Summary
A lighthearted look at what building a skyscraper would be like. The Great Depression has hit you hard, and you should grab any job you can get. The monumental task of being a skyscraper builder is dizzying, but here are some top tips from the experts: don't look down; steer clear when the blasters are at work; don't say no to night work--the hours are long and lonely, but you need the money; and practice your catching--you'll have to grab all the red-hot rivets that the furnace man flings at you
