    General CommentI don't know if it's about communism... I always thought it was about the working class. It starts out with the orchestra just tuning up and making random noises, and then the whip cracks ("Minimum wage!" and suddenly there is coordinated music. I think it's sort of funny.

    General CommentThe cheesiness of the music itself kind of makes me think of the introduction to a work training video. If there were a music video, I'd imagine it being a montage of a day in the life of a retail worker, with the relentlessly peppy synth melodies being contrasted with all the stress, drudgery, and potential hazards.

    General Commentthis ones pretty simple too me....

    think about it...the less people are paid the harder the job actually is. Honestly when is the last time you heard a CEO complaining about his feet and back hurting? The less you make the more you ache.
