COVID-19 is exposing a lot of truths.
The free market is useless in any kind of crisis. It is barely functional in terms of mobilising labour and resources in the best conditions, it is flat out useless when things are tough - and things are going to get tough as the climate worsens and the oil runs out.
It turns out that the people paid the least in society are the most important, and many highly regarded jobs just aren't all that important.

@jospanner jobs only? I'm decently paid & don't think our company's useful.

@patter If we got rid of this silly work ethic that demands that so many of us do useless things or else starve, we could work less and live more.
