Think your job is all about being careful and can’t be wrong, try building a perfectly shaped track and being a railroad worker. I'm going to explain what you have to do in this job.
You are given nails and wood and you have to spend all day hammering them into the ground. It has to be done fast because trains have to go places. so you are put on the spot to get things done quickly. To do the job fast, you have to be very strong and need to do the job correctly.
I'm going to talk about the hours of the job, type of work and payments. Most of the time, you get up before sunrise and get home right before sundown. That is about 12 to 14 hours of just hammering. Most of the time you earn minimum wage for paying purposes. You often don't get to spend time with your family and it will be hard to support them.
You have to work hard, fast and long because the more railroads you do, the more money you make.
This job may have your body and muscles aching at the end of the day. The sore muscles may happen from swinging your arms all day with a big hammer. Also, it may happen because you bend over and use your back all day long. This job has a huge risk factor. You are at risk because you are near the third rail all day long and dealing with heavy equipment. Railroad workers have to be extra careful of sparks flying everywhere.
