@melissasage @whiskeysailor I don't think China is economically left. They're nominally communist, but if you've ever been to China or at least known a number of Chinese people, you quickly learn that they are an oligarchy, too.

For the grim and grave travails of the kitchen do I shirk,
“With a pie of cheeses shredded, thou,” I said, “bring sticks a-breaded,
Slices plenty, sausage sizzling, carried with a knowing smirk—
Let me tip you with a tenner so I don't seem like a jerk!”
Quoth the pizza man,
a male counterpart told me he was making $10,000 more than me a year for the same job. he then helped me prepare to ask for a salary increase. I got it. had we not discussed our salaries, I would have never known.
not discussing salaries only benefits the employer. https://twitter.com/andreagonram/status/1137036775715745792
Still confused as to why I need to put my food in the oven at 120 degrees. 🤔
