Men at Work
No, not the Australian rock band. Why are there fewer pictures of people working than, pictures of people at the beach? After all, most of us will spend far more hours working than at the beach. Is it because we hate our jobs? I've been working since I was ten years old, and I've only had a few jobs that I really liked. That doesn't mean that I hated the other jobs. It just means that those jobs were a means to an end. I don't know what these men are doing. It looks like some kind of machine shop. If they were skilled craftsmen, they probably made, comparatively, a good wage for the time. But how many of them looked forward to work, and how many of them looked forward to a weekend doing something else?
