Care Workers Give Care But NEVER Receive It.
“You’re a nurturer”
My mama said to me, before I had graduated from high school, you’re a nurturer. At that time I did not know it was a death sentence.
You give all your care to others and you have none left…you earn the lowest wages, and your work is not even considered work at all. You take pay cuts before anyone else.
(the past two years I was paid under $3/hr as an au pair and this year less than minimum wage teaching an intensive language course to high schoolers and college age kids — fuck you France, you are a misogynist prick SMH)
Society is entitled to care. To teachers who teach because they love it, nannies who are just made to love other people’s kids and raise them right.
