Didn't know the president was responsible for the state of the economy, news to me. Also didn't know he plays golf...

Furthermore, who do you think is going to arrive in 2012 ,wave their magic wand, and save the world?

Re: Finding Work


I thought the world was going to end in 2012, no use in finding a job if that is going to happen.

I did.

No political posts will be tolerated in the standard areas of the forum. I moved it in to the P&R section.

Re: Finding Work


Gordey, I'm an electrical contractor who has to keep 18 guys in the field buisy every day in Los Angeles. It's probably not really in my best interest to give you information that will help you take potential business away from my own company, but, after reading this thread, I can't help emphasizing with you.

Re: Finding Work


If you want to do electrical service work for homeowners, DON'T tell them you're an electrician. Tell them you're a handyman specializing in plumbing. Then, they'll hire you to do electrical work (probably concrete and roofing too). If you tell them you specialize in electrical work, you'll get plenty of work fixing drywall and installing cabinets.
