I'm a worker. I never knew much else then working for a check. One time I had some hard luck and was sitting in the Labor Ready work hall and this greasy 6' 5' broad shoulder dude comes into the Labor Ready and yells " WHO WANTS TO BUILD A CARNIVAL FOR 6 BUCKS AN HOUR???"

Everybody in the hall got up. Finished their Labor Ready free coffee and we followed this guy into downtown Long Beach Ca, and we built a Carnival.

We unloaded all this **** off of trailors and complete stangers built a Carnival. The ones that worked good got hired back to tear it down. This job paid cash. Now im a forman.

Americans can build things. America is creative.

@Amigo,
When was this? Presently $6 an hour is an illegal wage as it's below the Federally legal definition of the minimum wage.

I hate to piss on your parade Amigo but how is being an exploited laborer setting up a carnival constitute actually being creative?

Your personal sense of pride is great and so is your drive to do something. I'm afraid your example isn't too convincing especially given the dirty mottled history and reputation of carnies and carnivals here in the United States.

You don't have enough piss to close down my parade lady.

When we were done and working famlies had a good safe time for cheap it didn't matter how much we got paid. There is no such thing as an "illegal wage" in reality. I lived it, I grew up in it.

Now I build things from the ground up. Sometimes I have to hall trailors and a whole crews of men the long way across the country. Some times I on a forklift, sometimes i'm in a conference.

It's amazing what free lunch (bannanas, corn) can do for the moral of your labor.

I do maintenance work, part time. I was the lead here before that. In a younger time, I worked on houses and often sold my own jobs.

@edgarblythe,
one thing about maintenance work, everybody thinks you should know how to do everything. maintenance is crucial.

Sold jobs?! Thats the kind of talk I like!

Once I built a railroad, I made it run, made it race against time.

Once I built a tower, up to the sun, brick, and rivet, and lime;
Once I built a tower, now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?

Three thousand Irish immigrants were hired by the UP to start westward. Thousands more would be brought in and put to work.

In California 3,000 Chinese were imported to start the work eastward. When the CP started to drive tunnels through hard granite, there were more than 10,000 employed.

All this had to be done before the first shovel full of dirt was removed. The problems kept coming up; when one was solved, two others would be waiting to be solved. The only reason that the worst fears of the public were not realized was the absolute dedication of both owners and workers.
