Working Families Versus The Rest Of Society

If you ever listen to politicians speak, when ever they do something it is for working families, when ever there is a budget crisis, it is always in terms of how it will impact working families, sometimes it seems like politicians could care less about retirees, child-free couples or singles, students or those out of work.

This privileging of working families, lavishing all the benefits of a booming economy on tax breaks for working families, or concern only about working families, diminishes the contribution of all other demographics.

What is says, albeit subtly is,: if you’re not producing children or in paid employment, you are of less value to the country.

So don’t get old, don’t get sick or injured, have lots of babies, and one day you too could rise to the exalted status of being part of a working family.
