I've got news for you. I've worked from the military to asphalt, construction, heavy equipment, carpet and tile and catering. I now sit behind a computer screen as a design engineer. I have never known work that is harder emotionally and physically then what I am doing now. But it does pay well.

(Top 10% of wage earners pay 70% of total income taxes collected. Bottom 50% pay less then 3%, fair?)
Yeah, you wouldn’t want me to be your nurse at age 80. You wouldn’t even want me to be your nurse at age 64 which is why I retired. Dealing with potentially dangerous drugs in a chaotic environment with constant interruptions, heavy lifting, working 12hr shifts on your feet the entire time is not for anyone who is not mentally very sharp and in good physical condition.
