    I signed in and still didn't see it, I am guessing one needs to be a member of a group on linkedin to actually see it?

    I am a member of LINKEDIN and what it amounts to is they are sending out untrained people to do these jobs.

    Those who are just trying to get by on the cheap deserve what they get but some people are really hard up against things and desperately looking to save money.

    When I got out of high school in the '60's the help wanted section was 20 PAGES long, if you had any skills it took a day to find a decent job. Another bonus bought to you by NAFTA and similar trade "agreements".

    The key is to educate people so they know how to differentiate between wannabees and the people who know what they are doing.

    That's a tough one Bob.
    I still don't understand how I'm supposed to hire an HVAC guy. I have no clue how to figure out who's who other than talking to them on here.

    Good luck educating people to be able to differentiate between hacks and good guys. Price is almost moot IMO. Many good guys actually charge less than the hacks.
