Construction Industry (Gotta Respect It)
This shit is a serious career. I will start by saying that the pay is great, and I'm not talking my personal income because I got so much further to go. I work amongst many people that make over 100k yearly easily. People hear that and say word how can I get down. Of course that's a natural reaction to the bread but the reality of it is you work for every dollar you make, and when you lay down at night you got aches and pains. This trade isn't built for everyone. No crybabies in construction, if you a softie get a desk job. When the middle of July hits and the weather man says we are experiencing a heat wave with temperatures of 100 for the next 5 days, guess what we still expected to show up and get the shit done. Or when we got freezing weather like this week has been we are still expected to do the same. I laughed at people who say 2day I was freezing when all they had to do was commute to there temperature controlled office, or sit in the crib. Walk a day in those boots and see how these dudes go hard EVERYDAY whether its to support them self or a family. This might not count for much since I also do construction, but I salute everybody that is on this grind every morning up by 4 and swinging a hammer by 7 52 weeks a year.
