I am not trying to troll you. I get we don't have the same political beliefs but I still like and respect you.
Therein lies the problem with discussing politics. Our values aren't even in the same stratosphere. As a reasonable human being I fail to see any logic in your opinions or actions. We are reaching a tipping point as a nation. This isn't a meme. This is life. Everything happening on every level of the current political landscape in this country has affected not only the world but my own personal life immensely. America is in crisis and you just want to go back to smelling farts. This election is like a desperate battle with only one honest to fucking God path to victory. I cannot talk to you and carry an honest respect for your opinion.

What ended that practice?
The 1938 Congress, which was heavy Democrat, passed a law that a Democrat president, FDR, signed

That created a minimum wage

Other than that, jobs can do what they want

Even in a union they can fire you, they just need a reason

And they're great at making them up

Alabama is an "at will" state. They don't even need a reason here.

Just gonna leave this quote from Harlan Ellison here. I don't know if he actually said it but it was long attributed to him.

You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant

And that's the crux of the topic at hand here. If you equivocate the uniformed opinion with the supported argument you reduce the value, the effort of the discussion.

We should all endeavor to elevate our understanding. By "doubling down" or insulating in a belief or ideology, you just stunt your own growth, whether intellectually, artistically, or emotionally.
