MARCH 27, 2012 Why Aren’t Young People Considering Blue Collar Jobs?
It’s ironic that every manufacturer or contractor that I talk to have plenty of work to do, but a limited number of qualified people to do it. Mike Rowe recently pointed out that young folks can make up to 100K a year working in a factory according to a recent article on CNN Money.com. The same holds true for other tradesmen like plumbers, electricians and HVAC contractors. These folks can make 60-80K a year, and they can’t ship those jobs across the pond. These factory jobs aren’t low tech anymore, or are they in dingie old factories. Make it fun, exciting and cool!

| WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012
See original article at Are Checks with “Payment In Full” In Memo Field Legally Binding? Do They Effect Mechanics Lien Rights? Short Answer: Beware checks with “Payment in Full,” “Full and Final Settlement” or similar language written in the memo field or endorsement area.

WELD MY WORLD Safety Tips for Welding in Wet Conditions
| THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2012
It’s just bound to happen. At some point in the course of your welding practice, whether you’re a seasoned professional welder or a home-based project welder, you’re going to encounter wet conditions on a job site or during a project. As welding safety issues go, properly handling moisture and wet conditions is beyond important because most welding machines (everything but oxyacetylene gas welders) are driven by electricity – and electricity kills! one good strong jolt, your heart stops, and that’s all she wrote. And as everyone knows (or should know): water and electricity don’t mix. MORE >>
