There is no exercise like digging ditches, clearing brush,
clearing fields of boulders etc. So why don't rich people do
it instead of going to the gym on weekends? The answer is
obvious. Somebody who's a ceo of a big company doesn't
want to work side by side with somebody who's digging that
ditch for a living. That's just the way things are.
The idea is to have a bunch of very strenuous manual labor
jobs lined up that will be performed for it's exercise benefit
by people who want a great workout. The money from their
labor will go to charity.
Now here's the other big difference. Not being born a silver
spooner, I've done this kind of work in my youth. It's very
hard, but the worst part is the preparation and the
cleanup. That and the boss yelling at you. That would be
eliminated. The tools, picks, shovels, hoes, scythes etc
would all be laid out, the job would be clearly delineated
and when done, the person would just drop the tool and
leave, something by the way they can do at any time
without being judged. Something else you couldn't do if you
were actually doing this for minimum wage.
And oh yea, did I mention that it would be free?
Get the workout of your life someplace outdoors,
Have your labor earn money for good causes,
See what it's like to work on a chain gang with doctors,
scientists and engineers. Being well off doesn't mean you
can't occassionally kick ass with a shovel.
Commemorative shirts would be given out too. "Feather
River Aquaduct Project: Cobra Team". "Children's Hospital
Brush Removal: Sagebrush Bombers" etc.
I think the program should be called "Weekend Warriors"
