    Actually I found a 2 Br condo in a high-rise along the Chicago River for $2000/mo. No it's not the Trump Plaza or anything like that! Anyways I couldn't find anything similar to that in Miami for...

    Go straight to the shop. Most OEMs will hire off of the streets, if you're willing to be under the national CBA. Right-to-work or non-right-to-work shouldn't matter in the aspect of getting into a...

    I remember when Honeywell went to using the Fasttool & GPS. The receiver was ginormous, some vans even had it on top of their ladder rack. This was in 2001 though.
