I want time - above all things - can you offer me a way to still live my life, more than enough just to scrape by and not struggle, and enough time left for me in each day so I can enjoy the planet and life I was born into? Your offer for work is good for the life that's been pre-determined and way corporations think we should live, but it's not a good enough solution. While you offer the opportunity not to starve, you don't offer the opportunity to get ahead, sleep soundly, enjoy time before life is over, or to provide enough pay to not worry about bills slipping behind or taking care of our families. How is this not indentured servitude? When there is nothing extra, and no extra time, only enough to allow me to continue to serve you all my days and not starve? You offer no opportunity for savings - your pay does not meet the demands of the set cost of living that the monopolies are determining. All you offer is a slow death. That is not living. This reminds me of peasants and "Noblemen"; taking away our ability to sustain ourselves and then "allowing" us to work for them so we don't starve. But nothing we make belongs to us, nothing we earn is ours, it is only to sustain YOU... in truth, your job offer is an offer for us to give up our lives and sustain you...while gaining nothing tangible in return. IF you hadn't first contributed to the death of our ability to sustain ourselves then perhaps you could be seen as a sort of provider, but that ability was stolen by your kind (monopolies and those who support them politically or who hold stocks) and Wall Street and now you're only offering to sell back what was taken against our will. Now, even forcing us to buy it.
Dear government officials and courts – why do you sell out your people while partnering with monopolies who want to eliminate our ability to sustain ourselves, stamp out or buy up all entrepreneurs and competitors, and force us to live off of them?
