Labor Day | 10 fictional workers who deserved a pay raise

Yesterday, May 1, was celebrated the Day of Labor and Workers. A day to rest, but also to remember the labor rights won with much struggle. And of struggle, each worker understands, after all, the challenges are many to be able to maintain the level of production. To pay homage to each of you, workers of our Brazil (and also those looking for a job), we have made a short list of 10 fictional characters who are exemplary workers who, like you, deserved a salary increase and more recognition. . of the bosses.

10 – Dante and Randal – ‘The Clerk’

The film dates from 1994, but the feeling persists. Dante (Brian O’Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) are two convenience store attendants who, more than just selling products, make the place a welcoming environment – either because they continue to bother customers, because they keep chatting about movies in the middle of it or because they feel so comfortable they decide to play rooftop hockey. It’s the kind of store that makes you want to be friends with guys and keep coming back.

9 – Katherine – Monalisa’s smile

When we talk about exciting movies with teachers, almost everyone remembers the “ Dead Poets Society ”, but how about seeing us think about this “ Monalisa’s Smile ” – the story of Katherine (Julia Roberts), a teacher newly hired to teach at a college just for women. There, more than teaching her subject, she teaches students about women’s rights, inspiring them to be better.

8 – Chicó and João Grilo – “O Auto da Compadecida”

Chicó (Selton Mello) and João Grilo (Matheus Nachtergaele) try everything to find a job and stay there. They invent all kinds of scrolls to get along because they don’t get paid well for what they do. They would receive better, maybe they wouldn’t have so many problems.

7 – Leeve – ‘The Supreme Voice of the Blues’

Enjoy watching:

Oscar nominated for Best Actor, Leeve (Chadwick Boseman) was the best trumpeter, able even to compose songs and create more dance arrangements for songs by Ma Rainey (Viola Davis), however, neither she nor the label did appreciate the talent and dedication of the boy. He deserved a better salary to record in the studio and even a solo career!

6 – The whole family – ‘Parasite’

In terms of work, the whole “Parasita” family deserved a better salary. Kim (Song Kang-ho), Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik), Ki-jung (Park so-dam) and Chung-Sook (Jang Hye-jin) have given so much to the family they worked with, hey , if they had gained more perks, it probably wouldn’t have happened that happened, right?

5 – Katherine – ‘Stars beyond time’

Of course, Katherine (Taraji P. Henson) and her friends Dorothy (Octavia Spencer) and Mary (Janelle Monáe) worked hard at NASA as mathematicians, but Katherine was literally responsible for all the fundamental calculations for the mission of send the man. in space succeeded. He deserved a raise, a statue and a team, to say the least!

4 – Andrea – ‘The devil wears Prada’

Andrea (Anne Hathaway) ate the devil’s kneaded bread (pardon the pun) while trying to please her new boss, Miranda Presley (Meryl Streep). He took all kinds of bullying to keep his job, and although he managed to shake off all that pressure, he should have been better recognized by the fashion bam-bam-bam.

3 – Chaplin – ‘Modern times’

Charlie Chaplin’s character in ‘Modern Times’ doesn’t even have a name, but the poor guy works too hard! The 1936 classic depicts the cruel way in which the mass reproduction industry forces its employees to work for hours, with few breaks, in repetitive and eternal movements. This character deserved to have his labor rights recognized!

2 – Val – “What time is she back?”

Val (Regina Casé) is a portrayal of the maid who has more functions than she was hired: in addition to managing the house, cleaning and cooking, she still has emotional support for the children. of bosses, although there is a fine line that makes her not part of the family. He not only deserved a raise, but a job that required less!

1 – Ben – ‘A trainee gentleman’

Ben (Robert De Niro) is an 80-year-old intern who has just joined Julie’s (Anne Hathaway) company. He has coffee, drives the car, takes Julie’s daughter to the party, travels for work, hears rants and even invades his mother’s mother’s house to save her neck! If anyone deserved to be hired, it was him!

Honorable Mention: William – “ A Day of Fury ”

William (Michael Douglas) deserves our honorable mention because he’s not even Employee of the Month, but if they had been more empathetic with him and hadn’t fired him, he wouldn’t have come out destroying half of Los Angeles. The guy is a bottle of gunpowder about to explode – if he had at least one job, he probably would have handled other situations better. Is anyone qualified to use it?
