I love my job. I love being a heavy-equipment tireman, however after doing this job for over 20 years my back and body needs a break. I am attending Sacramento State University in hopes of earning my BA degree so that I will be able to transfer to a less labor intensive job, one that will allow me to walk upright and not wake up in the morning in chronic – more... lower back pain. I'm not ashamed to work in a office/supervisory job, it's just as admirable and dignified as working strenuosly on a concrete shop floor. The hardest part of my job consist of bending over and picking up 200 pound tires. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I am able to perform my Local 39, International Brotherhood of Operating Engineers shop stewart duties, this gives me a chance to assist my coworkers in myriad ways, most of them positive. – less
