The role of the American worker cannot be overstated. Some work in government jobs, building roads or maintaining public areas. Others work for small, local businesses, giving them the chance to thrive and serve the community. Still others work for massive domestic or even international corporations, allowing them to innovate, develop and find new types of success.
No matter what these workers do, there is a reason they’ve been referred to as the backbone of the economy. When it thrives, these workers are the reason why. When the country is strong and stable and prosperous, it is due to the endless hours put in by these dedicated workers.
After all, it may just take one person to come up with the idea for a new product or service. But it takes hundreds or even thousands of workers to make that idea a reality. They all have to work together to create it, brand it, market it, distribute it around the country and make sure that consumers are happy.
We often take these things for granted. Even when we love the products and services that we pay for, we don’t think about the workers that made it possible. But they deserve more thanks than that. Without them, many things would be impossible. Rest assured that although they may be overlooked when things are going well, we would certainly notice if they were suddenly removed from the equation and the economy ground to a halt.
Unfortunately, many of these important workers do face daily risks to bring this type of value to their communities. Those who get hurt on the job must know what legal options they have.
