One of the things that caught my ear at this event is the concern that some field workers may not be fit enough to do the work.  The issue is previous injuries.  Another concern is high blood pressure.  Insurance and medical expenses are big areas of attention, especially if a worker is already injured when hired and then claims it happened on the job.
