FTC Announces Rule Banning Noncompetes
  • My personal highlight:

    The Commission also finds that instead of using noncompetes to lock in workers, employers that wish to retain employees can compete on the merits for the worker’s labor services by improving wages and working conditions.

    Today, the Federal Trade Commission issued a final rule to promote competition by banning noncompetes nationwide, protecting the fundamen

    I haven't found the exact date, but it'll be effective 130 120 days after publishing in the federal register.

    I'm looking for an affordable router (att fiber modem) to install opendns for kids devices, nordvpn for the network, and pierce the walls of my 3400 sq ft brick and wood home. Any suggestions?
  • This is what you want, op. Realistically, covering a space like this means running some cable and using it to connect everything. You'll have one router that connects to the fiber gateway then probably two or more access points connected to the router, those can be old routers if you have one or more laying around, or just WAPs (wireless access points).

  • Remember you can join any instance and still talk to everyone
  • As to why, basically anyone is allowed to run their own copy of lemmy and some people actually enjoy doing it. There is more nuance of course. For instance, the owner can block other people's instances for whatever reason so no one on their instance sees content from the other instance and people from the other instance can't comment or vote in their communities.

    There are definitely pros and cons to this approach, but the cool thing about it is the whole thing is back in the hands of real people and not owned by a bunch of investors.

  • What makes a great sci-fi story?
  • I completely agree with this take. Good sci-fi examines and questions what it is to be human.

    I get the enjoyment of the alt-technology focused works that are more of space engineering thought experiments. Those Weir-esk books are totally valid, and I enjoy them enough, but I really think the works that will stand the test of time are those that present worlds with different circumstances and examine humanity in that context.

  • Curb Your Enthusiasm and Crusader Kings III. Sounds good tbh, I'd watch that
  • So, I'm either Zelda and the Witcher, which I'm here for, or if you count the pro-urbanist propaganda I sink my time into on YouTube then its just SimCity: Hyrule which, let's be real, would sell like Oxycotin in West Virginia.

  • Liberal Economics be like
  • Good response! Thanks for the further reading! I was never an economics student, this post just felt like disingenuous US political arguments so I appreciate someone with a real background chiming in!

  • Liberal Economics be like
  • So if your question is in good faith let's break it down a little.

    Capitalism is a economic system. It may have some liberal or conservative slant inherently, but in theory there isn't anything implicit.

    A liberal or conservative economic policy would be how you manage that economic system. Liberal economic policy should tend to favor rules and regulations to account for the flaws of unchecked capitalism. Conservative policy tends towards less regulation, relying on the market system to set prices for goods and services.

    Personally, I'm liberal because the ultimate goal for any capitalist is a monopoly. Often in that situation, you get an unequal power dynamic that allows a company to stay ahead of competition or bully them out of the market, preventing the market from setting prices. Additionally liberal policy tries to regulate negative externalities, such as companies dumping chemicals in a river (such as when the Ohio river caught on fire leading to the creation of the EPA). Frankly, these are real problems inherent in capitalism that conservative policy doesn't address because it makes the rich richer. It's pretty disingenuous to argue that liberal policy is there to benefit the rich.

    Anyway, that's a super basic breakdown. None of that is say there isn't corruption from the rich and greedy in politics. Frankly, money equating to political influence is crazy and has allowed the weathly to completely shape world policy. If you want change, look to rank choice voting systems or other ways to move more choice and power back to voters.

  • Hotel > AirBNB
  • I have to take issue with your assertion about hotel staff being unionized (although I recognize that could be true for your region). I've worked in hotels before and the reason they stay "cheap" is because they pay the cleaning and non-customer-facing staff the absolute bare minimum.

    I'm coming from Midwestern America which certainly colors this experience, but in my case the housekeeping staff was made up almost exclusively of non-native English speakers. They were paid minimum, or close to it, and had room quotas that left them with 15-20 to "clean" a room.

    On the events side of the business, the guys who set up tables and chairs were almost exclusively young, poor black men. The hotel only ran the air conditioning in those ballrooms when guests were present so it was regularly 80-85 f in those rooms with minimum wage staff doing manual labor.

    Please understand I don't have any love for the investment vehicle model that has taken over air-bnb, but hotels are by far the most disgusting socioeconomic workplace I've been in. I really don't have the money for air-bnb, but I'll certainly take some person paying off their rental over large corporation exploiting unskilled workers and immigrants.
