Working hard for the money

Roger B. Hill, an associate professor in UGA’s workforce education program, commented on the out-dated notion of Protestant minister’s spurring the economy by preaching salvation through hard work in the Belleville (S.C) NewsDemocrat. Some ministers have been cautious about extolling the virtue of work, he said, “because they didn’t want their parishioners taken advantage of by corporate giants.” But as more people shift from corporate jobs to self-employment, he added, hard work may yield more rewards for the worker.
