Do you ever hear a term that you understand the "gist" of, but don't quite have the words to define?

For Jyst, the term "Foundational Worker" is at the core of everything we do; and we are using it to reframe the discourse around a workforce in service that is very broad.  

Who are we talking about? Let us start to define our new term by painting a picture of a Day Without the Foundational Worker.
