How hard are you prepared to work? 

How should we prepare our children to compete with a productivity ethic like this?

You have it wrong. You don't need to prepare your children, you just need to unionize the workers.

While I applaud the work ethic displayed, I'm not sure I'd mix that up with productivity. This is 2008. Surely there is a better way to move the bricks!

I agree with the last commenter. I have a ton of admiration for that kid. However....

It does not look very productive. I would think a wheelbarrow or a donkey would be alot more efficient. It is indictative of a society where labor is cheap so no one worries about using people productively. If the job doesn't get done, just add more people.

I agree with the previous posters. Productivity is based on being efficient -- using your head to carry bricks certainly is not. I'll teach my kids to use tools to actually make manual labor easier.

Bit of a shame the Ed Sullivan Show isn't still on. This would have been a natural!
