Roofers do not have an easy job.

In driving around Denver, you will assuredly see a lot of construction and buildings being updated.  One of the great things about the city is that we are just now starting to hit our stride as one of the best places to live in the country.  I have had the opportunity to travel around quite a bit and it’s great to be able to visit a lot of the other great cities in the United States.  Nevertheless, in thinking about places that I would like to live, not many of those cities match what Denver has to offer in terms of being a city that is growing, laid back, and yet business like when it needs to be.  I have really enjoyed my time here and look forward to spending more time here.  Nevertheless, the reason why I bring up all of this stuff is that I have seen a lot of new construction in our city.  Most of the time, this construction is of new apartment buildings close to or in downtown.  They seem to be shooting up like there are not other options.  I am not sure how I feel about this, but I definitely hope that the majority of these places have retail space on the bottom and are mixed income.  Nevertheless, in seeing all of these different places being constructed, I can’t help but think of the people that are actually doing the building.  I find that I kind of feel bad for the people because they are having to spend a lot of time in the cold.  My organization is building a new building and even when the temperatures got down to zero degrees they were out there doing work.  I have to say that it is probably pretty difficult to be a roofer in Denver right now because of the winter and the need to still do your job.  It may not get much easier for the summer because then you have to deal with all of the heat and that is probably the busiest time of the year for most of the roofing companies in Denver.  I really do hope that these companies are able to pay their workers a decent amount to do what they are doing.  They play such a critical role in the building of our city that I would want to make sure that the roofers are being taken care of by their companies.  I am not sure what the policies are in this regard, but it would be interesting to do a bit more research on the topic to see what it would be like for someone to be working those jobs.  Healthcare is a big issue in our community, so being able to make sure that all of the new buildings and the future of our city is not being built on the backs of those that are not being taken care of is very important to me.  It would definitely be worth checking out in my opinion.
