Meet women who weld! Welders are usually men, but women are finding jobs in the industry now too.

One of the most dangerous but well-paying welding careers is underwater welding. These welders have to be specially trained in diving because they might work over a thousand feet below the surface. Underwater welders may work on oil rigs, ships, pipelines, or dams. Their work is important. It must be done correctly to prevent oil spills and other dangerous situations.
