Three Days

Some of us already knew it, but it’s become apparent to some who didn’t realize it who really keeps society operational. Hint: it’s not white collar workers goofing off with spreadsheets. It’s the retail workers, the hotel maids, the baristas, the cleaners, the shelf stockers and the truck drivers who keep it all running. You can go a long time without some MBA and her PowerPoint slides. A very long time indeed. But three days without the grocery shelves being stocked, people start starving.
