You’ve got a couple options when it comes to turning a profit:
- Underpay workers
- Overvalue the product
Modern capitalism does both (alongside a subset of the middle class that gets dramatically overpaid, such as programmers, and gratuitous expenditures such as salary bonuses). Whichever way you slice it, though, you get inflation and increasing inequality.
Yep! Once “everyone can code,” owners can finally do what they’ve always wanted to do: underpay programmers. https://switter.at/web/statuses/101868999452217767
