  •  I think we fail to value skills that we dont have (6+ / 0-)

    or won't make us "upwardly" mobile. But we all need to wear clothes, have shelter, live, love and play which involves a lot of unseen labor in our lives (the nurses aides in our mother's nursing home whom I'm sure we want to give our mothers loving and attentive care). When we disrespect those people and work that don't seem to be leading us to the "successful" lives of upwardly mobile capitalists, we will suffer in the end when people do not take care of our parents, make shoddy clothes and houses, spit in the food they cook for us.  It takes a village to make a world and we have to appreciate and respect the effort of the whole or it will fall apart. Being a good citizen (and hopefully we all vote)requires that kind of social awareness or we will end up with the Ayn rand variety of society that we currently seem to be experiencing.
