Contrasts in the work force

Uplifting and downlifting stories in my morning papers. In the SF Chronicle, a story about an amazing family. The couple both at Stanford, successful scientists and professors; three grown daughters, all successful in their own right in high tech and business. The American Dream at work.

In the LA Times, a story of a 40ish woman who has worked at an envelope factory since she was 19, about how worse the job has become over the years, higher quotas, loss of perks, loss of sense of community work force. American Reality at work.

Our class-driven society.
