Famous quotes containing the word worker:

    Photography suits the temper of this age—of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.
    Edward Weston (1886–1958)

    ... a worker was seldom so much annoyed by what he got as by what he got in relation to his fellow workers.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    If the worker and his boss enjoy the same television program and visit the same resort places, if the typist is as attractively made up as the daughter of her employer, if the Negro owns a Cadillac, if they all read the same newspaper, then this assimilation indicates not the disappearance of classes, but the extent to which the needs and satisfactions that serve the preservation of the Establishment are shared by the underlying population.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)
