Construction Careers - a Job Someones Got to Do

By: Ajeet Khurana

The construction worker is the backbone of society since the advent of human civilization. But not too many people seem to notice that. And the role of the construction worker extends as far as the eye can see. You wouldn't be able to go to the hospital for unforeseen emergencies because it wouldn't exist. And you wouldn't be able to argue with your spouse on your iPhone on your way to work. Why? Because the road you are driving on wouldn't exist. The job of the construction worker is one that is always forgotten unless, while you are on that iPhone, you run into a traffic jam caused by a construction route. It is rather sad when construction workers are blamed when all they are doing is what they have been told to do. But construction workers are responsible for bringing life to the cities that we dwell in, and for not only making them lively, but making them safe as well. There are different kinds of construction workers that offer us varying elements of peace of mind every day, without us even realizing it.

Did you recently look at a real life monument or a beautiful building? Did you take a moment to stop and think of the labor of love that went into that structure to ensure you had a cozy fire to sit next to? Probably not. But the construction worker that was responsible for those unforgettable moments of yours is known as the bricklayer. This is a man that installs or repairs brick structures such as your chimney or fireplace, your walkway or driveway, or your beautiful brick home. This worker is no dummy. They need to be able to create and perform strict calculations, problem solve, conduct document interpretation for building layouts, and organize routines and tasks on a daily basis. If you have a fireplace in your home, you should think of the work of the construction worker that lent you your domestic warmth.

Would you like to visit a jazz club? How about a dancing joint? Many people do across all age demographics and it is easy to understand why. Nightclubs and jazz clubs are a fun way to relax with some friends and unwind after a long week. Perhaps you are one of those that appreciate the joys of the disco ball and the dance floor. Next time you are on the dance floor enjoying all the fun a disco ball, consider what it took to ensure this ball was placed there for you. Disco balls are rotating spheroids that hang from the ceilings and produce a number of light reflectors at the people beneath them. To install a disco ball requires the labor of skilled engineers and construction workers to ensure the ball is not only hung properly so that it works efficiently, but that it is hung in a manner that will be safe for all patrons. It is great to enjoy with friends and family. But when you are doing that, it would be great to also acknowledge the knowledge, experience, wisdom and effort of the construction people.

So when you are on your fancy iPhone telling all and sundry about the lousy traffic conditions caused by construction, remember these people are doing their job. The end result of a job well done by a construction worker results in the safety and well being of you and your dear ones.
