Tie between the bomb threat where the boss made me go back in with the police to show them the lockers and at lunch one day when I was held at gunpoint in an armed bank robbery.

Gary Bryner Retired General Motors Worker & Union Member 74 YEARS OLD Ann Arbor, MI MY STORY

“There’s this wonderful reward, I would say, of trying to support the needs of workers and trying to facilitate making it better for them. Not only where they work, but how does it affect all workers; should be, not only in the factory, but workers everywhere. Because no matter what you do it’s worth something.”'

Jason Woodworth LINE COOK 21 YEARS OLD Kalamazoo, MI 49009 MY STORY

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?

Everybody makes mistakes when they're working in a kitchen. I find myself making complex meals without much knowledge of the meal itself. The plate a customer receives is often slightly different than what it was intended to be. Typically, the only indicator that a meal wasn't successfully prepared is if the customer sends it back to the kitchen, which rarely happens.

What makes you most proud of the work you do?

At the end of an insanely busy night at the restaurant, it feels good to know that I really worked hard. I feel proud when I see myself doing things like managing stress, effectively communicating, and being a generally efficient line cook. When things get hectic in the kitchen, you have to keep a level head and trust in your own abilities. When the busy rush is finally over, there's a sense that you've truly earned your pay for that shift.

“Work is knowing that at the end of the day you were able to make a responsible decision and to understand the aspects of that decision, and to be able to live with the consequences of that decision.”

Manuela Pulliam COOK AT PORTILLO'S 35 YEARS OLD Chicago, IL, 60607 MY STORY

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know ?

I am a cook at Portillo's and it is not an easy job, we consistently lift, cook, make, and bag food . Cooks also deal with different attitudes of co-workers and guest but have to be nice at all times even when they are irate, kill a person with kindness sort to speak....

What makes you most proud of the work you do? I make people feel better everyday, they leave with a smile on their face and that makes me happy.

Scott Little Bridge Technician 52 years old Bluffton, OH 45817

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know

I inspect bridges and culverts to assure they're safe. Then I enter all of the data into the computer.

What makes you most proud of the work you do?

Everyone assumes the bridges are safe they drive over. Most of them are. It's one less worry in our lives.
