Pros: member of the empire state contractors association for retirement plan, insurance, training, etc.
I started working for Eastern Rock Products, now Hanson, in 1975 after working for a different contractor. Being one of the first women to work in the construction field,the men on the job took me under their wings and taught me the basics of construction. Long work hours and being away from home were the hardest part the past few years, but I enjoyed the changing work sites, night work, etc. My co-workers were friendly and almost always lent a helping hand.
