I was posting an HVAC news group a while back. Mostly residential guys. I wont comment. Some were bright on some issues though.

    I can tell you for sure that quality coming out of american engineering offices would blow your mind...too many storys to tell. Just totally south in the 80 to 90% range. People with no clue. A 5% competency rate from my perspective. 40% able to issue something that a contractor could at least build into something workable...and fully 50% producing nothing less than complete disasters.. the contractors re-engineer the job after they get it.

    On the HVACR trade this is a union shop area, SF Calif, 80% on anything good sized. they have some training programs.
    I see no shortage of disasters coming from many operating 'engineers'... but most of the constuction union guys you run into will not screw up totally, and if they do, it will be done neatly...and everyone shows up.

    When I was in Dallas Tx at Texas instruments engineering electronics fabs and running the projects I found a very high competency rate among virtually everyone that contracted work on the site... the last of that was in 1998.

    Florida sounds like an exception...but somehow, with negative tax incentives for working hard these days, and the baby boomers starting to retire...I suspect this disaster will spread.

    If thats right, could I get a few guess on the spread rate, and a prognosis on what will result.

    I am interested that with service so bad in florida that some company doesn't just do it right at a much higher rate. Offer fast service and 100% warranties or whatever.

    Why is that strategy not being tried... or why is the tactic failing in florida? Are the strip malls and hookers all broke or something?

    Is it a third world demographic taking the whole place down? If that the case, the problem will spread fast as illegals start filling spots vacated by those retiring.

    A person will have to structure for that unless he wants to compete at the 15 dollar an hour level.

    Check with me.

    Florida diffinately needs talent, but not the criticism.
    Having spoken to a major flight school a few years ago that wanted me to teach avaition to bright young faces, I can tell you this:

    Florida needs to offer some wages that are above the 1975 level. You want talent? Pay for it.

    The following opinion may not be totally accurate (although I think it is), so with that in mind, keep an open mind.
    Want to relocate to the land of sunshine. A better description would be, the land of dumb-shines. This is the land of hillbillies, stupidity, and just plain ignorance.
    Want to grab a service job? No problem. Can you say everyone of your co-worker's is a lazy mutha-f----r. The native language down her is NASCAR. The highest educational credential down here seems to be a G.E.D. Sure, you can have a job. How about getting payed in peanuts? They learned that from Georgia, home of Jimmy Carter (another loser), who farmed peanuts across the border. Just wait until they present you with your service van. Never mind that it's all f----, up and dirty with leftover bull**** from the most recent inbred that they had on the payroll. This is Florida, please smile. Oh, and yes, we don't know anything about laptops and software. We only deal in lap dances and "hard-on's". Can you say BILLY BOB? We specialize in getting contracts from pizza parlors run by greasy mafia types who came down her from New Jersey or bull**** malls that cater to Britney Spears types. That's why we advertise for "industrial technicians". You have to be "industrial", to put up with this nonsense. Oh never mind, too much negative vibes. This is Florida. Enjoy the pollen burning your eyes out. Enjoy the West Nile Virus. Enjoy the long list of criminals on the Sheriff's website (coming to a neighborhood near you).
    But hey, why forfeit making anywhere from $2.00 bucks an hour (for a basic slave) up to $20.00 an hour for a full fledged Master Ass Kisser (leftover from the Civil War).
    Don't you just love it BOSS? Freedom of speech in full bloom. Well, maybe. Depends on you.
    Anyway, drop me a note on this website if YOU WANT THE TRUTH.
    sounds like somebody has a broken compass and it told the msouth was north lmao

    i am sure glad you didn't get impatient and trun left on I-40 and head into here

    there is enough already lol

    guess freedom of speech is a two way street
    If Guns Kill People, Do Pencils Misspell Words?

    Before we work on artificial intelligence why don't we do something about natural stupidity?
