The real truth, the truth that the men in suits secretly fight with every inch of their being is that this man, is the real threat. He knows more than they do, he has paid his dues (in more ways than one). He knows what he is looking at when the man in the suit goes into the bar, or gets drunk on the golf course for the fourth Sunday in a row.

He knows that these men go to the doctor when they are sick and that they don't pay their own premiums. He knows that they will get stitches for a cut while he uses duct tape so that his supervisor doesn't know he got hurt on the job. He will lie if he gets hurt on the job because he wants to keep his job.
