The Meaning of Pluggers, part 7

Pluggers, 20150802:
Today, "Plugger" means "Construction worker".

Very straightforward. Almost old school.

Did you know construction workers have a higher incidence of suicide than any other distinguishable profession? I read it maybe a decade ago in some glossy magazine. It's because tradition dictates they get up at 5 in the morning and start working, to show that they are Real Men and tougher than common folk. Like a reasonable person could figure out using only their ass, this is Not True and only serves to make them more miserable than common folk. It turns out forcing yourself to wake up before dawn five days of the week for indefinite periods is really bad for you in the long term!

That coffee and donuts breakfast on the road probably isn't doing Mr Bear any favors either.

Your humble critic's plugger status: Negative like a HIV test
