@ILoveCamNewton3 @brandonsreads @daveloach2 There is a union, actually. It's not the best union it could be, but it's real and it has a lot of members.

I'm actually here because it's incredibly difficult to get health insurance for cancer surviors, which my family is exclusively made up of. I don't want to die.
@ILoveCamNewton3 @brandonsreads @daveloach2 My family faced 2 life threatening medical events during 2020, so this is not some hypothetical.

There is no ethical consumption under capitalism and I'm prepared to resign if it leads to significant impact. Like a lot of people here.
The money is good, but no amount of money can sustainably buy health care and the majority of my career I've been working below market rate to pioneer consumer advocacy stuff.

The success rate of that work is sadly low. Simple Bank and Level Money both failed to make an impact.
Ironically my actual takehome comp went slightly down at this job, not up.

Self empyment is better, but only group negotiation can make American health care workable.

Let's change that. Aggressively, if necessary.
