Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
really called shit work.

Pay a worker a decent wage, and there is no such thing as shit work.

Of course, if the elite class has determined an employ to be shit work and refuses to pay the prevailing, living wage (and therefore imports workers to fill the jobs at lower levels of pay they determine the work to be worth), then all of a sudden, there is such a thing as a shit job.

The Paris metro, in the dark of the middle of the night, is being entirely refurbished, at sub-standard wages, and in scandalous conditions, by illegal immigrants.

I for one am not so glad the Socialist (and unabashedly Liberal) mayor of Paris is looking out for the interests of his (mostly wealthy) taxpayers by exploiting illegal workers to make his underground as pretty as the floral show on the Champs-Elysées for Christmas, and thereby both screwing the illegal workers laboring dangerously for peanuts, and undermining the rights of legal workers everywhere in Ile-de-France...

This reality is as it is because we accept it, not because it needs to be.
