he already is "out of business" or out of work anyway. People are desperate for money right now. 300 bucks for a couple few days of work is a hell of alot better than watching your kid get skinny.... and it's still much better than flipping burgers still. It sucks for the industry but whataya gonna' do?

100% bud!
So you have no problem with someone working on a chimney for two days for 300.00?How much of that 300.00 do you think they spend on insurance?Or WC? What happens when something goes wrong?Something always goes wrong eventually.Who pay's for it?

If I wanted to lose money that fast I'd take up day trading.

Jack, have you ever tried day trading? I got sucked into that crap. Thought I could sit at home all day and make big bucks. Read a bunch of books, got some magazines and opened a TD Ameritrade account. Put $5,000 in. 2 days later I had $11.10 left. So ended my stock broker career.

Stocks is paperware, easy to evaporate in thin air, uncontrollable & untouchable.

There are 2 empty lots in town that I might buy. Same guy owns both of em. He'll let me have the pair for $35K, that's a $10K discount. Both are big enough for duplexes. Wham, bam, that's 4 rental units right off the bat. That might be my next venture.

I totally agree.But....around here houses that where going for 700,000 three years ago are worth 450,000 now.Some people that bought when the buying frenzy was going are hurting if they where looking short term.
