# Restless worker (6-letter word)

I may not be the head
But strong to the bone
I bear the load of my company
I’m rarely found alone

Who am I?

Hint:

A fundamental principle
A prominent supporter
I have an alias too
That can exist on paper

My guess is

PILLAR

I may not be the head

That would be the roof of the building.

But strong to the bone

Pillars must be made of resistant materials.

I bear the load of my company

Pillars sustain the weight of their buildings.

I’m rarely found alone

There are usually more than one.

A fundamental principle

Wordplay with the fundament of a building.

A prominent supporter

Again, wordplay: the pillar supports the structure in which it's built.

I have an alias too That can exist on paper

This refers to "column", a layout used in newspaper to write articles.

Are you the

I may not be the head


It's in the foot.

But strong to the bone


I bear the load of my company


It includes the heelbone and talus, which bear a lot of weight.

Yet I’m rarely found alone


Most people have two.

• Nice guess (+1), but strong to the bone does not mean the bone itself, and your answer needs rest unlike the clue mentioned in the title. Jan 27, 2020 at 9:26

I think you may be a

PILLOW

I may not be the head

But strong to the bone

A pillow is built to withstand the pressures of your head and neck (bones)

I bear the load of my company

Very supportive during sleep of the head and neck

Yet I’m rarely found alone

I mean you could have just one pillow. I have multiple pillows, with many being around the house.

Title

A pillow does not need to rest, but it helps us rest. and it is 6 letters.

• Nice effort (+1). Technically, the pillow is soft for the bone :) Anytime you are not taking rest, the pillow is in rest. Jan 27, 2020 at 16:20
