Hoping you all have a fabulous day I am heading down to the Sault this morning to pick up my beautiful daughter from College so I know its going to be a great day for myself! All has been well here in Wawa most of our roads have been fixed but the Northern Lights Motel and the 2 houses that were damaged are not fixed and hopefully the insurance and government steps in to help them. We received a check from the United Association of Plumbers and Steamfitters to help with costs associated with the disaster.
Have an amazing day!!!

One of my favourite stories about four-letter words involves the Right Honourable John Diefenbaker, many of whose political positions I didn’t appreciate, but whose basic values I profoundly respected. Shortly after he retired from the political scene, he was asked in an interview what he thought of the younger generation. “Oh, it’s not all that different from any other such generation,” he replied.” I have noticed, however, that they like to use a lot of four-letter words; except for one that they don’t like very much. It’s spelt W-O-R-K.”

Big Bad Bob that seems to be quite a problem these days. Not enough young people going into the trades because they can't sit at a desk and keep their hands clean. Then there is the sad state of our welfare system. Those in true need don't get enough and then there are all the rest that need to have their a***s kicked out to WORK. We are bringing in workers from all over the world for jobs and we have third generation welfare cases still sitting and collecting.
Brianne 12/6/2012 12:09:36 PM Report

I think the problem with the trades is, there are no more apprenticeships being handed out. The trades, years ago was inundated with people, and a lot of workers had to get "other jobs" as there wasn't any available for their trade.

Now you have to go to "school" to learn the trades. Some people can't learn in school and need to do the job hands on and learn that way.

My son wants to learn the construction trade, but sees no point in taking a 2 or 4 year course, when he can learn on the job training easier and faster and more accomplished. Two to fours years of going to school and no income is not feasible these days...... hence the lack of trades persons available. It's not like it was 30 years ago where a parent could support a child going through school to learn a trade.

Wicket 12/6/2012 12:36:51 PM Report

Brianne... a person has to get hired into a company that provides the trade that s/he is interested in, then the company sponsors the employee as an apprentice to attend 3 sessions of 'trade school' at eight weeks each. They have to work a pre-requisite number of hours between each session. While attending school (Sault College being one of the most popular and highest attendance and number of trades offered in Ontario) they receive EI benefits. Electrial trade attend school for 10 weeks in the 2nd and 3rd sessions, the rest do eight.
Nov/Dec session at Sault College has over 30 apprentices just in the plumbing trade alone - lots from Thunder Bay area and more coming for Jan/Feb from that area.
T-rat 12/6/2012 12:46:59 PM Report

old-cat33: my apologies to the ecofan company. I may have been premature in my judgement. Visit them at: www.caframo.com They have a FAQ section and apparently you can purchase a new blade or a replacement motor kit with detailed installation instructions. Or you can call them at 1-800-567-3556 x227. Since they're a sponsor of the Wiarton Willie festival they must be in the Owen Sound area. Let us know if you have any success.
Brianne 12/6/2012 12:50:16 PM Report

that's the problem Wicket, trying to find a company in town that supports the apprenticeships. AS you said, these young people are coming from out of town to take those courses.
Wicket 12/6/2012 2:05:46 PM Report

Not so Brianne, there are lots of Soo people in the programs. In trhew past two years, Electricians for one, make up 80% - 90% of the local enrollment, making it difficult for out of towners to complete their apprenticeships after they have the pre-requisite number of hours in. It depends on the trade, auto mechnics, heavy equipment, truck and diesel have mostly out-of-towers because there are way too many local people already qualified and some not working. The Soo is notorious for paying the lowest wages in these trades. There is not a lot of work in the Soo left for trades people, a couple of years ago would have been the best time to get into it as we were in a building boom that is now finished. Essar Steel has not done their own trades program since the 1980s when it was still ASC. However, that may be changing in the future. Heard that a lot of the trades people that retired in July got hired back on full time in the fall because they could not find qualified people to fill the positions.

