Do you embody the American spirit? Do you work hard, and are not afraid to sweat? Is your mother proud of you? Most important of all, could you use an extra $100,000? If you can answer yes to all those questions, you might be just what Dickies is looking for in their American Worker of the Year search.
It certainly helps if your job allows you to incorporate Dickies apparel -- men's and women's work pants, shorts, shirts, denim, outerwear, school wear and the like -- in your working wardrobe. Previous honorees have included teachers, an oil field roughneck, farmers, builders, an electrical lineman, and soldiers. In 2009, agriculture teacher and horse trainer Michael McGee of Broken Bow, Okla., was crowned the Dickies American Worker of the Year.
