English translation:Along the lines of: On your marks, you hard working people!
Explanation:
This is likely to be a slogan from the communist era in Bulgaria urging everybody to rise up to the "challenge" of working for free for the government! Building up the team spirit and showing some sense of respect with the second part of the slogan.

Hope this helps!
