As I drove up to the local field office, the smell of fresh manure and fresh vegetables filled the air.
The day was cold, the sky was dark and the air was full of dust.
The workers were busy sorting and cleaning.
They were harvesting hay and corn.
I asked one of them what it was like to be a worker.
“It’s like being a dog in a barn,” he replied.
“You can’t get used to it.”
The day is about to end and the workers are leaving for a week-long break.
I’m not the only one who is sick.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about 40 percent of American workers will experience some type of sickness during the Labor Day holiday, according to the Associated Press.
That includes both sick and healthy workers, who are most often the most vulnerable workers.
It’s also a good time for a holiday to be held in a place where you’re not sure whether to get up early or not.
As the temperature drops, it’s easier to stay up.
On the other hand, it takes more energy to sleep, and if you’re really tired, you’ll likely need to take a rest.
This is especially true for young people who are going to college in a few weeks.
It also affects older workers, like the ones who tend to be sicker than younger workers.
A few weeks ago, a group of health care workers from the University of Wisconsin in Madison were hospitalized for a respiratory infection after working through the holiday.
“We were just having a lot of fun,” said one of the nurses, Erin Knezevic.
“The only way to go about this was to stay home and be home sick.”
She and her colleagues went into the hospital for a blood test after waking up early.
It turned out the infection had infected their nasal passages.
“I don’t know how you sleep without a mask,” said Knezzec.
But for workers like Knezy, the holiday is a reminder of what it’s like to work in the world of medicine and the sacrifices they’ve made.
“For me it’s a big thing,” she said.
“A lot of people get to go back and have a family or go on vacation or go to college or get married.
I want to go home, I want a vacation.
I don’t want to have to work.
I’ve worked my whole life to get here.”
