Construction is often thought of as a slow, tedious process.
But it’s not just the construction workers who are busy, says Sarah D’Alembert, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Diego, who studies the labour markets of construction workers.
They are also the people who are often involved in making the project happen.
“The people who really do the construction are usually the ones who are working very long hours,” she says.
Building a house from scratch is a very long process, and they are also working on it for years, D’Ambert says.
The work is very physically demanding, and it can take decades to build a house.
This makes it hard to get a good return on investment, especially in a country where it’s cheaper to build houses than it is to hire workers.
“When you do a project like this, you need to make sure you get the best possible outcome,” D’Embert tells Al Jazeera.
This means making sure that workers have the skills needed to be part of the process.
“So when we say that a worker is ‘in the box’, we are talking about a construction worker,” says D’Anastasia Krasnikova, a researcher at the Institute of Geography at the Russian Academy of Sciences, in Moscow.
“This is a process of creating the building, and the building is the product of the labour.”
D’Armbert and D’Krasnikov study how workers in construction work, and how they have been affected by the changing nature of work.
They have found that workers in a construction industry have often been affected to the point of suicide.
They also found that many of the men who work in the construction industry are highly stressed, and are not happy with their jobs.
“What I find is that men are extremely depressed because they are not getting a good salary, and also because they don’t have the same rights that they have when they are in a traditional factory,” Dereza Khodorkovsky, a PhD candidate in architecture at the Tbilisi Technical University, says.
Khodorksky has spent more than 20 years studying the lives of construction construction workers in the Caucasus.
She says many men in construction have taken to drinking alcohol to cope with their stress.
Dereez says many of these men are young and unemployed.
“They do not have the opportunity to learn, and if they do learn, they have no job prospects,” she explains.
The researchers have found a correlation between high levels of stress and a decrease in the number of marriages.
They found that in a recent survey, women in the region were more likely to have had more than one partner.
“Women have been making fewer and fewer decisions, and that is very stressful for them,” Drezova Khodarkovsky says.
“In a way, they are becoming more and more dependent on the men for support.”
Construction is also a very competitive field, and many workers are motivated to try their luck at it.
This often means working in dangerous conditions.
In some parts of the Caucasus, it can be dangerous to be alone.
The construction industry is also in dire need of skilled labour.
There is a shortage of engineers, designers and architects.
There are also a large number of construction labourers, and there are also shortages of skilled labourers.
There were some signs that construction workers were starting to have more freedom.
In January 2017, the construction ministry in the Russian Federation announced that the first batch of construction apprentices would be given the chance to work in Russia’s newly-opened industrial parks.
Construction is an industry where the workforce is constantly growing, and is highly competitive.
However, there are many barriers to entry.
Drezovan Khodorovsky, an expert on the construction sector, says it’s important to make it easy for the workers to get their foot in the door.
“A lot of construction is done by remote workers, so you can’t make the workers as comfortable,” he says.
Construction labourers are usually employed by state-owned companies.
Some of them are also contractors.
These contractors, however, are also highly skilled and are well-paid.
“These workers are skilled workers,” says Khodrorovsky.
They usually have very little formal training, and most of them have completed their training at university.
“For a very small number of people, they can’t work in a factory,” he adds.
This is partly because they need to find other work.
In 2016, the Ministry of Construction gave the first draft of the legislation on apprenticeship that was passed in Russia.
It was intended to improve the labour market, but it also includes provisions for the training of construction staff.
The bill allows construction companies to hire up to eight people per job, but only for a fixed period of time, so they can decide whether to hire them or not.
According to Khodorsky, many contractors have refused to
