    Louisiana is a totally different place, you'll get fired for discussing that, they say, if you want to know, get a job and join the union. I'm refering to what the customer pays, it seems no one even looks at that, more about what they get.

    My business went down hill in 2006, gas went to $4 a gallon and I was stuck in contract work, it bancrupted me, by 2007, all of the guys working for me were looking for other jobs and I was too, by 2009, the company I was working for had cut everyone back to 36-39 hours a week. July of 2010, I decided to get my license and go back out on my own. I do as good or better than I did employed, becoming an employee again was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, after being my own boss for a decade, and coming from a management position with another business.

    In Las Vegas the one thing that you can bet on take it to the bank is 100° + Heat for at least 60 days straight. When I got laid off in 2009 Reno was dead but there was lots of work in Vegas. I just happened to Google search and find a school district job here in the Seattle area. I got lucky

    I think that's very true. Businesses have to drum up enough work to keep employees working. That's one thing in ATL I don't like. Spring/Summer comes and its mayhem. Then everything dies down unless the shop keeps the tempo up and creates enough work in the off-season for their full time employees.
