watch it: “Ten Dollars an Hour”

Excellent short documentary on economic inequalities many people never even notice:

Ten Dollars an Hour from Ben Guest on Vimeo.

The level of cluelessness on display here is astonishing. Of course the kitchen worker says, “No problem, I’ll be there” when asked to work extra days: she’s terrified of losing even this crappy job, and because she only gets paid a lousy ten bucks an hour, she always needs more money. She’s not doing it out of kindness and consideration for you, Mr. Boss Man.

Via Suburban Guerrilla, where Susie Madrak has tagged this “Class War” and “Fuck the Poor,” and rightly so.
