I just got a new job last week at a factory where I have to stand for 8 hours a day (and not a minute less
) with only one 20 min break in the middle of the day.
By the end of the day, my legs hurt a little, my back hurts a lot, and my feet really hurt a lot. Is there anyone in here who's worked long days at a factory, and has shoes that they would recommend?
Steel toed shoes are not mandatory, but are recommended. However, @ a third of the other workers wear tennis shoes. So I'll take either. I've tried asking co-workers, but noone has had a pair of shoes there yet that they'd recommend, which I expected since I noticed most of those people stop their machines every 5-10 minutes to crack their backs.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
