Lower caste jobs deserve higher pay
I argued that lower caste jobs such as toilet cleaners, dish washers and the likes need to be paid more but my friend argued that raising their wage does not help the social standing of these jobs. Huh!? I do not think that my friend meant that people filling these unwanted jobs ought to be […]More
What cca should I join in university
In short, one should learn the classical ballroom dance in preparation for one’s role as someone else’s spouse.
