To The Social Workers With A Million Dollar Work Ethic



Dear Social Workers,

They say you can’t have a million-dollar dream with a minimum wage work ethic, but that doesn’t apply to you, does it?

You are working hard and getting things done. You are giving your all and making nothing into a lot of something.

Dear Social Workers,

You can no longer afford to have a million-dollar work ethic and a minimum wage expectation. You paid for your degree and now you deserve to be paid for your expertise.

You can no longer afford to be overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. The mental, physical, financial, and emotional price is too high.

You can’t afford to burn out and the social work profession can’t afford to lose more amazing social workers like you.

Dear Social Workers,

We need us as much as the world needs us! We’re stronger together.

  • Paying for a degree while barely making a living wage is unacceptable.
  • Stressing out to pass a licensing exam is unacceptable.
  • Giving your all to a toxic workplace is unacceptable.
  • Sacrificing your mental health while simultaneously bringing increased profits to an agency is unacceptable.

We need to move from surviving to thriving collectively, so it’s time to go inward!

Before you sign up for another CEU on ethics or grief, take some time for self-reflection.

Check your confidence, belief systems, and motivations and you may find a bit of self-doubt, self-sabotage, and self-sacrifice. Where did that come from?
