47 It’s not just that the unfavorable treatments we worry about (racism, sexism, heterosexism) do not themselves create economic inequality; it’s also that economic inequality is not exactly produced by something we can plausibly call unfavorable treatment. In the United States today, racism and sexism are capitalism functioning badly. The intensification of class difference is what you get when capitalism is working well. Employers who discriminate are behaving both unethically and ineffi- 27 28 chaPter one ciently; employers who exploit are just trying to make a profit—it has nothing to do with their (or our) feelings about whose lives are more or less grievable.

Unlike racism, however, the right amount of unemployment is good for profits. Indeed, it’s good for capitalism itself. Thus the inequality enabled by unemployment is, in a capitalist economy, a useful inequality, and the question of our attitude toward the unemployed (unlike the question of our attitude toward the victims of racism or sexism or any kind of discrimination) is both complicated and beside the point. It’s complicated because the closer we are to thinking of ourselves as members of the working class, the more our empathy for the unemployed (they get no wages) gets mixed with resentment of them (because they get no wages, we get lower wages).

It’s complicated because the closer we are to thinking of ourselves as members of the working class, the more our empathy for the unemployed (they get no wages) gets mixed with resentment of them (because they get no wages, we get lower wages). It’s beside the point because how we feel about the unemployed has no connection at all to anything we might do about unemployment. Capitalism likes it, whether we do or not. That’s why it’s important that Binschtok’s pictures of unemployment don’t have any actual unemployed people in them.
