Michigan = Titanic

Question for you guys. I currently live in Michigan, have a
**** ton of HVACR experience, have a four year degree in HVACR, but am trying to get into plumbing. Need the experience to get my license in plumbing. I have applied to quite a few unions here but every one of them says they will give me an apprenticeship but cannot guarentee me a job.
Any other states out there or guys in plumbing unions in other states that are doin well?

New Jersey, my friend, come on out. The HVAC side of the hall is out of guys (journeymen), there are none sitting.

Las Vegas is almost always looking for help, you can check for openings at their local on line I think.
I may be going to hell in a bucket, but at least I'm enjoying the ride.

Re: Michigan = Titanic

I think that there are around 145-155 on the bench in Northern Michigan.
The guys are getting offers to work on the west side of the country and northern Canada.
A business agent was going to sign me up for about 174.00 dollars. Not to bad to get into the apprentice program though, but chances are no one would sponser me and I would not gain any plumbing experience in Michigan.
He said that I would have a golden opertunity in Alberta, thought about it, thought about what my wife and daughter would try to kill me with if I moved them to the middle of nowhere, and walked out of his office never to contact him again. We have a steady increase in our unions but that is the fact that no one can find a job.
