Wages to be recalculated based on how useful you will be after the apocalypse

Your value to the post-apocalyptic world will determine your wages from now on, according to reports this afternoon.

“Top-level CEOs can fuck off as well. Nobody is going to give a shit about Amazon when they’re trying their best to hit rats with a slingshot for food.”

While the upper echelons of sport, business and politics all reacted to the news negatively, there was celebration among the one or two people who still know how to do actual things.

“My new wage is 9 million a year,” beamed carpenter, Jay Cooper.

2. There will be little life left on earth after any "apocalypse".

When the spent fuel pools of nuclear plants lose power and catch fire, it will be a very bleak world.

There are enough of them to make it a “On The Beach” scenario.
