This is a term used to describe a new recruit in the construction trades, namely roofing, who has no prior job experience, and poor work ethics. This person is always bumming cigarettes, borrowing money from co-workers (and not paying them back), does the least amount of work, and complains about not getting paid enough.
"That lowdo borrowed a twenty from me, and he hasn't been back to work since."
