The broad mass of city-dwellers enjoy a precarious living. Most hire themselves out a Labourers, usually on a temporary basis. Most Labourers are loud, burly, brusque individuals who like nothing better than singing or whistling, climbing around insanely dangerous scaffolding, drinking prodigious amounts of herbal tea, and occasionally working extremely hard. Their lives are hardly secure and they command a fairly low wage compared to the Artisan classes, but when there is plenty of work, Labourers prosper. The best jobs involve the building of temples, fortifications, large houses, and the like, because then work is guaranteed for a longer period. They are practical men and when they turn to adventuring, as many do in times of unemployment, they are often successful.[1a]
