Unhappiness is best defined as the difference between our talents and our expectations.
Too many companies, especially large ones, are driven more and more narrowly by the need to ensure that investors get good quarterly returns and to justify executives' high salaries. Too often, this means that they view most employees as costs.
Women do two thirds of the world's work ... Yet they earn only one tenth of the world's income and own less than one percent of the world's property. They are among the poorest of the world's poor.
Not a penny off the pay; not a minute on the day.
A fair day's wage for a fair day's work.
The salary of the chief executive of the large corporation is not a market award for achievement. It is frequently in the nature of a warm personal gesture by the individual to himself.

The men who simply do the work
For which they draw the wage.

Idiots are always in favour of inequality of income (their only chance of eminence), and the truly great in favour of equality.
One man's wage increase is another man's price increase.
