    Which state needs AC techs?

    I've been in the biz 8 years.
    I currently have a good job in los angeles but I have no confidence in my job security.
    in los angeles, hvac jobs are becoming a temp position, I expect to get cut without warning one day.

    I was thinking about leaving the trade but everything else sounds worse.

    houses out here are freaking 500k

    I think i'm going to try another state

    Southeast. cost of living is cheap most places, weather's nice. The best thing is everything doesn't cause cancer and birth defects like in California.

    Texas, many unfilled jobs in the commercial area. Problem is the industry can not find qualified personnel.

    Texas? Surely not in Far West Texas!

    Jobs are plenty here in NY but having criminal record makes one ineligible for most, background checks are getting deeper and deeper.

    thanks for remembering.
    I have an expunged charge.
    areas that are rational be good for me, now that the country is getting out of hand with background checking and everything else.
    New York is not my cup of tea
