What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

I have a question. I would like everyone to chime in, whether or not I know you.

Does anyone have any idea when the American workforce began being referred to as "workers?"

This has troubled me for a while and I'd like to hear some ideas on the subject.

That is all.

what did they used to call them?

It seems to me that we used to be referred to as employees, the workforce, ________'s co-workers, associates, etc.

I am unsure of what you would rather call them. I am a worker. I don't feel like less of a man because of that word. I would if I was called a slacker because I was collecting unemployment. But I am not, I am a worker.

Now if you are asking the question so that you can try to bash the Prez, then it wasn't really a question at all but a statement.
