My brother Ted who is 24 is wanting to get into a trade( most likely carpentry). I know things are slow as hell down there but every once in a while you do need a new guy. He has a good set of all the basic tools needed( hand tools , cordless drill, skill saw, level, etc) and knowledge of how to use them. He has a pickup truck( older F250 diesel). He is also an intelligent, hardworking and easy to get along with guy. I have little doubt he would graduate from a good helper to a great apprentice in short time. He has his green card and can work legally in the US. I'm sure anywhere in the Bay area would be fine. Please keep your ears open and thanks.
