Famous quotes containing the word worker:

    The worker can unionize, go out on strike; mothers are divided from each other in homes, tied to their children by compassionate bonds; our wildcat strikes have most often taken the form of physical or mental breakdown.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    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)

    Treat your child-care worker as you want your boss to treat you—with respect, professionalism, adherence to policies and prompt payments.
    Candyce H. Stapen (20th century)
