I’ve been reflecting on this for a while. When you look at the basic shape of my original outline for the project, there’s a lack of resolution. Or maybe you could say that it resolves, but on a pretty depressing note.

Hey look, the question of “Who does the dishes?” lets us understand things about the world we live in. Economic inequality! Racism! Sexism! More! Well, the world sure is unfair. See ya later!

So I want to add some discussion of what can be done. How can we make the world fairer for the people who wash the dishes? What are some policy responses? Some I’ve been thinking of discussing:

—minimum wage


—health care

—the right to organize a union

—cash transfers
