BLUE COLLAR

America is one hot mess, it's always been a hot mess. I'm glad that the US has finally taken note of this, with the Occupy everywhere protests. I only wish the protests were more focused.  Many things suck, but they get better when we get better...aggressively better. We will work harder than our parents for less, because unfortunately America was build on the backs of stolen, borrowed exploited labor and efforts and most of us has reaped the benefits of that exploitation to some capacity...and honestly we can't all be kings queens, ceo's and overpaid executive, but we can stop supporting the folks and establishments we don't believe in. And there's no shame in using your hands to make things and earning a day's wage. Unfortunately this is something most of us will have to learn to do. Most of my day job pals have finally stopped looking for jobs (after getting hired, then getting laid off then getting hired for less pay, then getting laid off, dealing with delays in payment etc.) I'm proud of them because they are finally putting there efforts into marketing skills they possess. Teaching dance, vocal lessons, baking, basically doing things in which they are not brokers in a service. they are actually providing a valuable task or deliverable. All great changes came from folks that shifted they way they thought about things. Don't like the walls knock them down, or leave the room. Big ups to all the Blue collar workers. America needs more of them. We need to make things, particulary the things we use. Remixed with my hands especially for you: The Remixed Blue Collar shirt
