“I worked my way though college and law school as a carpenter, back when you could actually earn enough in the summer to pay for a year of college. I still use my tools on home and community projects. I know my way around a job site, and realize the physical demands of occupations such as construction, manufacturing, logging, fishing and processing, nursing and driving/delivery.”
