Workers Go Go!

two Minions character figure on red table

We work hard in the factories and farms,
Making things with our muscles and arms.
But the bosses want to make more dough,
So they pay us less and make us go, go, go.

We toil all day, our backs are sore,
But we can’t afford to take a snore.
Our kids go hungry, our homes are bleak,
Capitalism makes our lives so meek.

We speak up, but they say “buzz off!”,
They threaten to fire us, we feel so scoffed.
But we deserve a fair deal and treat,
With good pay and a comfortable seat.

Capitalism can be so mean,
To the workers, it’s like a bad dream.
But we’ll keep fighting for what is right,
For a better life, we’ll put up a fight.

Workers are not Tools

Workers, long oppressed, with anger in their hearts,
Their patience worn thin, they’re ready to make a start,
They’ve had enough of being exploited and used,
They’re ready to rise up, to take back what’s been abused.

With picket signs and banners high,
They march to demand fair wages, for benefits nigh,
For safe working conditions and a voice to be heard,
Their struggle for justice is not a thing to be blurred.

They band together, a union so strong,
Their collective power, can’t be wronged,
They stand up to the bosses, the wealthy elite,
For the rights of the worker, they will not retreat.

They strike, they protest, they demand change,
Till the capitalists feel the workers’ rage,
They will not be silenced, they will not be still,
Till the scales of power are balanced and will.

Workers, long oppressed, with anger in their hearts,
Will rise up to take back what’s been taken apart,
They’ll show the capitalists that they’re not just tools,
But human beings, with rights and dignity to rule.

The Backbone of Our Nation

Workers, the backbone of our nation,
A vital part of our economy’s foundation,
From the factories to the fields,
Their labor and hard work never yields.

They build our cities and keep them running,
Their hands are rough, their will is stunning,
They toil in the sun and in the rain,
Their dedication never wanes.

They are the nurses, the teachers, the farmers,
Their contributions often go unnoticed, like a silent charmer.
They are the ones who make our society thrive,
Their efforts keep our economy alive.

They are the ones who keep the gears turning,
Their hard work keeps the wheels churning,
And though they may be tired and worn,
Their contributions to society are never forlorn.

Workers, the backbone of our nation,
A vital part of our economy’s foundation,
Their labor and hard work should be recognized,
For they are the ones who keep our society energized.

Morden is a growing city with growing needs. We need more professionals (specifically in the medical and education fields). We need to not only entice people to work here, we need to demonstrate that this is a most excellent community to live in. Some of the same things that may draw professionals into our community are the same things that will attract tourists.
