Continued fallout from all of the MIC work the big tech firms are working on.

Good. When government and defense contracts are the most lucrative things, then that's all the big companies focus on. I was seeing something similar in 2008 at big tech companies.

I refuse to make anything for the MIC. Unionization needs to make a comeback as well. I guess it failed before because of propaganda, as well as many of the unions heads actually just being corrupted and bought out by the company, which makes the union just a wing of the company, not a force acting against it. All that led to the dissolution of unions (except for public employees ironically, like teachers and police). Plus with the oversupply of labor right now people are afraid to push back against their employers, lest they instantly be replaced.
