Tim Gurner, a property developer and founder of The Gurner Group, said Tuesday that he wants to see unemployment rise because employees have become arrogant since the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We need to see pain in the economy. We need to remind people that they work for the employer, not the other way around,” said Gurner, whose net worth is over half a billion dollars. The rest of his commentary follows a similar trend.
“I think the problem that we’ve had is that people decided they didn’t really want to work so much any more through COVID, and that has had a massive issue on productivity,” he continued, noting that people “have been paid a lot to do not too much in the last few years, and we need to see that change.”
No, seriously. He literally said that, and a bunch of other crazy crap. Check it out:

But there was a unique group of individuals — not naming names *cough* JP Morgan *cough* the Rockefellers — who realized they could get super rich by normalizing a 40-hour work week that took women away from their children, and forced all of us to lose the knowledge and skills to survive and thrive in unity with the natural world.
These changes came during the Industrial Revolution and start of the 20th century. And finally, we’re breaking free from that tyranny (those of us who want to, anyway). (RELATED: You’re Not Poor. You’re Financially Illiterate, And That’s Your Fault)
So … bummer for you, Tim, ya slicked-back Bond-villain-looking alien person, We The People don’t want to be slaves to a globalist orthodoxy that doesn’t work for us. Your statements are a cringe joke, and I hope your employees all choose unemployment over you and your horrific personality, so you realize that you are absolutely nothing without them.
