Idk. Could be both. Probably more on the anti-capitalist side of things though, but without any systemic or cultural critique or analysis. If that makes sense.

I remember some posts about the "beta-male" nature of being a "wagie", by the same people who would talk about hikikomori, and collecting welfare as alternatives. Besides "NEET pride" there was some overlap with MGTOW stuff, sometimes coupled with financial independence investment strategies. Not quite the entrepreneurs and hustlers that would get enthusiastic about free markets n shit, but also not anti-capitalist.

Not sure if it helps complete the picture, but a quick look at the mod log of the past week; users who throw around 'wagecuck' are active on:

r/wallstreetbets, r/Chadposting, r/PublicFreakout, r/gunpolitics, r/LateStageCapitalism, r/moderatepolitics, r/stupidpol, r/antinatalism, r/collapse, various crypto subreddits

I remember seeing it a lot from people who believed they were gonna make it big off crypto or stocks or whatever.
