If highly-paid skilled workers spent less time at work, companies could hire more people. This is all it takes to fix our economic problems.
But economists won't support this because they fear retaliation by the corporations and individuals who control most of the world's wealth, or they are being paid to advocate for the rich.
Maybe one person could have an "accident". But they can't kill everyone.
With a simple system like paying skilled workers 1.2x their normal rate for the first 24 hours, and 0.7x after that, people would not feel they are being unfair to colleagues by working less.
Don't think this is not your problem. This is everyone's problem, due to crime and taxes to fund welfare, unemployment benefits and even prisons.
Our target is to change the world.
