A thing:

A thing, in a village in Punjab. Not perfect, but it's a thing.

Happy Friday.

Quote:
"Of those who make less under their contracts, they mostly tossed those who had been openly critical of the president," the source said. "It seems to have been a cost saving measure, but the deciding factor between any two people seems to have been who liked the president and who didn't."

Okayama buses strike by continuing to run and refusing to take anyone’s money

They do things differently in Japan.

So going fully on strike when a new, cheaper competitor has just started might not really support their aim of job security.

They do things differently in Japan.

Quote:
As a result, Ryobi drivers are feeling threatened and are asking management for improvements to their job security under the added competition. It would seem Ryobi was less than enthusiastic to accommodate and a strike was declared.
So maybe, maybe not. The technique comes from Cleveland though, so a large proportion of the origins likely involves a lot of "MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, BUDDY".

Can we call it cultural appropriation?
