Blue Collar Experiences In the book “They Say, I Say”, one of the articles by Mike Rose talked about his mother in a restaurant, and how people can learn from their Blue Collar jobs.

Therefore, I learned to cook after she came home, so that she would be able to rest instead of trying to provide the family home-cooked meals. My brother and I helped with the chores around our home as much possible. My mother worried about all of us, so I tried to lessen her burden.
