These are cool! But can you help me, I don’t really get something about the last strip. I get that it’s talking about the good old days from your title, but what does he mean by ‘job creators give lucrative make-work’?
“make-work” designates jobs or activities which keep people busy but don’t bring much value. “job creators” is a term used by right-wingers to talk about business owners and CEOs.
Oh it makes way more sense now. Thanks!
Basically, ‘busy-work’. Which is what I assumed it said at first. But it means the same thing.
