Hiring someone to do a job does not, in and of itself, mean *any* of these things. Hiring someone for a job is simply that - hiring them for a job. All the other emotional and political baggage you're adding on here is being added by you, and it doesn't have to be. None of these sentiments is inherent in doing a job. In my opinion, this list offends both the person who is hiring and the person doing the work. -hollie ------------------------- Trillium Hollow Cohousing Portland, Oregon hollie [at] meandering.org ------------------------- ---------- >From: "S" <scowley [at] library.utah.edu> >To: Multiple recipients of list <cohousing-l [at] freedom2.mtn.org> >Subject: Re: hiring servants >Date: Mon, Jan 3, 2000, 3:42 PM > > Thanks, once again, David. > > The rationale is always..."'we need time, 'they' need money. > What's wrong with that ?" > > I see that the injustice comes in the forms... > - "your history is the same as mine." > - "your choices are the same as mine." > - "your work is not as important as mine." > - the (in)dignity of the work itself. > - "your playtime is not as important as mine." > > I think the whole idea of servants needs a discussion, and we ought to > have a clear argument to present against it. > If we are going to have the truely democratic, diverse, and progressive > place we keep > talking of in cohousing, we need to be clear on this point.
