Hey, I'll take this level of support to start with. So what would someone need to support in order to give more power to the workers (outside of "eating the rich" - pretty sure that's frowned upon in here)? You'd want to take healthcare off the negotiating table (so that bosses can't cut healthcare as a threat against worker demands), and provide some survivable baseline for people so that bosses can't effectively threaten your life when they threaten your job.
It sounds nice in concept I suppose.
It would give workers much stronger options to negotiate their working conditions, making the workplace much less modelled after a monarchy.
I don't think these are unworkable goals both sides can work toward.
Honestly I'm a swing voter, I've gone red, blue, red, red. At certain points in my life, certain things sounded really great. When Obama was running, I was 18 and free college sounded REALLY GOOD for me at the time. As did Obamacare, since I wasn't working and coudn't afford healthcare of any kind. In 2016, I had my first stable job ever in my life, my own place, my own healthcare (through work), and at the time, I simply found Trump more appealing than Clinton. I will say this, I'm open to being sold on Socialism, but as of right now, I'm defaulting to Capitalism cause it's what I've always known all my life.
