As the world grows richer, people will care more about how their food is made, how the animals are treated, whether the laborer who picked the food is paid a living wage.
For myself I found that the occupation of a day-laborer was the most independent of any, especially as it required only thirty or forty days in a year to support one.
The laborer, looking into it at evening, purifies his thoughts of the dross and earthiness which they have accumulated during the day.
It would be different if you grudged losing a laborer--that's how I regard him--but you want to cure him from love of him.
