Of course they work

Re: Mother’s struggles 

I can never understand why these people say or perhaps it is mistakenly written that “we don’t work”. 

Language is very important and to say these people do not work is very misleading. 

It is like saying a mother who is at home looking after her children and her home does not have a job.

This language must stop, these people do work, they work hard, but what they do does not bring them enough money for a dignified life. This is what needs to be addressed.
