“Good things come to those who work their asses off.” This is what the mug I’m using this morning says as I drink my coffee. However, the mug was made in China, where people who work their asses off don’t receive care and have no rights. As I drink from this mug in the mornings, it serves as a reminder for justice and humbles me. The work I do, even though I work hard, is still enjoyable to me, and not everyone has that privilege. Therefore, I work for their rights.

It’s not only in China where people work tirelessly in unrewarding jobs that don’t pay well. This is a world-wide phenomenon. Our communities can do better. In fact we must.
