Running a small business would be SO much easier in a country with a rudimentary social safety net.

@mwlucas Always was jealous of those folks consulting in Canada.

@craigmaloney @mwlucas it's a much higher regulatory and taxation bar to get started, and they definitely have ways of making it fuckin ssssuuuuuuucccck if you fail, but i don't think i've seen any small business owner die of a preventable illness because of it

@carcinopithecus @craigmaloney

I refuse to hire people.

Because I refuse to be responsible for their lives.

I want to know that if life gives me a pandemic, I could lay off the flunky and know they won't starve or die of preventable illness.
