Dan Duffy has been a proud union carpenter for 33 years. He grew up in Brighton, where he learned the trade and where he still lives....and works! Though his retirement is secure, he works to help his sons pay for their education and simply because he enjoys it.

"I enjoy the trade. I’d like to stay with it as long as I can. I like getting up in the morning, building things, and talking to carpenters and other tradespeople. I like working with my hands and working with people who are dedicated to the trade and to the Carpenters union. I’d like to teach apprentices how to do the work properly, watch out for their safety and bring them up in the same standard/fashion that I was brought up in. It’s a good way of life, it’s a good living."
