Construction Laborers

History

In the past, when people wanted simple structures built, they often did the work themselves. Inevitably, the larger, more complex structures required the efforts of many workers. These workers included both skilled specialists in certain activities, and others who assisted the specialists or did other less complicated but necessary physical tasks. Today the people who provide this kind of aid are known as construction laborers. Their work usually does not require great skill, but it is essential to getting the job done.
