Socio-Economic Balancing Act

.

Shut the doors, seal the windows and let no one speak in certain areas - the hurry up and be still strategy. Opportunity inequalities abound, but must by all means remain invisible.
.

Poor women  in low wage jobs is the gender-wage gap affecting Black and Brown service workers. 1.5 trillion earned by major mega-corporations was possible because of monopolies resultung from a stay at home economy. Wage inequalities increased. That trend will continue. Scratch 1999 - insert 2999.

.

ppp and SNAP plus $1,200.00 staved off collapse among non-billion dollar wage earners. Therefore, wages will plummet with women dominated service jobs that will fail or be struggling for survival experiencing down-pressure on pay raises. Hey uber privileged, it dies not work if wirkers and weakth creaters are under capitalized. Taxes must rise, there are no more fat waists to tighten belts around. White supremacy and covid-19 are both plagues to be immunized against. It will take time.
.

It's a tangle, but it seems wages will remain stalled or lowered which gets us to balance. In a long recent  past, education did not match data and skills needs. The unemployed - 1.2 million applied for benefits the week of 01-06-21 are not only the low wage earners, many are the savings exhausted low-middle wage earners with businesses, mortgages, and families. Remember, the pre-pandemic economy was closing down from the wide wage and earnings gap. Prosperity for the elect will not be back for long years. China will see to that. Poor people are pissed off you guys. Men will be rehired first - so much for vagina liberation.

.

Econ-social safety net means a new tax structure, high wages, higher long term unemployment benefits.  Too much Corporate mega wealth is corrosive to democratic institutions in a Republic. They erect self-protective structures. With cash comes power and invasion in the political arena to maintain advantage and status.  That will not change long term. Competition to be billionaires will thrive. Moving toward a $20.00 minimum wage and more unions will bring balance, the forced equilibrum for a Capitalist country to succeed.
.

Guess who is broke. Plutacracies never thrive without the majority of citizens working at no-win wages. All of them need pay and benefit hikes. Anything else leads full speed toward social insurgency. Marches and rioting in the usa congress; the capital rotunda was gassed. Why so few arrests? Lawyers, doctors, teachers, polititions et al were among what was believed to be white and blue collar redneck racists under erected crosses and confedflags. Not close.
.

Except for the ubers, everyone, all races and all classes, are feeling the pinch. Raise taxes AND wages - the only way to restore equity and prosperity. The richest players have to agree or we are doomed. Otherwse, A Depression will be the new plague.
