Throughout this week, we will read portions of the story of Moses and the slavery of the Hebrews by the Egyptians. Again, we will view the story through the lens of labor and worker justice.
What do you think Moses felt when he saw the mistreatment of workers? When you see worker injustice (slavery, wage theft, mistreatment of workers) what do you feel? What action did Moses take to address the injustice? Obviously, Pharaoh understood that an attack against a taskmaster was an attack against the system. Yet, killing a taskmaster was insufficient to stop the mistreatment? Why? What steps do you find yourself taking that are insufficient to address systemic worker injustice such as low wages or wage theft?
