Fair enough. I couldn’t, however, resist the dissonance of the President’s message and the setting: the paeans to worker voice, fair pay, equal opportunity — and related frustration at impotence — feel hollow coming from an office that relies on hundreds of unpaid workers every year. Moreover, many of those invited to the summit — the country’s labor champions — are either also exploiting unpaid labor in their offices or exempting it from their other labor advocacy.Conrad Cichorius, Die Reliefs der Traianssäule, Tafel XXVIII (Depicting equites)
