The correlation was, your need for surgery is a result (i believe) of working X amount of years in a labor field "earning a living". If you were the elevator guy, you might not need surgery, and would be getting paid to eat a ham on easter.

I think that is one of the highest paid trades.

Antenna repairmen atop the Empire State Building do pretty well.

Elevator work is sort of interesting. I follow the guy around. Go in the penthouse. look at the relays 480volts. Learn why it doesn't always stop in the same exact place. Big motors on those things. The two we have were put in early 60s and an older one that may have been the first elevator in this town. Has double doors that both need to be closed manually. They are a little more labor intensive to service. I like irrigation but I'd work for 200 bucks an hour in the elevator business in a heartbeat. Wouldn't care for the union stuff but I'd deal with it and then vote against them every chance I got.

I have a buddy with a contract for the light bulbs in radio towers all over the north east. Talk about a good paycheck. He offered to get me into it a few years back but theres no way my knees could ever talk climbing like that
