Where should a tech consider moving?
I've been in the trade for almost 6 years. I'm a fourth year apprentice in the UA. My wife and I are considering moving with our girls in a couple of years. Where are some good places for a union tech with commercial experience to move? Why is it a good location?

The Arizona UA Local can't provide any HVACR guys to its contractors. Tucson & surrounding area is $29.70/Hr. and the rest of the state is $33/Hr. for Building Trades Commercial Service Journeyman/HVACR Tech.

Dallas, Tx....Union commercial guys running around $28 per hour.
No state income tax, good cost of living, plenty of family activities available.
Technical incompetence is NOT a sales tool....

there is generally good opportunity for ua guys near large cities. you need to decide what you want out of life, which areas can provide that, and then look at employment. here in philly, we have beaches at the jersey shore an hour or so away, small mountains for skiing in winter an hour or so away, lots of things to do, from museums, to history, to restaurants and major sports teams to name a few. heavy commercial guys top out at around fifty per hour plus bennies.
