Cahan hints on not letting oneself be intimidated by inexcusable behavior in an attempt to keep things smooth and to keep from causing any issues. In the story he presents the need for personal pride very clearly. It grabs the reader at the heart, showing how important it is for a person to stand up for what they believe in, and in this case to not allow oneself to be crushed in the name of a paycheck.
