I wanted a job that`s permanent. You know what I mean? Like who knows what kind of jobs there will be in 20 years? They say the future jobs are in technology so that’s not going to work for me.  But I figured construction jobs will be here forever because we’re always going to build things.  Being a labourer is perfect for me, except we prefer to be called construction craft workers now because a lot of the things we do need a fair bit of skill.  Anyway, I really like the fact that I have lots of variety in my job, I’m basically outside most of the time and if I want to do something completely different I can get training and switch pretty easy.   The biggest bonus is that the pay is fantastic compared to what I’d probably be making in anything else I would have ended up doing. So when I got into construction six years ago I was working the flag on this street right downtown where we were building a new condo but pretty soon they had me do doing the back-up signalling with the delivery trucks and our equipment on the site. After that I worked for a demolition contractor and that was pretty good because usually we build stuff and it was kind of fun to just tear things apart for a change.   I spent a year with a sewer and watermain contractor helping with the trench shoring and moving the pipes into place.  I started with my current company a year ago and so far it’s the best job I’ve had so far.  We do mid-rise condos and multi-unit buildings, upper end, and I’m kind of in charge of making sure all the sites are clean and safe.  I actually have four people that report to me.
