The Working Class

Week18. The plight of the labor force has been evolving long before Marx and Engels wrote the manifesto and  Labour day been celebrated around the globe. It is by the way, the backbone of every country's economy and social life blood. There seemed an unavoidable turbulent clashing of the ruling class and the working class as we've learned through history. From the beginning, basic rights were asserted and fought for because it didn't always served in silver platters. Even the Mighty America and Europe have labor issues and rising unemployment rate. Then, worse could be expected on the conditions of the labor force in Third World countries like ours. The hands that created the towering edifices and the unending tracks of long and winding roads, though calloused and strained, deserve to be honored and thanked, even for just a single day.
