I nv wanted to get into construction because of the toll it take on ur body... I dont want to be falling apart at 50.

I'm jealous of the money though.... and respect the hard work that goes into it

I got two uncles who r master carpenters, and the older of the two just gave up his company after getting a job as a foreman.. he would have entire weeks where he was useless because parts of his body wouldn't work right... the younger brother isn't too far behind...

They will both need a couple surgies on their legs and hips to keep them going soon..

It's hard work. I couldn't give my body up for a job like they did

@Thegreateast: its certainly not natural in any way to get paid to break yourself....when i actually think about it it's kind of ridiculous

There is a certain level of productivity that belongs solely to that trade though... a certain level of pride can come with it..

Really a hundred years ago it was much worse, but life expectancy wasny long enough for many of these conditions to become a factor.

We can only hope we figure out better ways to do these jobs so people don't have to continue to break themselves to do it.
