Why A Living Wage Is Needed. - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

There is as much a need for labour intensive jobs if not more as intellectual jobs.
And not all the jobs require the same amount education.
Without fast food workers cashiers, dishwasher, construction workers, janitors, sanitation workers, factory workers, labours of all walks of life.
This world would come to screeching halt.
No more buying fast food, no more eating at a fancy restaurant.
No more buying any thing from any store.
No more ware house worker storing the food yet to come.
Hope you know how to grow your own food.
Hope know how to dig or have well for water.
And even then I hope know how to generate electricity for your water pump.
No more travelling because roads rails, air or water because everything is out of repair.
Roofs are falling in because again because those damn labours are not there.
Trash is piling up because nobody willing to take your garbage.
Businesses are becoming disgustingly filthy because there is no one to clean them up.
Your gram is dieing because she live in assisted living place where they don't require any certification and the workers are fed up.
Your grandfather is dieing too because the CNA doesn't make much more in at nursing home or hospital.
You can't work because there are no day care workers to watch your kids.
You will starve, thirst and die without them.
All while we ask the question why do need to pay a living wage to the under educated.
Well to put it simply there is needs to be somebody under educated for you to live accustomed life.
Somebody has to be a labourer for somebody not to be.
