My hours got seriously cut back, my boss is running out of money.

I am a Jack of all trades. I do light carpentry, electrical work, some plumbing, I do excellent sheet rock patches, finish carpentry, cabinet building, flooring repairs, dry rot repairs, roofing, just about anything. I worked for a general contractor who specialized in Kitchen and Bathroom remodels for over 3 years. Prior to that, I worked in management for new construction, and was a Handyman on the side. I also am a mobile mechanic. I am not officially licensed, insured, or bonded in any trade which I have experience in. I am just another guy caught in the wrong trade when the recession hit. I live in the Placerville area, about 45 minutes east of Sacramento, I would be willing to travel to the outskirts of Sacramento, and about an hour radius of my home in any direction. My rates are flexible, I am fair with what I charge. I have not had to sell off my tools yet, so as of now, I still have my own tools.

My name is Tony, I can be reached at (916) 275-6764. This is my cell phone, I can be reached just about anytime during the day.
I hope you find something soon Tony. I will ask my mom, who lives in Sac, if she knows of anyone looking for your skill set.

Glad I saw this.
I'm looking for a job to fund my habits (powerstroke performance and a 79 yota heap)
and to move to the sacramento area while I go to school. I'm good in offices, customer service, etc, but my highlight is the five years of welding. I can do Arc, MIG, Oxyacetylene, flux core, plasma cutting, and I've got a few hours of TIG. (just enough to be dangerous)
I'd like to get a job in welding cause it pays better than any of the other crap I know.
I Can work night shifts as well. anyone know of companies hiring?
thanks,
Dan
