I think if social media doesn't exist and most of the striking tech workers' salaries aren't that high, they will not have gave a crap about the causes they are protesting. I think most of these protestors are really doing it just to market themselves on social media. And if they stand out enough, they figure they might get better opportunities from people who see them via social media. Likely they probably don't fully know the cause they are "protesting" against.
The GM and autoworkers, I do think their protests are definitely valid. Since it's for their own and their families well being. And we all know the U.S healthcare and labor system is crooked.
That's what Im saying man !....The GM autoworkers protests makes sense...at least they have objectives.
But the "climate change" tech protests WTF is that ?
I understand the children/teenagers are impressionable and will follow trends even if they have no idea of the practical applications...but I expected grown adults to have more sense than this.
You cannot "protest for climate change" ....its too abstract...its just a nonsense non-sequetor excuse to lower productivity ! What do they seriously expect to gain from the protest ? They have no purpose, no goal, no directive.
1) You can protest for your employer to use more energy efficient, cars.
2) You can protest for your employer to use a better filtration or garbage disposal system.
3) You can protest for your employer to add solar panels to their infrastructure, etc...
You can protest for any number of specific goals
for climate resilience...but you cannot just "protest for climate change
