This is why I luv The Mighty!!! Up the Workers!!! (Which is most of us now) "Bum on the rods" is the same as "Ridin' the rods". Dirty thirties boxcars had support rods under the box cars...Bums would roll in on them to escape the rail police. I have ridden "The rods" but in empty boxcars & open flats...& Empty diesel engines... & Avoided the Police! Engine crews would share food! So, Up the Workers! Every day is Labour Day!
