It just seems to me as individuals we have the choice to take on a job or not take on a job. GB offers a opportunity and for some thatís a dream job for others itís disability in the waiting. We arenít all built the same and just because someone has weak wrists doesnít mean someone else doesnít have the strength to not destroy their body doing the same job. I just hate the law suite happy ideals that seem to be supported here. You can pretty much pick any industrial trade and find fault in ergonomics. We are in a field that requires strength stamina and enough of a brain to not destroy ourselves.

My simple mind thinks like this:
Local feed store needs someone to unload 50lb feed bags. Strong you man says hell yes and makes it into a great job for himself. Another man makes it into a permanent disability.

Was the disability the fault of the feed store owner?

Please donít misunderstand Iím not saying as a owner of a business they arenít responsible for the safety of their employees but if the job description says unloading 50lb feed bags it seems pretty clear to me.
