”I graduated from high school in 1968. Few women in the work force and none of the effeciencies that came with computerization. At the age of 18, with no practical skills or experience, I could go out and get a job that would support a family and allow me to buy a house. “Womens Liberation” was happening, and we wondered whether the increased workforcw would lead to a 20 hr work week.
But people are stuggling more now than they were in 1968. Where is the money going? Anybody who supports the billionaires politically is either a sociopathic billionaire or an idiot.”
