there was on summer job last year where they did provide us with clothes to work in. Well not really clothes, but coveralls, shirts, gym shorts, sweat pants, steel toed boots, gloves, hardhats, eye protection and molded ear protetion. Something about the clothing being a certain type of cloth to protect our skin from chemical burns from the cement. (yes it does burn, i lots a LOT of arm hair that summer.)

What was I doing? Pouring cement. A dirty job, so that is why they bought all the gear for us. They washed it, took care of it, mended it if it ripped, bought us a new size if it got small/bigger.

Sure the job was union, and paid damn well, but those added benifits would easily make me come back. And union fees for me were about $10.00CND a month.

Kiss your keyboard goodbye!

Working...
