"Hard Yakka" is Aussie slang for describing hard physical labo(u)r. For example, if on the weekend I had to put in a new fence in my backyard, I might say to my colleagues something like "Digging the holes for those fence posts in the %^&#$ clay soil was bloody hard yakka, I can tell you."

I am not sure of the origins of the expression, but there has been a range of working clothes, made here in Australia for decades, called "Yakka". I don't know what came first, the clothes or the expression. Of course, their advertisements for their work clothes show a whole lot of big, fit, strong men wearing their "Yakka" work clothes, pulling mining equipment, digging holes, or whatever, in the hot Australian sun, while there is a chant of "hard yakka, hard yakka".

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
