Permanently Temporary: The Truth About Temp Labor

The human resource industry is one level above human trafficking. We allow one and don’t allow another.

Super warehouses reside in the Inland Empire, a massive warehouse area 1 hour east of LA in CA,  It is the largest such area in the world. UPS, FEDEX, Walmart, Home Depot, Amazon all serve their (growing online) customers from here.

The workers are all paid minimum wage, non-union, and essentially work at Chinese-ified slave wages. Ironically, most are Mexican nationals (legal or illegal, I don’t know or don’t care either).

Interesting how (CIA sponsored?) Amazon is building a super warehouse in NJ to launch Amazon Fresh, as they move into same-day groceries.

This video really illustrates corporatism at its best. I don’t have a solution to it, but it’s a sad commentary on what happens when we go global and harmonize to the lowest common denominator.

It’s like starting a country all over again, and the only direction for a once mighty country like the USA is down.

The China Study Community

ABOUT THE CHINA STUDY COMMUNITY WEBSITE

WHO IS IT FOR?

T. Colin Campbell’s The China Study created a movement in the way people consider their diets. While the Internet features many great meeting places for the plant-based community, there has yet to be a one stop shop. The China Study Community website launched with the hopes of filling this niche and becoming the leading source of news for the plant-based community. Each day, you’ll find links to news stories, event information, recipes, reviews, and more from the top influencers in the plant-based movement, including specific information on The China Study and Colin Campbell-endorsed books published by BenBella Books.

3000 people die a day

…in the USA from cancer.

If we believe these numbers, which I think may even be low, Why aren’t people up in arms and demanding a solution?

Probably because the cancer industry is like Richard Gage’s 9/11 traveling road show – controlled opposition. We think that because we fly pink ribbons and hand over billions they are taking care of this problem.

We need to stop being terrorised by fake news and start taking care of a real threat: our food health.

“Rich” people

Not sure which are real and which are placeholders from someone else’s worth/enterprise, but here’s the current lineup.

I wonder who the “real” families that control the world are, and what they’re worth.

The U.S. and China are now home to a similar number of billionaires, according toForbes’ latest billionaires list. Russia is also a strong presence in a list that encompasses US$6.4-trillion in global wealth.

Even if you can’t be the richest person in the world, it’s still pretty cool to be the richest person in your country.

Many billionaires have held the title of richest in their country for a number of years, but as always, there are a number of new titleholders this year.

Magical chip future

Disneyworld is a testing ground for society at large. Here’s the latest in herd management technology.

MyMagic+ promises far more radical change. It’s a sweeping reservation and ride planning system that allows for bookings months in advance on a website or smartphone app. Bracelets called MagicBands, which link electronically to an encrypted database of visitor information, serve as admission tickets, hotel keys, and credit or debit cards; a tap against a sensor pays for food or trinkets. The bands have radio frequency identification (RFID) chips—which critics derisively call spychips because of their ability to monitor people and things.

We recently tried the system out. It’s yet another technological double edged sword: it’s quick and convenient, but is it worth the surrender of your privacy?

While in the Kingdom, I attempted to buy a banana. The magical Mickey head scanner was broken at the vendor’s cart. Without cash, ID, or other currency, I could not obtain the fruit. At one point the chip scanner wouldn’t let me in my room. One wrong keystroke and your chip could be deactivated, rendering you useless.

This will be your future, and it won’t be long.
