This book is a view of the everyday worker and how he or she sees life, government and the world as a whole. Many times corporate management sees the worker in a different light than the worker sees him- or herself. The way the term blue-collar worker has gone from a stigma to a badge of pride, and why the way America looks at the blue-collar workers should be viewed differently. Before I start, I wish to express a little story that I think shows how we should view worker growth. Two men are walking in the woods. As they walk along, they run across a very large bear. The bear starts chasing them with the intent to eat them. As the men run along the narrow path, one stops and sits down and takes a pair of running shoes out of his bag. He starts to put them on when the other man says, "Hey! What are you doing? Those won't help you outrun the bear." The first man says, "No, but I will outrun you!" The man who thinks outside the box, looking ahead of others, will always stay ahead of any competition. I dedicate this book to all managements that I have reported to or worked with as an hourly worker and a salaried manager.
