Laborer, Troy, NY - June 8, 2017
All laborers would meet at the main headquarters in the morning and soon after be given various jobs to complete throughout the day. These jobs ranged from mowing lawns, cleaning parks, and installing playground equipment. I learned how to use power tools and other equipment. There was a strong culture in which we all did our best to complete each job as completely and efficiently as possible. The manual labor wasn't excruciating, but at the end of the day I could feel how tired I was from the work. It was very rewarding because I knew we were making the city a nicer place for our residents.
