Taglohner has various meanings for "day laborer". This is not someone standing in front of a store window waiting for signs that a dishwasher or a gardener is needed that day. Also it is not like the
migrant farm worker.
A Taglohner might have worked the same job for years, merely that he was
paid by the day. The job could have been a decent job, an important job at that level. In other words, he was not a bum; he easily could have been a very responsible person in the town just that his skills, his abilities were constrained to a certain level. By DJ Weber
