I work now at a welding/fabrication shop.There are younger guys here who are welders.Some have been in legal difficulties,Maybe lost their drivers license for DWI or something of that nature.But these kids surprise me at how they have learned their trades so well.One kid is about twenty.He will work a ten hour day with hardly a break.His welds and fabrications are not only top rate but look like art.He is also a good carpenter.Another young guy is a great welder too and especially pipe welding.But the first one I mentioned knew I wanted a bar b que pit.He spent a long day sandblasting and spray painting plus welding walkways on mudtanks.But he had thirty minutes for lunch.He built me a real nice pit in thirty minutes before I noticed why he didnt come eat lunch.I think there is still a future for the USA when the younger guys will still take pride in their trades like this.Not only that but they will do hard work just like their fathers did.

Please send some of those talented young people down to north Georgia.The majority of the young folks around here will watch YOU work and they expect the government or their families to keep them up and pay their bills for them.

Yeah.I guess there are numerous deadbeats these days but few would last a week here.Those easy jobs are often financed by taxpayers ot large corporate monopoly..
