  •  My very first job was (2+ / 0-)

    as a switchboard information operator in Santa Monica.

    In 1966, there was no internet, just banks of thick phone books to frantically leaf thru as fast as we could.

    There were jobs for everyone who wanted one and even a full time menial job would pay for an apartment and groceries.

    Either we revert to a barter system or find a way to convince our government to implement a baseline income for everyone or our economy will crash- is crashing, slow motion but still crashing.

    People are desperate and no one in DC cares.
    How many pitchforks and torches will it take?

    'A scarlet tanager broke the silence with his song. She thought of the bird hidden in the leaves somewhere, unseen but nevertheless brilliant red. Nevertheless beautiful.' Barbara Kingsolver/ Prodigal Summer
