Odds of Hanging On

Depends on the part of the carpentry world in which you’re involved, the part of the country you are in, and how you deal inside or outside of your union (the unions influencing work decisions in your area). Also, if you’re building something on the third story or higher of a newly constructed structure and you slip and fall, your hanging on skills may become even more important. Someone should be by in a bit to help you down.
