Yep that's where I was going with that. Working with your hands on a hobby you enjoy on the weekends is different from being plucked from your job to do tedious manual labor for hours a day, so I still maintain my original viewpoint. I actually hope I'm not right because as I'm scheduled now, I'm likely to be in the "office worker batch'. I guess we'll have to agree to disagreeI took it as you were suggesting that line workers work with their hands, while "office workers" work with their brains and white-collar skills and would not be able to fill in working with their hands efficiently. I know plenty of white collar or salaried employees who worked manual labor and/or enjoyed hobbies that ended up in salaried positions at some point, but worked with their hands most of their lives outside of their employment at any given period in the career. I am 1 of them.
