Welcome to a Brave New World, where to question the motivations or actions of an employer (or potential employer)for any reason, in any way, is “Marxism”.
Shocking, isn’t it, to discover that you have been a “Marxist” all these years, when you actually though you were a typical, patriotic American?
But don’t feel to badly: I’ve been a “job-creator” for 40 years, and lately I’ve realized I must be a “Marxist” too, by the standards of “Be properly grateful for whatever you betters offer”.
Likely though, you do have a problem: lots of the places where you apply for work *are* looking for people so desperately grateful for work, on any terms and under and conditions, that they will *never* question what they are asked to do, or why - and the fact that you are even daring to ask the question automatically “disqualifies” you for the job.
Does not have to be that way, here’s how a *real* Capitalist (and a hyper-successful) thinks about hiring people who “question authority”:
“I want us to listen to these dissenters because they may intend to tell you why we cant do something, but if you listen hard, what theyre really telling you is what you must do to get something done.”
- Bob Pittman, chairman and chief executive of Clear Channel
Finding the job that lets you use you talents and insights may not be easy - in fact, it may be very hard - and you may have to compromise your principles in the meantime.
But those employers do exist, and refusing to accept that you should be “grateful” for the opportunity to work for some other kind does not make someone a “Marxist” - quite the opposite, it means that they are not one of the compliant, drifting mass of the “faux-employed”- the people resigned to working “private-sector” jobs that would not exist were it not for massive taxpayer subsidies such as Medicaid, SNAP, and the like.
