.
It worked out to be significantly cheaper than replacing, even though the damage I'd caused necessitated replacing the main board and thus tearing apart the entire thing.
The retail apocalypse is pushing more and more logistic operations into the metros.
Traditional shippers need more and bigger facilities to handle the constant rise in volume, and stuff like Amazon Same Day is only viable if they have major warehouses inside of population centers. Right now it's an industry that is labor heavy, but that'll change.
Pretty much every warehousing/logistics automation video I've seen on youtube is either robits or complex conveyor systems.
- Where we love our shows of power is flying military jets over sporting events.
My city's got a fuckin' polaris missle in a city park.
On raw wages:
In the KC area, FedEx is sitting at $12.50/hr for newhire unskilled labor. If indeed.com is trustworthy.
The UPS/IBT national contract sets the floor for newhire unskilled labor at $10/hr. In the KC area they are at $10.20.
UPS is in negotations with IBT right now for the new contract that comes up August 1st. It will be... interesting.
UPS wins hands down once the union benefits kick in, but that takes a year.
tl;dr: UPS < Wallyworld < FedEx
On the other hand, UBI is fairly market orientated.
Here's some economy points, go forth and spend as you will while we stigmatize you for it is a damn sight more American than let's organize consumers into a massive state backed bloc and drive down costs.
- I hate the union, they've done nothing for me. It's stupid!
-- The lady at work in a cushy seniority bid position after having life saving surgery for free on the union health plan.
- And can someone explain to me why many Americans think that unions is a bad thing? (Or why unions are a bad thing in the US)
I feel like this is another thing that millennials might kill, but the "git 'er done" work ethic in the US is real and deeply ingrained.
The NLRB is also structured in a way that weakens unions. We've have a few cases in my local in the past year where the company was clearly violating the contract, but the cases still managed to got sent off to Arbitration. Never heard about them again, so I assume they decided against the union. One of these cases was black and white where the company was selectively handing out extra-contract bonuses to employees. If we'd won that, it would have easily put thousands of dollars in lots and lots and lots of pockets.
We've also inflicted a lot of wounds against ourselves. See Hoffa, Hoffa Jr, Ron Carey, etc, ect.
