idk guys left unity isn't hard, like, here let me try

a decentralized society free of arbitrary hierarchies with as much local level democratic participation and accountability is the ideal and essentially necessary for a society to progress towards communism


such a decentralized organization probably can't survive the revolutionary struggle necessary to overcome the power of the bourgeoisie and concentrated capital and at least some "authoritarian" and/or centralized elements are just a physical necessity dictated by the material circumstances at hand

idk yall is this libertarian marxism

I can believe it. It's where I was exposed to unicorn riot's live stream and watched minneapolis cops spray journalists with rubber bullets for asking for directions on where they wanted them to go, concussion grenades thrown at them, then rubber bullets pelting one person already rendered motionless on the street and another trying to check on him (who turned to yell "you motherfuckers are gonna shoot someone already on the ground")

now I'm not gonna see any of that shit because Twitter sucks and I don't want to use it

Please brigade the fuck out of /r/employedbykohls, this company is a hotbed of frustrated workers and if there were even the slightest bit of organized support I think we have a strong chance of unionizing or at least mass strikes. People were pissed off before coronavirus, now we're back at work making half what we were on unemployment with insufficient "safety" procedures that amount to mostly theater.

Even before coronavirus, we are overworked and underpaid. Our compensation is arbitrary and might as well just be a number pulled out of a hat. And since most of my coworkers are persons of color serving primarily entitled white boomers, idk, it's got a real New Jim Crow vibe to how hard we're worked and how little we're paid. I'm white though and paid just as shit.

I've got one coworker who's been there almost 11 years and still isn't making $11/hr. She tried to get a raise when she was shoe supervisor and was denied. Then they hired this fat honkey and he claimed he was making like $12.50/hr., and he did fuck all so I don't see any justification for it. I was explicitly told by the then-store-manager that they could pay outside hires more than internal promotions. It's fucked. She then got shoved into the Kids supervisor position (worse department, more mess, no extra pay). She's basically chained to this job by her health insurance, because she needs seizure medication or else she'll die.

Oh also it's real fucking fun doing work for Amazon, taking their returns, literally spending all day doing labor for Amazon, but AT Kohls, but not getting Amazon pay.

Fuck there's so much more I could complain about, this is just shit off the top of my head.

I posted like a 10000 character complaint thread at /r/employedbykohls a while back, and it shot up to the most popular thread of all time lmao. Of course bootlicking mods deleted it, citing... arguing in the comments! One is literally named KOHLSMAN1999 lmao. He considers "bootlicker" to be "hate speech." BroketheMorning also deleted some shit of mine but he seems much cooler and much more amenable to agitation so plz donut harass

Like, seriously guys, if you're a trained IWW/other union organizer, if you walk into a Kohl's and can get people to start talking to you, 9/10 will basically be like "fuck this place, tell me more." Please help.
