Short Link to this Quote:

[collapse]

 

In this quote, William Shakespeare seems to be commenting on the imbalance of power between the wealthy and poor. His interpretation is that when rich people (who may be “villains” exploiting the system) are in need of the services of poor people, it creates an opportunity for the poor to set their price or terms of engagement.

The message appears to be that desperation or necessity can sometimes allow the less powerful to demand better compensation or treatment from those above their station who require their assistance or labor.

So the quote conveys that economic leverage exists for the poor over the rich in certain circumstances where the wealthy find themselves dependent on the poor to fulfill their needs.
