    Sounds like you guys need to talk with Dash, he seems to have a good handle on whats happening in Fl. He knows a lot of people down there also. I know he would try and help you out.

    Tell what it is your looking for,wages ,benefits,on-call rotation,etc.

    Florida is not the highest in wages,competion is fierce,buiders etc. ,constantly shopping price and so on.

    I think most companies are paying what they can afford,or at least what they think they can,meaning their prices need to go up,including our company.Tough decisions,are often postponed.

    On the other side,a lot of people don't work 8 for 8,and production suffers.

    Hmm

    Well maybe I'm the exception, I do almost work 8 to 8,I have to, to keep up with what I'm used to having up north ie.phone,cable tv,internet,electric & water oh and a rental property to live in, mind you 3 bedroom at that. That's it,no other frills I can't afford them,I have 3 kids all under 15 who are growing and do eat,contrary to what my company thinks is a good wage there paying me.
