    I must say its well paid for entry level work. I feel like its definitely something to consider getting into. After all this local gig I have is not going anywhere and doesn't pay no where near as good.

    I hear you on local pay it sucks , around $24-27 a hr and i’ve seen it as low as $21 a hr in the Gta . I’ve been thinking of working for a township or getting into heavy equipment my self .

    Yeah I hear you. I think I read in a earlier post that you were in Ontario. I'm in BC the lower mainland to be precise and both are getting close to being unaffordable. Times like this one thinks to go back to school and learn something better paying or move into specialsed truck driving!

    BC was rediculous even a decade ago.

    These guys have a big sign out front claiming $42 hr for AZ drivers.

    I can't vouch for them, just passing along what I saw.

    Looks like his employees tried going union but the owner stopped it according to the story i’ve found . I meant to stop by and get their info on my way back from barrie but drive past them by mistake
