Unskilled labor is a myth that employers use as an excuse to pay workers less.

Any labor takes some amount of skill to do. Just because quote-unquote "anyone can do it" doesn't make it unskilled. And what's more, many "unskilled jobs" are imperative to our society and its functioning. They are as important as, if not more than, the work of managers, executives, and "higher-ups."

Fuck anyone who puts you down by telling you that your work is unskilled or deserves to be exploited more. Your work is valuable. And so are you.

blinks. So, now, Mastodon just leans hard into the dark patterns, and eats up half of my notifications column with a thing demanding to enable desktop notifications, and no way to dismiss it. 🙀

To add insult to injury, the annoying demand is laid out in a way that's more attention-grabbing than toots and such:

bright blue button, with an all-caps label;
different typography than the surrounding elements;
wider margins, which makes it pop out more (and eat more space) : even though “Never miss a thing” is only 1px bigger than display names, it seems much bigger due to its ample breathing room.
