Summary: 

Longshoremen have one of the most intense and tiresome jobs in the grand chain to supply food to those in need. Longshoremen unload thousands of bags and crates of food from ships and containers into trucks, from trucks to ships, horses, wagons, mules and even bicycles. 110 pound sacks of rice, 55 pound bags of cereal, crates with 15 bottles of vegetables oil, etc. Longshoremen contribute to the development of communities and also save lives in emergency situations; in their arms and upon their shoulders food is carried regardless of sun or rain; sometimes for hours sometimes for days. Our appreciation is graciously extended to all longshoremen every day, remembering them especially today, Happy Labour Day!
