shipping troubles, "worker shortages"
I'm imagining the absolute pandemonium that must be happening right now inside logistics hubs, and I've got to say, I do not envy the logistics workers.
This isn't just a narrow problem.
This is what a general strike looks like.
And thanks to decades of concerted dismantling of labor unions and worker organizations, there's no one for the bosses to ask "why will no one work?"
If we had labor unions, the unions would tell the bosses why they aren't working. There would be lists of demands.
Instead, we just get unfilled positions in a system dependent on infinite growth, and bosses declaring that they don't understand why no one wants to work for them.
Figure it out fucko. That's what you wanted, right? To not have anyone tell you how to run your own companies? Well, here it is. You got it. You can figure out what the workers want yourself.

It's that time of the year again.
I've been using Linux for about 30 years. Mine was the first installation, given Linus didn't install it on his computer, he grew it on top of an existing Minix install, replacing it piecemeal.
My first contribution is over 30 years ago, about April, 1991, the sprintf (now snprintf) function in the kernel.
It's been a fun ride.
