You value me at zero so there’s nothing down for me,
You won’t give me any time but you want my soul for free
I need to plan a life where I know what I will earn
Did you never heed the lessons?
Are you destined not to learn?
Another generation fought this company tooth and nail
Did you think that we’d be different?
Did you think that we would bail?
Give zero to the mother who wants to make a home
And tell her bank you have her back when they’re screaming for their loan
Give ten hours to the man whose kids have special needs
Relying on the adage “he won’t bite the hand that feeds”
Next week you’ll give him twenty and their bellies will be full
But woe betide their appetites when the store it hits a lull
A person needs a future, a person needs respect
We crave some small security not a future that is wrecked
So stuff your zero contracts we’ve had our bloody fill
This fight will gain momentum as it climbs the corporate hill
The super normal profit which you take in every day
Means honest working people should get honest working pay
