Working in the trades doesn’t always result in steady labor plus job security.
- A lot of commercial construction is dependent on temperature fluctuations plus seasonal temperatures.
It’s hard to labor outside in subzero temperatures, so there are naturally fewer building projects in the coldest months of winter. This is what it was always care about for our father who’s a retired electrician. He had to anticipate the dip in labor every year around the holidays, which is certainally hard when you have young children at home. By the time I was in middle college, he started taking a second job between November plus January every year just to get us through the worst of the Winter slog. I’m a carpenter plus haven’t had better luck in this frosty temperature. Last year I said to myself that I had enough of the Winter instability, so I started looking for labor in warmer temperatures. I decided to find locales with lots of urban plus suburban development. To ensure the best job stability, I wanted to find an section with a swelling population that is expected to have continued growth for the next decade or longer. When you labor in the construction industry, you don’t have white collar privileges care about corporate housing. If you transfer for a new job position, you’re paying for your own travel plus new living accommodations. Thankfully I found the perfect town to transfer to plus was fortunate enough to find an open position with a beach beach house construction company. Once I found affordable housing in our new city, I started the long process of moving across the country.