House/building construction
Wicket 12/6/2012 2:57:13 PM Report

house/building construction - you have to pay your dues and get hired as a 'flunkie' gopher kinda person, prove your interest in learning. Knock on every construction company door and keep going back until someone will give you an opportunity. As I said, construction is on a very fast downhill slide in the Soo, only big project is the new high school and the housing sector is going to die out very fast. Too many houses built over the last couple of years of expensive building projects which are now finished. Hopefully, people will not see foreclosures for over-spending.
mallet 12/6/2012 3:10:44 PM Report

Brianne...

Much as I would like to agree with you, unfortunately you need the schooling to learn the theory. The theory is necessary to learn how to do the angles and load points etc. It is not a case today of being able to nail a couple of pieces of wood together, there are basic house building codes that need to be learned, which you cannot do without the schooling, and the exam for the trade ticket. I had to go to Sault college to upgrade my trade ticket, which I had held for quite a while when Algoma Steel decided to amalgamate the trades of Millwright/welder/pipefitter. There is one other thing one must take into consideration, and that is the availability of work in this area compared to another, like out west. Your boy may not want to leave the area but sometimes you must to make a living, even if you do not want him to...

I know Mallet, but the schooling can go along with the appenticeship.

I dont' know how people do it, go to school for 2-4 years.........live........pay off student loans........ then find work, ugh

Maybe because i'm getting older, that i find that exhausting.

And, some people just like to stay "home" where their roots are ingrained. He's thought about going out west and had an opportunity to work in Saskatchewan on a 10 year contract........ be he stubborn, not sure...he wants to stay here in the soo. Which in both his eyes and mine, there should be opportunity to succeed in your home town.

I run into a lot of young people from my line of work especially during this time of year or summer time and they all tell me that they are home for a visit 25- 35 yr olds. Lots all ply their trade out of town because their is just no work for them here. And that's from law enforcement,fire protection,carpenters and the list goes on. These young people moved to southern Ontario to State side.
When I was younger I would work the shut downs in the plant any construction work as far as that matters that's where the money was back then.But those days are gone.

There is work all over but you have to move to get it,like it or not.You can always come home for the holidays.And as a PS,,,THE cost of living isn't that much greater down here and at least you can afford it..Should have moved back down here years ago,just too stubborn to.

right wing 12/6/2012 3:45:26 PM Report

Brianne

First of all "house/building" construction do not have apprenticeships per say.
Most contractors sub out the work, i.e. framing, plumbing, electrical, heating, etc.
Some contractors will have some general laborers on staff and perhaps a licensed carpenter or two.
Getting on as general labor is good as it gets you exposed to the other trades.
As already stated on here persistence can pay off or relocating.
Who cares where you are, just get the trade ticket...then you can go where you want.
What other vocation can you go to school, work, get paid and at the end, no big debt and receive a ticket that will give you work for life.
The biggest problem with the trades (it is in the works to correct it) is the licensed tradesman to apprenticeship ratio.
As an example if you have two apprentices you need one licensed tradesman, four then two and so on.
This is very costly for small shops and is why they will not hire as many apprentices.
Another way into the trades is a related education.
The two year or three year electronic technician or engineering course is an excellent way to make it attractive for an electrical firm to hire you.

You are incorrect on the residential housing market in the Sault.

Take a ride near the new hospital and check out the subdivision going in...and that is just one going up.

Have him put out a resume to every contractor/construction company in the yellow pages.
Hand delivered not mailed.
Two weeks later, return for an update, in person not on the phone.
Keep repeating.
Do some research on any that look promising, find out who the owner is, general manager, what type of work they do...anything he can.
If he suddenly finds himself in front of a decision maker he can talk like he knows what they do and why he would be a good contribution to their business.
Eventually they will tell him to stop coming in or they will hire him because he is a pain in the ass.

