We’ve all heard the saying that “April showers bring May flowers.” (And some of us still appreciate the grade school ending of “And what do Mayflowers bring?

PA Work Wrongful Death Attorney

A famous French philosopher once said, “Work banishes those three great evils: boredom, vice, and poverty.” It’s certainly true that Americans work hard.
