Why #freetransit is a better fight than #livingwage

industryweek : "McDonald’s already replaced order takers with automated kiosks in expensive European markets, and the “$15 per hour” and living wage movements in the U.S. means that kiosks have started to replace workers in the U.S. too. "
The end of cheap oil means high unemployment and low wages. But that doesn't mean a frontal attack is the best option. There are dozens of ways to take back a wage increase. Automation is just one of them. And what is the point of trying to get more out of a system that is based on waste and subsidy. First we should stop wasting energy on cars and sprawl.
