A Quote

Migrant Worker CA“I worked my whole life and all I have now is my broken body.”

-Mexican migrant worker in the US, photographed and quoted in the 1930s by Dorothea Lange.

I guess I’m posting this to in a small way counteract the myth that all it takes is hard work to achieve the American Dream. And therefore, the poor are poor because they are too lazy to better themselves. Re: loathing of the poor.
