- “Why Should We All be ‘Considered Equal’?” (or as I prefer to call it, “Occupy Ethics: The Meaning of Moral Equality”)
- “The Low Pay Behind America’s Fast Food: Strike Puts Fast-Food Workers’ Struggle in Spotlight”
The first essay attempts to address what I see is our failure to meaningfully explain, discuss, and creatively explore the importance of moral values in relation to issues of income differentials, low-wage labor, and ideas of respect.
The second uncovers some of the unknown facts of fast-food workers’ lives, including the fact most workers are women; and analyzes the many claims used to justify the exploitation of a 3+ million person labor force.
