Nature of Trade
Because they assist other tradesmen, the laborer is one of the most important employees in construction. Construction laborers work on trenching, footing and foundations, and move materials which must be moved by hand and by power equipment. They do the general housekeeping on the job and provide services to other trades.
The term “laborers” is used to represent a number of jobs, such as asphalt shoveler, bracer, bridge maintenance workers, building attendant, caulker, delivery worker, equipment worker, jack hammer operator, lansing burners, signal man, pipesetter, etc.
