‘Dignity of work’ myth keeps upper class ruling

Why is Forbes writing about this story here:

Romney calculates that getting these mothers to leave their kids and enter the workforce would actually cost the state more through the increased costs of providing day care for the children of these working mothers.

No, Romney had a higher goal in mind —he wanted these stay-at-home mothers to know the ‘dignity of work‘.

How dignified is flipping burgers at McDonalds?
How dignified is it to work at Wal-Mart with no insurance and to get locked into the store to do unpaid overtime?

We all know the Romney-bot is an uber-capitalist.  He loves money, he loves making money, and imposing some dignity to undignified work helps push folks into undignified work, thereby keeping the managment/worker shitpile rolling along.

Dignity is being a huge shareholder or senior manager at McDonalds or Wal-Mart and you’re clocking big loot and getting health insurance and living large on the backs of other people’s labor.
