The heating and cooling workers wake up at sunrise to get to work by 7am

I have been toiling a late afternoon and early evening task for the past 12 years.

At first I was a stringer reporter for the activitys area at my local newspaper.

I gained calls at night from middle school coaches reporting the results of the evening’s games. Having this task for several years made me used to toiling in the evening hours. By the time I graduated school, I was already looking for modern work and managed to secure a remote task as a cellphone worker. To my luck, I was given an evening shift yet again. I enjoy having the ability to sleep in and stay up late enjoy I did in school. Not everyone has this privilege. My seasoned school roommate is toiling at a band these mornings, and his shift starts at 9am. Since his lunch hours are not paid work time, he doesn’t get to leave the building until 6pm in the afternoon. My friend the Heating and Air Conditioning worker has it even worse. He has to be at the heating and cooling warehouse by 7am every single day. The tasks that he’s assigned to each afternoon start as early as 7:30 to 8am. He works until 5pm on normal mornings and even later when he’s forced into an overtime shift. He says that toiling as an air conditioner and oil furnace worker is the hardest work he has ever done in his life. This is someone who previously worked in the food and hospitality industry for over 10 years before training as an Heating and Air Conditioning apprentice. He knows what it’s enjoy to work a back cutting task, and apparently heating and cooling has been the hardest thus far.
