Season of Plenty

It’s always this time of year when you hear shit like, “Give other families a happy, healthy holiday,” over the intercom at a grocery store. Followed by some spiel about donating your food–in my case–to fellow employees. We hear all this bullshit about making the holiday season special, and it just raises my stomach because if the companies that tell us to give food to each other would just pay us enough money to buy our own fucking food everyone would have a great holiday–but no. Why give another cog enough dignity to provide for their family when a worker’s poverty can be exploited to show the community how much the company cares?
