How would you say arrimar el hombro meaning we all have to work together... Todos tenemos qie arrimar el hombro para sacar a este país de esta horrible recesión. Everybody has to lend a hand??? to get this country out of this awful recession. I found lend a hand in the dicctionar but I am afraid it means something like give a hand? echar una mano which is not the same as " arrimar el hombro. Thanks a lot.
