My father worked outside in the hot summer and the cold winter. I think of him often in the heat and the cold how hard he worked for his family. 40 hours a week and sometimes more. No subsidies. Mother also worked. I always wish the people who expect to be given everything they don't have from the gov would remember those who have gone before and worked so hard to make their lives and their families better. Loved my mom and dad.

thank you for remembering all these type employees! Most of us have no idea how tough it is to work outdoors when the heat index is nearly 100! Imagine a boss who doesn't give breaks to his street crew, no offer of water, and no porta potty?!! True... Anyone is an building w/AC, you have no idea and take your jobs for granted.
