Darrel shares his story about being a construction laborer.
He calls himself a "gopher" because he performs so many different duties on the job. Darrel says he got into this line of work because he father was also in construction. He can now build just about anything he puts his mind to. His advice: think about safety, because this is a dangerous job.
Construction laborers do a variety of construction-related activities during all phases of construction. Although most laborers are generalists—such as those who install barricades, erect scaffolds, set up cones, and markers to control traffic patterns—many others specialize. For example, those who operate the machines and equipment that lay concrete or asphalt on roads are more likely to specialize in those areas.
