If everyone on earth got paid $60k a year, we need 5 earths to keep living this way. In this society, people are getting shocked when they grow into adulthood as they realize the real world: Oppress or be oppressed, because the earth is screwed. There is a shock that is normalized as people grow into adulthood and the workforce. People study medicine and engineering to get paid 90k a year. What is the point of a minimum wage if the earth is dying anyways and we will go extinct? Let me get what I want at other people’s expense as I study something that is less in supply. Supply and demand for medical jobs and engineering. It makes sense, knowing that we are all screwed.
