    There will always be a need of someone to do that work though.

    In the example given by the show, he got £2 an hour, 13 hour day, no breaks or toilet, no insurance, badly programmed routes, aggressive/ unreasonable management. What is this to you? fair?
    That is the thing, not all jobs you can just pick up and crack on. Some take months to train and years to fully grasp, even low level jobs.

    No, all the signs that you need to find a better career/job.

    Smart people have a salary and put themselves in a position as a single point of failure. This gives the employee the upper hand.
    Employers should be forced to pay employees a reasonable wage at the end of the day, smart or not. Sure they can find another job (not that easy though) but then someone else will take that same sh*tty job they've just left and we're back to square one with another person.

    Smart people do not always have a salary. What if the said person is has mental health issues? Or is disabled and can't work or is very limited in the kind of job they can do?

    But in the case provided Amazon were not the employers, the staff were considered self employed. Which in itself is actually wrong.

    The 1% argument is so boring, Clearly when I say smart people, I mean smart capable of working people since this is a thread about working. So mentioning people that can't work or are limited is ****ing pointless.
