Talking Finding Help

Good luck, I wish you well in your search.

I am asked almost every day if I know any good people looking for work.

My answer is almost always if they are any good they have all the work they want. Of course there is the fact that some of the huge mechanical contractors have laid off due to there high overhead. Then again for the most they are union.
Some days it takes longer to pick which welder

then to do the welding

Out of work in jax,Fl

I was a fabricator in a shop who's cars run $100,00 a build, own all of my own fab equipment,and have been doing this for 40 years(just turned 60)and no one will give me work. Had a back operation in 2005 to fix L5/S2 and it worked.( Only suppose to lift 40 lbs ) We finished all of our projects in Dec 2007 and had builds logged in for the next 2 years........then every thing started going going south and no one brought their projects in and the shop laid me off till things picked up ......nada nothing and the shop is doing oil changes and truck service work to get by. All the fab shops see me as a workman's comp libility, even thopugh they don't say it. Most are on a skeleton crew, wives doing the paper work and kids cleaning the shop, so the crew can go home early. Some are doing 6 hour day or 4 day weeks.The wife gave me a job as house keeper and repair man.....onlyu thing good is the benifits........
