Even if this law were to pass. California governor bet you will veto it. He got to cater to the 1% if he plans run for president.

Your a fucking asshole. Did you watch the video? They had to have bachelor’s degree and 3 years of experience to even work there. On top of that living in Austin Texas. A fucking expensive city. Fuck Google and fuck you for not standing up for your fellow workers.

Guess your some rich prick that doesn’t know what work is.

Any company that trys this will lose a shit ton of employees to a competitor who will offer lunch and rest breaks. Hell thier is no federal law giving workers breaks now and my state doesn’t have it either. Yet every company offers lunch and some offer breaks. Fuck this bill but workers will still get those breaks or they will go work somewhere else.

Don’t think this should be an awe moment. Bears and people shouldn’t mix and even on accident a bear can cause you serious damage.

And Walmart actually benefits double because of it. Because said employees spend thier checks and food stamps right back into the company.

You think with the rise of automation and definitely with AI tools men in India shouldn’t have to work that many hours.

Exactly I spend more down time at my job then I ever had in my life. Even though my job can’t be done at home we literally could be open only 6 hours a day and still make the same amount of money.

This how much free time I have. I have read 32 John Grisham novels in the Last two months that is peepered in with other novels. It’s ridiculous the amount of commuting tolls and gas I pay and I might altogether work literally 3 of the 9 hours I am at work.

My company says we don’t sell 30 million in flooring in next 6 months we might have to close our doors. But in the next two weeks they are flying all the branch managers to Chicago, putting in a fancy hotels and wine and dine them. They already did the same thing with the sales reps. I asked If they couldn’t have these meetings on Zoom. My boss didn’t like that.

Fucking new CEO one of those guys who last 5 companies he ran them into the ground. Already does weekly Zoom meetings I see no reason company that apparently running out of money had to close 20 branches suddenly as all the money to throw around wining and dining upper management.

That message is spot on. It is one of the dumbest ideas capitalism brings you. Remember in the 50’s they post articles in magazines how the future was going be all relaxation and robots doing all the work.

But between Baby Boomers and conservatives along with the nature of capitalism we get this hellscape instead.

We actually have most states going backwards on child labor laws anything other than raise wages and fix this horrible economy that favors only the super wealthy.

It would be nice to have curtains that absorb street noise.

Some custom curtain tailors offer a fabric that claims to be soundproof. It’s a little pricey. Not absurdly pricey, but it’s also a bit hard to be confident that such thin fabrics can absorb much sound (they claim 20%).

I would prefer to try hacks. I’ve heard that thick furniture moving pads absorb sound well. I’ve also heard that fiberous fabrics can be effective. For the moment, I probably want to pass on edgy ideas like egg cartons. Maybe later on those. What fabrics are decent for reducing sound? Specifically, I’m wondering about carpets or painter’s drop cloths. Not the simple white canvas drop cloths, but the thicker drop cloths may out of recycled fabrics.

I like to know to. Definitely need something that can block out majority if not all the street sounds.
