Re: nursery apparel, hats

Yeah, if you're going to be out in the sun most of the day, you gotta wear a hat. And it ought to be a tightly woven cloth hat. UV penetrates the loose weave of straw as though you were hatless.

But, Kitty, I forgot to ask--what kind of nursery is this? Retail like Franks or Home Depot? A grower and shipper, like Gene? A retail cell-pack repackager like David? A landscaper-grower like I work for? Kind can make a big difference about predominance of the work.

I started my current nursery job at $6.75 an hour because I opted out of health insurance [I've got Medicare]. But the raises have been steady [now at $11.50 per hour, which is still a long way from the $300 a day I caged in Washington a few years ago] and the bonuses have been generous.

Just thought of something that might weigh 75 pounds--a 15-gallon plant of any kind. But, of course, if they don't have lift belts and dollies, OSHA would likely be interested.
