God’s bodkin, man, much better!

People who advocate for other people’s better treatment are some of my favorite people. I am particularly fond of those who have done this for me. After years of working at this one Arts organization, picking up whatever crumbs of work that fell to us, it was stunning to hear that one of our managers had stood up and insisted that we get a raise. I remember that she was outraged that we’d never had one before. And in that case, it was just what we deserved but we’d been trained not to expect anything. To imagine circumstances better than our own was almost impossible in that moment. But now I find myself attempting to imagine being used much better.
