Cons: could very easily get hurt
No two days were the same. It is an "Only the strong survive" grind. My immediate Foremen were the best. Being female in this line of work, I was in a class all by myself. The hardest/best thing about my job was it showed me what I was made of. Having a smaller build I could go and do things that the men could not.
