: To close, just about everyone I know who are doing good today (including my father) started at the bottom wrung and worked their way up to better jobs and better pay. I'm posting based on this mindset because that's what I've witnessed.
But this is what we mean when we say the IWW's & similar ideas won't work. People naturally want to "do good" - improve their OWN situation. OK it's selfish, but that's how people are. It's all very well for the IWW et. al. to have their ideas - but the ones who are supposed to put it into practice are too busy looking after themselves, trying to get a foot up on the rung and step up out of the mire.
