What caused you to move there from Vegas?
Ironwork has dried up in vegas (and the construction industry in general) had some good years they're but those days are done and not coming back anytime soon for vegas.

I know what you mean. My father in law was ready to move out there for a few years to do all of the electrical in a new casino and the convention center expansion. They pulled the plug on the casino and cut the price of the expansion to a point were he told them to get lost.

Same here....moved here to Michigan from Vegas ( Henderson actualy ) a couple years ago. I was in the construction inspection biz. It was great until the housing market fell out...then it all just stopped.

I some times wish i was back home in the U.P.

Now that City Center is complete there's nothing going on.... It's sad to see unfinished buildings, and cranes that haven't moved for months....

How's the job market in MI?

That would be the answer.

The only thing moving here is for sale or going south

Hey Jay.... I'm on the automated people mover (tram) project at CC. The one from Bellagio to Monte Carlo. We're closing the job out right now, and have nothing else coming up...

moved out here in 1991 from upper MI and work was everywhere... up till about 2 years ago things started to taper off.

Hopefully these unfinished projects come back on line soon... Until then who knows...

We just have to keep our heads up!
