Correcting Disparities:

"I live on the border of two states with extremely different minimum wage laws. I worked for a company that moved over the border from the state with the higher (though still not sufficient) minimum wage to the other state. We were able to keep our jobs but we had to take a pay cut. Meanwhile, the boss bought a new house in California and kept her house here as well.

During the process of the move, I happened to find a Post-It note with the admin credentials to the payroll system. Every week for the few months I stayed on after the move, I gave myself and my co-workers a few extra hours of pay to make up for the money they were trying to save.

Nothing happened to me. And it felt like a good deed."

LB: solidarity is much better than these tiny individual acts of sabotage, but “post-left” individualism doesn’t have to be a dead end.
