Classism

There are a great many narratives which are detrimental to the American workers, but perhaps the most detrimental is the story of the lazy poor person. It is a course a fallacy. Most of the people in the United States who are poor, work. But then you tell them that, and they’ll begin to make of fun of people in “Menial jobs”. “Oh they didn’t work hard enough, so they are poor now.” How lazy are they when they spend hours preparing. The food you eat while earning much less than you do. It ignores the facts, every job is necessary, someone has to make the hamburgers. But everyone does not have to be poor. Someone takes all he money those workers make, that is why they are poor. If the workers owned their corporation, everyone would be payed a living wage.
