The grand lie of capitalism
In this clip Redacted Tonight discusses how a Fox News clip accidentally revealed this grand lie. On Fox an injured fast food worker was praised for his rugged individualism for working with an arm and neck injury from a car accident to afford Christmas presents. What this inadvertently reveals though is a system where this poor kid has to work after an injury because he's paid so little in the first place to take off work, and because these fast food employers don't provide paid medical leave. Yeah, that's something to celebrate you callous bastards.
