Competition is driving down our wages and raising our working hours, I've had enough. My children couldn't afford to eat today, my youngest has dynesty and we can't afford medicine for. And while my family starves, we're forced to worker ever-increasing hours in dangerous conditions. It's time to STRIKE.



Our demands:

1. Fair wages to all bitcoin miners.
2. More safety regulations
3. Limited working hours
4. Weekends and holidays
5. Pension scheme
6. Unions
7. Company car

Until then my computer is turned off. proof

I think alot of people are thinking of bitcoins in a different manner than what was intended (IMO).
Isn't the idea to have an alternative, de-regulated currency that's 'free' to trade?
If your mining for Profit in USD that kind of defeats the purpose.

I got into bitcoins around march. I've mined. I've bought stuff. I've sold stuff.
Only once did I ever 'sell' my coins. And that was really to just see how the exchange worked.
I'll continue to mine albeit I'm in no way a power house, even if I can't make a profit in my countries denominated currency.
As long as bitcoins aren't a 'dead' idea I'll continue to mine 'at a lose' (I live in FL and it's hot as shit here in the summer) and keep my client running for that extra node.

Hopefully one day bitcoins will become the norm and i can anonymously give funding to ideas/endeavors without worry of recourse.
And not pay a crazy percent for transactions. ( i think last year I donated over 1000$ to paypal for fees for something that in no way should cost that much).

This is obviously a joke -- or the OP was drunk.

Maybe both!

Not sure what the point of this thread is. Only a select few miners actually support their entire income via btc mining. Go ahead though, turn your rig off and see if I (or anyone else) cares.

Fair wages to all miners?
There are only so many blocks being generated at a constant rate, and with more people mining it has to be split across everyone

Socialism

One of the consequences of such notions as "entitlements" is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.

I got hit in the balls once. And let me tell you, it wasn't funny!   Lips sealed

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Communism would be no wages. Fair-wages is an oximoron in communism, as wages can never be fair for a comunist.
