does the pay really suck that bad or is it the heat that makes people talk bad about the state? I lived down there for 14 years making ok money at agovernment contractor producing equipment for military use.I knew there were days working in that sun is killer.it was good for me because being a stocky man ilost 75 pounds within 5 months time.maybe the ones who cry about the heat,should get out of the kitchen !!!
