To have a working-class orientation is to see the need for actually realizing/using/benefiting from labor. There should be some fruit borne of the tree tended.

Real labor involves materiality, tangibility. It implies a respect for material (empirical) result.

Get it – whatever it may be – by producing the wherewithal to acquire or gain it.

To be sure, there is a concern for quality, a respect for craft, an honoring of the care (time) expended to create/generate the fruit.
