42% of what...lol. Certainly not the working population of the United States. Average median income in late 2018 across all demographics and age groups was $55k a year. That's over hundreds of millions of people.

This whole discussion opened up when people started whining after I brought up how Denmark, a capitalistic country, has the highest standard of living in the world. It is a lot easier to fix the problems we have than to burn down everything in favor of any form of communism. Then OH and others started bringing up their own situations into this and I slapped them down because they're irrelevant to the broader point I was making about the viability of capitalism for the vast majority of people.

"terrible working conditions" for somewhere around 3% to 5% of the total working population of the United States is solvable through policy changes, not by setting fire to everything and everyone.

I already pointed out why that chart doesn't mean anything. Go get some real stats from the BLS or something with data that isn't from the Obama admin years with NO references.

Neat! That still doesn't refute the prominence of poor working conditions in America.

I never said those conditions didn't exist. OH and I are debating to which degree of the working population it actually effects.

You just dismissed them as irrelevant because they impact a minority of Americans. Much better.

All the more reason to look at improving policy instead of pulling the rug out from everyone, no?

A broken system doesn't have success stories of any kind. Hence the word "broken". America, both in the past and right now, has plenty. I'm all for policies and other ideas that improve the conditions that allow those success stories to happen even more frequently.

This is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever read.
