This is coming from a place of making a living wage but

‘Capital stealing the value of my labor’ doesn’t feel nearly as important as capital stealing my LIFE.

40 hours of my week + recovery time. My education choices. Where I can live. Whether I own a pet. Capitalism limits all the wonderful things I could do in life.

I know money can acquire some of these things. I just think the phrase ‘capitalism steals the value of your labor’ isn’t communicating well how much capitalism steals from us.

@queeranarchism Compound this with the fact that many workers (40% according to Graeber) don't actually produce any value at all with their labor. I think the amount of pointless work and Bullshit Jobs is a point we need to supplement surplus value with in our messaging
