WHAT IS A SKILLED LABOURER?

Construction Tools

A skilled worker is someone who can handle more difficult duties and use advanced equipment to handle those tasks.

 

For instance, a client who wants the floor and wall tiles in a bathroom stripped out would need a skilled labourer with jackhammers to complete the job.

Due to their extensive construction experience, they don't require supervision and can make sound job decisions immediately.
