This is an American proverb used to convey the idea that the most noticeable (or loudest) people are the ones most likely to get attention and resources. Someone else or another issue might be more pressing or in dire need, but the fact is that the noise makes it impossible to ignore the squeaky wheel. The people that complains or protests the loudest attracts attention and service.
It is also used in the variant of “The squeaky wheel gets the oil”.Read More →
