In this week’s episode of On the Job, we hear the career journey of Oregon concrete finisher Liz Nichols.
Liz had a checklist – she wanted to work outdoors and make enough money to support her family. After a few false starts, she found just the right fit as a concrete mason. Even though she was often the only woman on the job, she learned to navigate that new world with grace and will pass along to her son the lessons that hard work and perseverance are rewarded
Jobs give us a connection to our communities and the ability to provide for ourselves and our families. Your work may be your passion or it could just be the way you make ends meet. Each week, On the Job will share stories about the pursuit of work by delving into the employment situations people from all walks of life face each day.
