Roger’s note: human beings are both producers and consumers. As consumers we enjoy a good bargain. As producers we NEED a decent job. Collectively labor should always trump consumption, although we are seduced by lower prices to betray the solidarity essential to the human community of producers (i.e. those of us who work for a living, which is the 99 percent). This cartoon shows us graphically how capitalist economy is destructive of the human community, in this case globally.
