Some days I hate my job. However I am thankful for it and for the lifestyle and security it provides for me and my family. I appreciate it even more when I watch documentaries like this 4-part series on Aljazeera called “Working Man’s Death”. It provides a glimpse of the harsh realities of the physical work in the 21st century.
As you watch on your laptop or desktop computer, in a warm room with a full stomach, probably drinking a cold beer, or a popular branded coffee or tea, or a glass or bottle of clean water, my hope is that it brings your life into perspective, particularly when you sit to write how oppressed and shitty your life is.

CRY ME AN ONION said:
You are right; I can say, approaching 60, that my stupid curiosity took me lots of places. Like a cliché I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Looking back I wished I had gone nowhere and stayed dumb happy or unhappy in the comfort zone of a developed country.
The world is bad and ugly and seeing has not made me happier but very sad of what we are as human beings.
I like Aljazeera, and “working man’s death” shows realities of what the majority of the world is in peace time.
Think when there are conflicts and wars instigated by the I-know-better-leaders. The uneducated mass follows blindly and they always end up with less than the nothing they started up with.
Everyone has to work to make a living but trust me consider yourself bless when you don’t have to die working to barely live.
Belated thanksgiving and enjoy the family.
The more physical labor the less the pay.
