When I go for a walk to stock up on food supplies for work I generally walk past some big construction work in the centre of the city I live in. As I walk past in my suit and tie I look at the guys working construction and get very jealous of their jobs.
These guys spend their days working with their hands and their bodies to create something huge. They get to be active all day and spend most of the time in the fresh air. I earn a decent income and whilst the majority of guys would earn less than I do some of them would earn more than me.
Do you think that any of the people working construction look at the guys and gals walking past in their suits and get jealous of the people that have the ‘professional’ type jobs.
Let me qualify this a bit by saying that I have never worked a manual labour job so I dont know how it feels to work like that for weeks on end.
My thoughts are that there are some people in the construction game that would want the ‘professional’ job but that number would be tiny compared to the number of people in my position who would love to be out there working on the site using you hand, body and mind on a daily basis rather than sitting in an office.
What are your thoughts?
