    The Wage Ethic - By Holly Sklar, Tom Paine, via Ocnus.net
    Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was born on the brink of the Great Depression and died fighting for the right of workers to earn a decent living.

    On March 18, 1968, days before his murder, King told striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tenn., 'It is criminal to have people working on a full-time basis?... getting part-time income.' King said, 'We are tired of working our hands off and laboring every day and not even making a wage adequate with daily basic necessities of life.'
