Life as a Liberal/Socialist in a Conservative/Capitalist society


Once a month, Kate E. comes to clean my home.  She’s done so for more than four years. Her house cleaning skills are spectacular.

As a bonus she “adores” my dog Penne, and Penne is always happy to see Kate.

Kate has never increased her pay in all these four years.

So I decided to increase her pay by 12%.

That’s the least that I can do as a Liberal/Socialist in a Conservative/Capitalist society.


And I am blessed to know Jill H. She is a pet sitter who more is than happy to stay in my home, and to take care of my dog and my cats when I have to be out of town.

Jill’s fees are extraordinarily low.  They are less than a living wage.

 So I pay her more than she asks.

It’s the least that I can do as a Liberal/Socialist in a Conservative/Capitalist society.
