What strong work ethic means is you are responsible for your job. Like for example, school could be like your job and you need to be up and ready to get to school on time. And you are doing what you have to do first before anything else. In school work ethic would probably mean is getting to class on time and doing your wok like you was supposed to be doing. Work ethic in my life would probably mean is that being responsible for your goals and doing what you need to be doing to succeed or getting to where you want to be getting!!!
