Re: God damn customs and border patrol at the California state line

I like Glen, Colusa, and Tehama counties in the north sacramento valley. Very peaceful, hope to move there in about 3 years if I can find a year-round shop job. Only about 1 1/2 hours from the Sacramento metro sprawl. I am used to living on a shoestring budget.

Re: God damn customs and border patrol at the California state line

There is a lot of shop work in Woodland. Shoot up I5 and you could live in Colusa or Yolo counties with a half hour commute. Those shops in Woodland are $15/hr kinda jobs though. Bernard Pipeline has a laydown/prefab yard in Woodland. You have to be union though. I have stopped in there a few times and they won't even talk to you if you aren't union. They are pretty rude about it too.

Re: God damn customs and border patrol at the California state line

I applied at a couple places in woodland. Got on a 30day waiting list at Gayle. They would give me a job if I agreed to transfer to their soon to open plant in idaho. I have a kid and can't uproot that easy until she finishes high school.
A couple places in woodland took my application and forwarded it to a temp agency. The temp agencies gave a range of pay for the job of $12-$17 an hour. Guess what the starting pay was? If work is stable I can survive on $16-$17 an hour. Long term I can't survive on $12 an hour.
