Pride in his work

The Weekend Post - - News -

SAM Wat­son is a 22-year-old plumber work­ing with Cairns com­pany Aca­cia Plumb­ing.

He has been in the plumb­ing game for five years and earns about $70,000 a year.

“The best thing about the work is fin­ish­ing the job and be­ing able to step back and look at what you have achieved,” Mr Wat­son said.

On the down­side the heat while work­ing in ceil­ings and dig­ging holes in the hot sun could be tough in the sum­mer, he said.

“The trop­i­cal heat sucks a bit in this job,” he said.

He said it was a good job and ad­vised young work­ers to take pride in what they did.
