You Gotta Work For It

Blue Collar Pride

The Hands That Built America.

DMAXRYNO got his start in the world of masonry and concrete. He had such passion for the field he was compelled to learn more about the other trades, soon becoming a general contractor.

In 2014 he'd had enough with the lack of respect for the trades. That’s when he took it upon himself to launch Workforit, a brand dedicated to the blue collar worker, and restoring pride in blue collar work.

Working For It With DMAXRYNO

Look around. You’re surrounded by things built by the American blue collar. Every road, structure, bridge and yard of concrete—and the steel, block and brick they’re made of—was forged into existence by men and women willing to get their hands dirty. These are the jobs we should be proud of. Restoring that pride is the mission of DMAXRYNO [dee/maks/r-eye-noh].

We’re talking construction, mining, maintenance, agriculture and manufacturing to name a few. The jobs where you physically bust your ass to earn your keep. The jobs many of us have been led to believe we’d be considered a failure if we ended up doing them.

DMAXRYNO will tell you different. What he sees is massive opportunity to make serious money and build a career from a young age, paired with the intrinsic pride and satisfaction of getting a job done right.


With explosive growth on his YouTube channel, a global reach with his movement and a roughed-up blue collar mane, it’s clear there is an army of people out there searching for a brand just like this.

You can hear his story, insights on hard work and what it means to Workforit when you listen to DMAXRYNO on Let It Ride.

  1. and a longhair ” forçat de la route” ( road convict): Quinn Simons, only longhair racer on Tour de France:
    hilarious: as he his member of Segafredo team, there is a team called Alpecin: Alpecin is a caffeine added shampoo supposed increase hair growth speed…but no longhair racer in !!!!
    the Tour de France is a bike race during 3 weeks around France, this year mid temp: 86°F ( 30°C) around 100 miles every day

  2. This was a powerful conversation that I wanted to jump in while running the podcast.

    Years ago I did a photography show called American Dreamers which highlighted people in the skilled trades. I was compelled to this highlight because at the time (still happening now) a large number of folks were complaining about job shortages, but when I checked out some labor statistics in the US there was a high demand for the skilled trades. Skilled trades are jobs too!

    I later picked up a video gig documenting the construction process of a night club build out and met many blue collar workers. Surprisingly a good number of the peeps I spoke to were paid well and quite happy.

    If people look around for opportunity, it’s there. Here at The Longhairs, the biggest opportunity here is to provide for an awesome community.

      Well said Garv! So true about the current state of the trades. Extremely high demand. If you’re young and want to make good money right out the gate it’s really one of the best moves right now in todays market.
