Intro to the world of work.... We all need to do something... We all made it to this classroom today... Many of us ate breakfast this morning/ How? What processes occurred in order to enable this? Did we go milk the cows, harvest grind the wheat we grew in our field? No. Farmer > Truck Driver > Warehouse worker/stock?> Truck Driver> market inventory(sok, carfour, migros..) "Division of labor", in America only 3% of the population supplies enough food for everyone (in theory). this enables the rest of us to hold jobs specializing in other professions. I personally have had many jobs, I have worked as a 'porter' at an antiques dealer, as a painter's assistant at a car dealership, as a waiter at a sushi bar, as an English teacher in Brazil, as a flower delivery person, as a research assistant at the Political Science Department at Ohio University, as an associate at a bookstore on The Ohio State University's campus, as a community organizer for a non-profit trying to prevent the re-election of George W. Bush, I have worked as an intern for a Congressman who is now a US Senator, I am now working for an organization in Ankara that provides consulting services to NGOs businesses, and governments...
