I moved to Ft Myers from Chicago right after Hurricane Charlie. I got in with the largest company down here, $15 an hour + OT right out of trade school. Lead installers that just came on are getting $25 /hr. Don't let some of these guys discourage you. They did the same thing to me when I asked the questions. It has it's ups and downs. Things get slow in service during Oct - Dec, but installs are backed up til March.
