    Moonrunner......please don't rub it in to the yanks about their junior's Hockey team loss to the little country of Canada .... that of course kicks their a$$es every time we play the mighty USA....they're real touchy about being losers....!!! I've suggested we get the Canadian girls team to play their men's team to make it a bit more fair to them......but they woosed out on that too.......
    Besides......they are all on their way over the fiscal cliff.......

    I guess I must be the exception. We couldn't have pro hockey in the US if it wasn't for players from Canada. We could build a couple of teams from our northern midwest, and maybe the northeast. But we could never put the number of teams on the ice that play at the current levels it we didn't have a good bunch of guys from north of the border.

    Hard to imagine someone not being able to recognize their importance.

    Go to Ft. McMurray.......they are hiring reefer techs/mechanical foremen for $20-22,000 PER MONTH!!!!! And you get to live rent/food/o/h free.
    We will be 20,000 - 100,000 skilled tradesmen short in the next decade so they are advertising in California for workers.....that would be of course instead of training/hiring from within.....moron politicians....

    It sems they have an entire list of certificates I have never heard of, and they want you to have them just to apply. They want diplomas instead of experience, apparently.

    Desired Skills & Certifications include:
    + Skilled Trade Certification
    + Post-secondary Degree or Diploma
    + First Aid Certificate
    + Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Certificate
    + Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Certificate
    + Hydrogen Sulphide Awareness (H2S) Certificate
    + Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP)
    + Certified Safety Professional (CSP)
    + Certified Health and Safety Consultant (CHSC)
    Do you have the desired skills, work experience or certifications listed above?
    If so, Oil Patch Jobs would like to connect you to international opportunities.


    No wonder they can't find workers.

    My state does not have an HVAC license, so I can't even say I have a "skilled trade certification."

    No post secondary diploma, even though I taught a college class.

    Ah, well.

    That'd be the 47% attitude and ambition level....geeze, wonder why the USA is in such a predicament with their economy.
    Hang on I'll call them all and see if I can get them to come down there to pat you on the head and hold your hand.
    Wonder where the heck this generation got the 'entitlement' attitude from.
