Crews working in sub-zero temperatures in La Crosse
LA CROSSE, WI — During our recent heat wave, you may be jealous of what’s really the coolest job in town.
Workers in the freezer section of the Kwik Trip Distribution Center spent their day in below zero temperatures.
Employees are bundled up in coats, hats, and gloves to handle the chill. One employee we caught up with says he used to work outside and that’s given him an added appreciation to be freezing.
“Actually it’s a great felling on these hot days, I mean, I kind of look forward to it because I’m not good in the heat,” said Brandon Garrison, freezer puller at Kwik Trip.
But not everyone’s on board for the sub-zero work. Some crews working out in the heat told us they’d rather be in the sun and take the right precautions than bundle up every day.
Health experts say people who work outside should drink double the amount of water they usually would.
“I don’t know if I’d like that, we’ve had a cold summer and cold spring so far, and we just started to get a little warmth,” said Jason Sobotta, of Signatures Design Construction. “[Drink] plenty of water and try to work in the shade and you’ll be all right, get used to it after a while.”
