As I listened Tuesday (July 31) to Marketplace, a radio program from American Public Media (APM), a feature under the heading of Wealth & Poverty brought three words to mind: fairness, justice and equality.
The feature by Krissy Clark reported on janitors in Houston, Texas who – to quote from one of the introductory paragraphs for the piece – “are among the lowest paid in the nation, though they clean the offices of some of the richest companies in the world in a city that’s booming.”
As I listened to the report, I found myself wondering: Can’t we in our country do better than this?
