Another day at work

Another hard day at work for me. One of our small boxes of parts spilled over from a chair dumping it into a different box of small parts. Needless to say about an hour later I had them back sorted in their own boxes and  I continued on again with my part of the assembly process.

Entertainment center

My husband's building a new entertainment center for our living room. This time with a little bit of luck it will look like cherry to match our coffee table. It's real hard to get the stain perfect and then when you get the stain perfect it has to be clear coated many times while sanding in between coats.

Cheap employers

It's sure tough out there looking for a skilled trades men's job. The companies out there make a list out of what skills they want you to have and post it online. After talking to a few of the employers my husband couldn't believe how low the hourly rate is for what they want you to do. Some of these experiences collectively are from a lifetime on the job. The employer went on and on about what they wanted and were willing to pay 12 dollars an hour for a job that should start at 19 dollars an hour. The prevailing rate for this job in that area is 20 dollars an hour.
