With the way the world works in 2019, Capitalism isn't working for individuals

It still works for generating wealth on a national level or corporate level yes, but it isn't increasing the standard of living for average individuals

It worked for individuals back during the 1980s and 1990s, and before that, but not in 2019

reason being, the job market demands too much, which is almost impossible for regular humans to keep up with

----
too much experience? overqualified, we don't want to pay you that much

college degree? overqualified, we don't want to pay you

fresh graduate? not enough experience

applying to entry level jobs? we require 3 years experience

over age 40? we're not sure if you can keep up with current tech and society 
----

back in the olden days, Capitalism provided a good living, if you were a good employee, you would have a job for 40 years, where you would eventually move up the ranks

today? nope.

today, it's about hopping from job to job, and you need to keep learning new skills and technologies, since society and tech moves at lightning speed

too young? you're too inexperienced

once you're older? you're a dinosaur, and they don't want you 

even if you are doing well now in the job market, that doesn't mean you always will, especially since you could get fired anytime

wage slaving  = death

wage slaving is fine

it lets you live life

everything in life requires labour, especially getting out of the rat race and turning to entrepreneurship or subsistence farming

the problem is not being able to do labour, so you don't have a means to survive

true

but we need a UBI by then

people say go into trades..yeah yeah, you need a few hundred thousand people to do that, not tens of millions
