Dr. King, labor's hero

“So often we overlook the work and the significance of
those who are not in professional jobs, of those who are not in
the so-called big jobs. But let me say to you tonight that whenever
you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for
the building of humanity, it has dignity and it has worth.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., AFSCME Memphis Sanitation Strike, April 3, 1968

That's right. And now if we only paid people who work hard as if they're work really does have worth and dignity.
