I vaguely thought it was from Vonnegut, but can't remember any novel. Dotage… :|

Underpaid Janitors Use Basel Banana in Protest: "A Banana Is Worth More Than Us"

Image

They're calling it the "platanito protest." Janitors with bananas taped to purple union shirts are marching in the streets of downtown Miami this afternoon to protest low wages and working conditions in an industry rife with abuse and intimidation.

In Miami, where janitorial wages are among the lowest in the nation, the weekend news of a duct-taped banana selling for $120,000 at Art Basel didn't go over well. In fact, to janitor Felipa Cardenas, it was almost obscene.

"How much are we worth? A banana is worth more than us, apparently," says Cardenas, who earns $8.46 an hour cleaning a luxury office building in downtown Miami. "Our work is something people don't value; they look at us like we're nothing. But it's a job with dignity, and it's tough work. We deserve better payment."

I’m appalled that you peasants thought that the banana was the art. It was the duct tape! The banana was just a flourish.
