The intent of On the Job is to give voice to the voiceless by focusing on a class of people who are wholly invisible in mass media. Now more than ever, the working class needs greater appreciation in our society and media. The lives and challenges of the ordinary, everyday worker are given little or no attention, while it is upon the backbone of their labor that modern life is made possible.

By utilizing the interactive nature of the web, On the Job will engage the public to think differently about workers and to express this new perspective in a concrete format that will inspire others to do the same.
