To think about this Labor Day:

“When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.” — Sarah Kendzior , # , #

Thanks to Scott Galloway for pointing me to this through his post earlier this year on Growing Up with Economic Anxiety.
