You have nothing that the humblest worker has not a right to have also.
Rose Schneiderman
Since God is the one who calls people to their work, the worker becomes a steward who serves God.
The National Action Party, in many ways, emulated the PRI in the way in which it conducted itself in government, supporting corporatist leaders, supporting corrupt oil worker union leaders.
I was a social worker most of my life while raising my two boys.
Adults get more confused by social worker jargon. Unlike children, they are also less likely to see two sides of an argument, and they no longer think they can make the world a better place. That can make them rather boring, I suppose.
My mother was harsh and constantly told me I had jug ears and heaven knows what else. But she was devoted and a hard worker.

If you go two years without playing with confidence, when your whole life, you’ve been extremely confident and a hard worker… I got punched in the mouth, and it took me a while to adjust.

My father was brought up in an orphanage in the Catskills. He was a factory worker. And because his family wasn’t there for him, family was everything. We could disagree inside the house, but outside the house it was us against the world. So when I became a drag actor, he looked sideways but said okay.
I am a hard worker, and there’s nothing wrong with my motor.
Higher productivity enables companies to increase sales without adding workers. Even if job markets tighten and wages rise, corporate profits can continue to climb as long as worker productivity is growing faster than overall wages.
No, I’m not the first or last model of my type in this industry. You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself – one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.
We are still behaving as if a worker really doesn’t have a family because the work pattern really was meant for men who really were the financial support but weren’t looking after their families. We need to change this, and we can easily do that.

Arthur Godfrey
My success, I think it is due to the Mizanan family. Everyone in my family is a hard worker.
I feel like I’ve always been a hard worker – working too much on things that I don’t need to work on. Nothing’s ever going to be perfect, but I still feel like there’s this attainable perfection, which doesn’t exist.
I believe there’s been a slippery slope of new companies that have formed in the name of on-demand services… that maybe aren’t having as much of a focus as they should on the worker.

John Vane
The hard work and grit of the American worker makes us who we are as a people.
General Petraeus is not a miracle worker. He can not be successful unless the president creates greater confidence within his own team about the decisions which the president has himself made.
At the current $5.15 an hour, the federal minimum wage has become a poverty wage. A full-time worker with one child lives below the official poverty line.

It’s ironic that while I was a worker in Detroit, which I left when I was twenty six, my sense was that the thing that’s going to stop me from being a poet is the fact that I’m doing this crummy work.
Philip Levine
The average American worker gets something like 14 days of paid vacation. In my school, you’d use up ten of those taking care of your kids on teacher professional days, then tack on a couple more for kids getting sick.
Being a good worker in WWE is the worst curse that you can have. Instead of being given the title for being a great worker, they give it to someone who isn’t and have that person work with the good worker, so they look good in the ring.
Many talk about a guest worker program. I think most reasonable people believe that a guest worker program in the farming industry, perhaps in the gardening and landscape industries, is reasonable.

Maurice Allais
My dad was an assembly line worker at AC Spark Plug, which was a division of General Motors, and his job was to build and then inspect the little spark plugs as they came off the line.
A laborer no longer makes whole articles. He receives raw materials, puts his touch on them, and passes them to another worker in the series. When the articles are quite finished they are carried out of sight by currents of commercial exchange. These currents are untraceable.
John Bates Clark
Ask any worker at Starbucks, Cosi, McDonald’s or Walmart, ‘How many jobs do you have?’ and likely he or she will tell you: ‘Two.’ I know colleagues who’ve had breakfast at one store, and gone to lunch in another, only to find the same person waiting on them.
I’m an incredibly hard worker, I’m incredibly tenacious, and I’m incredibly detail-oriented.
I am quite surprised, that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about The Miracle Worker. We’re talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world… I’m just a little dismayed that people aren’t beyond it yet.
Anne Bancroft
There is nothing a worker resents more than to see some man taking his job. A factory can be closed down, its chimneys smokeless, waiting for the worker to come back to his job, and all will be peaceful. But the moment workers are imported, and the striker sees his own place usurped, there is bound to be trouble.
We have rules about the environment and rules about worker safety and rules about consumer protection.

My father was a manual worker.
Diane Abbott
A market where chief executive officers make 262 times that of the average worker and 821 times that of the minimum-wage worker is not a market that is working well. And it is surely not working well enough to build a solid middle class.
I’m always asked, ‘What’s the secret to success?’ But there are no secrets. Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.

I’m a late developer in everything. I have a fast mind and fast metabolism, and I’m an intense worker, but in terms of life development, I’m way behind.
I don’t think of myself as a movie star. I’m a movie worker. I come from a railroad family. I come from the corn.

If the system should not need parts now, the worker should not produce because you are just absorbing instead of producing.
Eliyahu Goldratt
I was a hard worker, and I always knew my lines.
I’ve been in the public eye now for about 15 or 16 years, and I’m very aware that fame is not a given. I have to maintain it. It’s not just something that will always be there. But I’ve always been a worker. I’ve never expected be given anything.
The problem of chemotherapy of bacterial infections could be solved neither by the experimental medical research worker nor by the chemist alone, but only by the two together working in very close cooperation over many years.
Gerhard Domagk
And I come here as a daughter, raised on the South Side of Chicago – by a father who was a blue-collar city worker and a mother who stayed at home with my brother and me.
My grandfather was a really, really tough no-nonsense factory worker who emigrated from Ireland in about 1900 to Bridgeport, Conn. He had a big effect on me. Those guys who took a great leap out into what they knew not were the ones who were the real stars, the real heroes.
My mom worked as a psychiatric social worker. She was interested in people, and I guess I am, too. So we would talk about the people that we knew, and why they behaved the way they did.

Salt Bae

Growing up, I’ve had plenty of obstacles, but to be honest, I didn’t always have doubters. I was a standout athlete, so when that happens, you don’t have too many people telling you ‘You can’t do this,’ and ‘You can’t do that.’ I’ve always been a bit of a people person and a hard worker.
