Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I've been on holiday for week, and there's a disturbing parallel to this picture - the waitstaff, store clerks, and hotel cleaning workers have almost all been minorities, an obvious case of an un-spoken underclass. I tip well, but does that salve my conscience more than help?
I've thought the same thing when I've been in comparable situations . . . and I've yet to get handle on a fully satisfying answer. I can say we're all victims of the same system, and I can say to myself I'd change it if I were in a position to do so, and I'm certain I would; but what does that mean, ultimately.Depressing.
