I work for a tow company which I will not disclose for company rules disclaimer reasons. And there are times that I have worked day in and day out without a single day off for almost 4 months with maybe 2 to 3 hours sleep, I believe that this job should require 1-2 days off because of the simple fact that not only are you risking your own life as a driver, but also most importantly you are risking the publics lives as well. I have witness and heard of disasters that have occured in accidents because of fatigue and not getting enough sleep. So this type of job should go in to cosideration laws as pilots,Semi Truck Drivers or anything that reqires you to work in and around the public for safety reasons.
