An Ode To The Blue Collar Ethos

John Con

Though not a blue collar worker myself, I grew up in a blue collar household. This ethos seeped deep into my core and is reflected in my approach to work. I wrote a short โ€œode to the blue collar ethosโ€ below, inspired by my father and brother who are still showing up to work each day to keep the country moving:

There is work to be done,

Show up, do the work, go home.

This is the commitment we have made,

So you might as well have a good attitude and humor, in spades.

The motto is to be useful while you are here,

Go ahead, kick it into gear.ย 


A sincere “thank you” to everyone who is doing their part each and every day.
