    It's interesting. I went to school at Da Tech in Houghton, and would like to get back to the U.P.

    Where would you like to wind up? Somewhere tropical?

    Is it really that bad? why are the techs putting up with that? I think that it would be worth it liveing where it is warm all of the time.

    The only thing I can think is not warm enough to have alot of work. But can stay that long running out of money. Good luck

    Don't listen to the nasayers,they are always there. If you know your trade,and you are diversified in your trade,and if you can use your basic knowledge of A/C and apply it to other types of equipment,you can make a national average wage any where in the nation.Don't be afraid.What doesn't kill you will make you stronger. What you don't know, be willing to learn and you will be a valuable asset to any company.There are other threads from individuals in Florida listing wages.If its so bad as the nasayers say the who do you think is doing all the work here?

    I agree ,Florida wages are much higher than a few years ago ,and many companies can provide yearround work,no lay ofss,and good benefits.

    Email me your resume ,dave at the url of the "little red house" below.
