The Working Man Arguement

Currently there is a discussion on what defines the working man. I agree that a working man is defined as anyone who gets up and goes to a job whether at home or elswhere. I am not defining the type of job. Any job to me is defined as something that you do and get money for. Any one who is taking non-legal sick time for pay, or is running away and hiding from their job to avoid penalties for non performance, is not in my consideration being a working man, but stealing from their employers.
