Absolutely! All of the most essential needs we have when we have kids and must work to support them, when we are sick and need help, when we are young and need to be taught the knowledge we will need to survive and succeed, when we age and need assistance to perform our daily activities, when we have an accident, or our house catches on fire — a hundred other needs we have to insure that we can live reasonably comfortably— ALL of these things require the aid of workers who are financially valued the least in their jobs by our country. The more we are unable to do without them, the less we are willing to compensate them. The values of capitalism and libertarianism, unreasonably applied to human beings is at the root of this. Those whose work matters most in our society are taken for granted and their value to us disregarded as we pursue our national agenda of acquisition and our worship of the culture of deregulated capitalism. It is time to humanize capitalism and make it responsive to ALL of our needs. This is one way to begin that process.
