I'm here to tell ya HVAC is 1. feast or famine ( 2 -3 weeks a year when its brutal cold you'll work 18+ hour days, then sit on your thumbs for 3-4 months and 2-3 weeks a year when its brutal hot working 18+ hour days then sit on your thumbs 3-4 months) and 2. is DEAD AS HELL! my business went under '05 or '06 when the new housing market crashed. I wasnt the only one. Nor has the market rebounded. It takes money to repair or replace equipment and most folks can barely feed their family much less repair/replace heating and cooling. Folks are getting space heaters and making due.
I am in school...or will be going back at in Jan. for Massage therapy....or something else in the health care field. Heres to hoping Osama care is killed dead by the SCOTUS or there wont be any jobs left in that field either.
