I have a lengthy construction background, amongst other things. I understand Philly is heavy union and has shed a lot of construction jobs. Yet, my experience tells me when there is a lot of development (in various neighborhoods in South Philly) there has to be a need for carpentry, painting, etc. In New York I used to pack my tools in a bag and go site to site till someone hired me. What are people doing there in Philly? Craigslist seems pretty empty.
Thanks in advance.
