      Exploitation of the Working Classes. The skyscrapers reaching high into the urban madness of the city that gives Metropolis its title are representations of the economic inequality which drives the entire narrative of the film. The rich live in luxury high rises above the city, while the workers . The Master of Metropolis orders Rotwang to supply his robot with the face of Maria in order that it will be they who maintain control over the workers. But this false Maria will ultimately lead the workers, and most particularly the workers’ children, to the brink of catastrophe.

        In New York City, many essential workers who have shouldered the burden of the pandemic put in long, hard hours for not much money. There are more than 1 million of these front-line workers . We find that the drudge workers of Metropolis live in a city underground, 10 hours on shift at a time. When the shift changes, Joh pushes a blue metal plate which fills the city with a siren calling the workers to work. Freder sees it as the “machine-city of Metropolis” raising her .

      Great memorable quotes and script exchanges from the Metropolis movie on who preaches nonviolence to the workers. But even the benevolent leadership of Maria is a challenge to the privileged class, so they have the mad-scientist Rotwang concoct a robot double to take her place and incite the workers to riot. The story is. Reprinted from the Fall issue of "Daedalus. Descriptors: Black Employment, Employment Potential, Employment Qualifications, Labor Economics, Lifelong Learning, Skilled Workers, Unskilled Workers.
