I must say, as a fan of Terry Pratchett’s “Diskworld” novels, I prefer “Witches Abroad”. To hear that a head of Domino’s Pizza in Britain is pissing at the British government for tightening immigration laws because he can’t hire as much cheap help now really gives the concept of “Ugly
American Capitalist” new meaning.
It also boggles the mind that here in America, where Domino relentlessly advertises their wares, the scream is on to tighten borders and keep OUT more immigrants. One assumes that here in the land of
wage-slaves capitalism-is-god, there is plenty of sufficiently cheap labor to be had.
I stopped buying Domino’s crummy pizza way back when, over 25 years ago —the founder of Domino’s put out an interview about how sick he was of poor people bitching they couldn’t eat well enough. His advice? Go to a feed store for animal feed and buy a 50 pound bag of milk powder for much less than human grocery stores! Right! Just use animal feed to feed your kids, you serfs, and quit bitching about hunger. Oh, those compassionate capitalist conservatives, eh?
Besides, we have plenty of rich asshats here at home, right? Like the oh-so-splendidly generous Bill Gates, whose “charitable” foundation helps poor, poor, benighted folks like Walmart and MacDonalds. And Exxon. Just another case of rich asshats looking after their own.
