For the past couple of months, I've been daily driving by the site where Sears is being built. I've been seeing all the workers, some in their machines, some on the road, others in other places. Mostly they seem busy.
Lately I've been wondering how it is they remain busy. Are they each told, each day, what they are expected to accomplish? When the bulldozer guy, for instance, goes to work in the morning, does he have a good idea of what he's going to be doing that day, or does he wait to find out from a foreman what his job is? Is the bulldozer guy in fact a "bulldozer guy"? Or does he somedays work the bulldozer, and other days pour concrete?
Who is it that decides these things, and how early in the process are they decided?What if bulldozer guy calls in sick?
What if foreman calls in sick?
Is it stressful work, or just tedious hard work, or both?
Will I be able to sleep tonight?