Wicket 12/6/2012 4:07:19 PM Report

I realize that house construction is still on-going in the Soo. My concern is that people are already laid off in the construction industry, without going out of town, they are not going to be able to get work locally. Too many $400,000 plus houses have been built, young families, huge monthly payments and if one person is laid off, there goes the toys/house/cars.... happened in the 80s and 90s in the Soo already.
When contractors are building $380,000 plus condos (previously called row housing) and targetting seniors buyers, there is something not quite right...
right wing 12/6/2012 4:28:13 PM Report

Wicket

The condo style may be targeting seniors (even those are in demand) but not the single family homes.
Many retirees have lots of $$$$ and cannot find what they want.
Trust me, the majority of those purchasing the single family homes can afford the mortgage on just one income, not both...and that is the way to do it.
The post war baby boom retirees are just getting under way and it is going to get bigger.

Brianne...

I am very well aware of the difficulties, however as in life there are things what one must do if you want to work.. Fifty odd years ago when I was apprenticed there was competition, but most people wanted their offspring to go on to higher education, I wanted to see the wheels go round, and got apprenticed. However I have had to move around a bit, I have worked up in the Artic, Mines in the bush, North Africa and Sudbury, while my wife has stayed home, here in the Soo and now retired out to the cottage.. Has it been hard, sure at times, but we both think it has been worth it...

Wicket the writing was on the wall mid 70's which was the main reason I spent 9 years in The Middle East. Instead of scaping by here I benefitted from the downturn by getting as high as 21% on T-bills through the early 80's. That said I'm not sure who is buying all these large homes but Saldan, Palmer, Ficmar etc all seem to be reading the market correctly. The folks I work for are building new hotels (4) and there is another one scheduled for the Sault this Spring.

Right wing and Grump, sure hope you are right on the construction of new homes and buyers. I am a very positive, optimistic person but somehow have some doubts in this regard. I know of quite a few people who never thought they would own a house and now do because of the ladder that happens when someone moves up into a more expensive house. There are actually apartments available now because of this.

Wicket rw is correct there are two ways to look at money. I had two older brother-in-laws both with money. One held that you paid cash and got the best price you could. The other believed that you got the lowest down payment and the longest terms possible on big ticket items. He said that say a payment of 1000.00 might be hard at the time but wouldn't mean much 20 years down the line and both big ticket items would appreciate greatly in that time. I suppose both were right but I believe that a combination of both systems works best for most folks.

I don't say many prayers, however to anyone sick, I always have positive thoughts.

You mentioned a couple books."Die Broke" and Spend 'Til the End".Ha,someone once said that the last check you write should be to the undertaker and if you play it just right that one should bounce.I can see some sense in that philosophy but I guess the trouble with that would be trying to time it.

Ole-cat33:

I spoke to the folks at Caframo. They can send you a motor replacement kit for less than $25, shipping included, but they have to verify the model #. Hold your fan on its ide and look for a white sticker under the head piece and you should find a serial number like 5530-030 for instance. This is an 800 model and replacement motors are available. Home Hardware stores also stock replacement motors. BUT if the white plastic ring behind the motor (thermal electric module) is cracked, the thing is toast. In that regard, ship it to the company and they will send you a rebuilt model for about $80.

Good Evening Folks

All the best to Skipper Dave..

Any time is a bad time to be sick but somehow being sick this time of year just seems wrong. There should be no worry or sadness over health this time of year.

Speaking of sadness ... I took the plunge today and retired my 1999 sunfire.. :( and bought a sweet 2009 vehicle... Merry Christmas to me :)... therefore I will NOT be paying for The Blue Room Surprise Christmas Dinner with door prize of trip for 4 blue room buddies 4 days 4 nights all inclusive stay at Portlock .. Sorry.. I had it all planned then said F*** it I need a new car.. but Merry Christmas :)

Merry car nanag... Merry Christmas.

Well, Christmas is always Merrier with a new car.

Well with anything new, anyways.

Drive safe and if you drive, don't drink... you may spill the drink all over the place.

The only drink I might be spilling would be a good hot cup o tea.. and that might burn up some "personal" territory...so no drinking and driving for this chicky
