An OverviewA Laborer III performs tasks of more than ordinary difficulty. An employee in this class must be able to perform heavy physical labor safely and efficiently. The Laborer III class differs from Laborer I and Laborer II in that tasks require a greater degree of skill and knowledge of departmental operations.
