"What I am saying is that prematurely blaming Trump when he isn't even in office is stupid."
He's not blaming Trump. He's blaming a society that likes Trump, and he's blaming his, and -- given your misguided sympathy and deliberate? misreading of the article -- possibly your, hate-filled rhetoric that how much you are paid is directly linked to how hard you work, and if an employee is paid badly and then fired, somehow it's all their fault.
This is possibly the worst facet of American culture, and I hope that it does not continue leaking out into the civilized world.
