When I was a youngun quite a few of my mates were scaffolders.
I was out of work for a while and my friend Mark invited me to work with him for a day. I needed a week off after my first day. And I was in good shape back then. Gym muscles ≠ scaffolder muscles
I remember being in awe at how much they earned (compared to me at the time). Swings and roundabouts though. When I broke Mark's leg playing football, he was off work with no pay for about four months.
I guess you could say the job has its ups and downs.
