What kinds of services are needed to maintain humans so they can "be productive" at work? How do food, hygiene and health maintenance happen? are they a luxury or a necessity? Is it real work? Who should care for the humans who need extra support? Since I can (currently) care for myself, does it even concern me? couldn't I just wash my hands of the whole thing? Why is there a law in Oregon that says puppies cannot be sold if they are younger than 8 weeks? Is there a similar protection for human babies?

The worksheet represents 2 hours of work in groups of 3.
