Some time back, I read of a character who hated to do cleaning, because she worked as a cleaner for her living. She is Vitoria, the protagonist in Indelicacy. The review is at the link. Vitoria started working as a cleaner when she was 12 years old. She had brushed toilets, scrubbed tiled walls, mopped floors and wiped virtually every surface that could be wiped. Cleaning is tiring hard work.
In the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, more cleaning is essential. Vitoria’s boss who owns a cleaning company, would be hiring more young women to be cleaners. In fact, anyone who is eligible. More cleaning service companies are born. The thankless job that few want to do, becomes the essential, go-to job that puts food on the table.
She was a Cinderella until her version of Prince Charming came and swept her off her feet. Read Indelicacy by Amina Cain.
