Quote on Egalitarianism October 23, 2022October 23, 2022 ~ Clarissa There’s a difference between democracy and egalitarianism, and no matter how strongly you might feel about the former, nothing’s more toxic to the soul than the latter. Too often the promise of a union isn’t fair treatment but rather equal treatment. Do you do a good job or a shitty one? Doesn’t matter. Your union has fought hard for a living wage, so you’ll get it.Richard Russo, The Destiny Thief Rate this:Share this:PinterestTwitterFacebookEmailRedditPocketTumblrPrintLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...

One thought on “Quote on Egalitarianism”
Unions aren’t egalitarian. They seek fair wages across scales that are typically quite wide. How employees are treated depends on collective agreements that management has ratified.
Finally, all full-time workers deserve living wages. This concept does not warrant the scorn Russo provides here.
