I am a union carpenter in St.Louis. I work union or non union as it does not matter to me as long as I am working. But I have not had a job in over a year. :Mad: I have built two decks on the side but it was not worth it as I only ended up making 5 bucks an hour on it. I am on my extension and don't see any thing changing by the time it runs out. Anyone have any words of wisdom for this struggling young man? :sad: How many of you are unemployed or underemployed?
