one who fetishes work. Oftentimes the workerist will either:
a. not work much or at all
b. be a workaholic
Crusty had a trust fund and didn't work. Helen worked at the steelmill for six cents a day. Joe is looking for work but must beg for food. Alan is a manager and yuppie. Whaat they all have in common is that they will all talk about how important it is to have a strong work ethic. They are workerists.
