    how's the job Market in minny???

    If this is where you can post your wants, then i want to move to minnesota!
    I want a decent job
    anywhere in minnesota.
    I live in Indiana and work in construction.
    I mostly do plumbing but also do hardwood and laminate flooring.
    Housing industry really sucks right now and work is slow. I have been trying to get into a steel working or railroad type job............we will see how that goes.







    So are any of you in a position to import a hardworking Hoosier??

    (cant hurt to ask eh ;D)




    I must escape these hillbilly bear fans!
    I put a sig on here before, but it expired?
    Now i have tried again but seem to be retarded.......oh well,

    Floop the bears!

    Re: how's the job Market in minny???

    Construction is slow here too. My brother is a plumber and has been going to Florida to work over the last 2 years because there is nothing available here(he's union and there are 600 guys ahead of him for any positions here. My dad is also a plumber here and has had his hours cut below 40 for the first time in 25 years, and his company has laid off most of it's employees. Also construction slows way down in the winter in Minnesota.
    Good luck.

    i agree.

    The plumbing jobs have really taken a hit. my youngest brother is a union Plumber and he is working in the south metro now but has been on and off in the past few years.

    The residential flooring market has taken a hit as has the Cabinetry sector, which I am in. Everything is in remodeling now, not much new getting built.

    Yeah, it stinks everywhere.

    I also have been on again--off again for most of this year.
    I stopped doing the traveling thing........wife hates it.

    Most of us capenter/plumber types are gonna have to figure out a new trade.

    If you do come to MN let me know. I am a Advisor at a college here and can talk to you more about both of those types of fields more in depth.
    I can't begin to tell you teh amount of students I see that were working in the construcion field looking to get out.
    Just the brief look at your background I have a couple of things for you to possibly look at. Let me know. I will do what I can, either at the school I work for or one of teh other State schools.

    You could always come to Kentucky. It's hard to find competent plumbers here. Cost of living is cheap, too. And even though the housing market is way down, someone with a license who can open his own business doing repair work can do well.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    I have thought about that here as well......a lot of competition though.
    If i am going to talk my wife into moving out of state.........it'll be Minnesota.


    Thanks for the reply ;D
