Three workers, Zeke, Jerry and Smokey, are working at a car plant and drinking their beers together. One night when they steal away from their wives to have some fun, they get the idea to rob the local union’s bureau safe.

A cool little story about three hard working blue collar guys who bite off a little bit more than they can chew when they decide to hit a safe that belongs to their own workers union. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Great performances from all the main actors, especially Pryor, such wit and furious energy. Great stuff!
"Got a two-ton hammer
got beat by the pound
I'm a hardworkin'fuckin' man
six foot solidfrom the ground
work my hammer for the factory
shit ass foreman wanna fight
swallowed up some tv dinner
swing that hammerstrong at night
when I was a schoolboy teacher said
study hard as you can
it didn't make no difference
I'm just a hardworking fucked-over man"
