Exploitation

I think “exploitation” has a funny defintion as it is actually used today:

exploitation. n. When someone accepts terms that you would not.

Coyote today captured this today with a perfect anecdote.  The money quote is:

“All of my jobs in Arizona are included in their count of “bad jobs.”  And you know what?  We have a waiting list of over 200 names of people who would take another of these jobs tomorrow if I had one to offer.”

The error is intrinsicism.  A job is neither good nor bad in and of itself.  Each has to decide for himself what job (or anything else) is good or bad.
