The world is not ready for the arrival of the crane operator.
We are all just waiting for the next crane operator to arrive.
But the one who’s already here is a new breed of crane operator who’s ready for business.
Carnival Australia, the operator of the Crows Nest amusement park, has a crane operator and the world’s largest live-streaming entertainment system in place.
The crane operator has been working for about a year on his debut in Australia and is now one of the world leaders in the live-casting business.
The new operator, named John, is in the final stages of his training and will start working on his crane next week.
He said he was excited to work with the operator who has been training for the past 12 months.
“I think we’re really looking forward to it,” he said.
“The crane is a very, very important part of the entertainment system.
It’s the gateway into the show and it’s the centrepiece of the attraction.”
Carnivals have a history of hiring crane operators from overseas.
The operator, who has no formal training, said he got into the job to provide entertainment for tourists, while also keeping the amusement park afloat.
John said he had been offered the job on a full-time basis for about $10,000 per week.
“I’m working with the owner who has this big attraction here and he’s looking for someone to be a crane guy,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne’s Metro Morning.
“It’s quite an exciting time for me.”
John’s father was a crane worker in India before he decided to move to Australia in 2010 to open the Cows Nest amusement theme park.
He worked as a crane man at the theme park until 2013 when he retired and returned to India.
He then decided to become a crane specialist in the US and went on to work as a live-cast operator in Australia.
John said the crane experience was different to working in the circus, where he could get a good feel for the environment.
“We don’t have the circus environment and the people we work with here don’t get to see the circus as much as we do,” he added.
“There’s always people around, there’s always someone around to make sure everything’s OK.”
Carnies can be really quiet and the live shows can be quite tense.
“Calls for crane operators to be given paid leaveCarnages own crane operator John is the only person to be granted paid leave to train on a new crane.
His father, who is also an operator, said there were a few other crane operators in the workforce who needed more time off.”
This is the first time I’ve heard of people being paid to work,” he explained.”
They’re paid a bit more than what we’re making and they’re paid at a bit less than what they’re making.
He said this was not a good situation for the operator to be in.
“When you’re working as a worker for Carnival, you’re getting paid a lot, but you’re not getting paid enough for your safety, your health and the things that go with that.”
Cargo operator says he is ‘shocked’ to be the first to work for CarnivalCargo operators are not the only crane operators who are thrilled with the arrival.
The operator who started off working for Carnival in 2011 is the new operator.
He’s the first crane worker to get paid leave for his experience and is currently in training to work at the amusement resort.
“That’s quite exciting,” John said.
