That was a long time ago and I think it was about 16 months. It was also in the mid 70's when work was slow and the economy was bad. Something like we have today. My son was interviewed on a Wednesday and called out on Friday 8 years ago. It all depends. There are apprentices on the bench right now due to the economy. The work picture does not look that bad right now. Things should be picking up in the 2nd quarter. One job that we have will be manning up in the next couple of months. There is a new waste to energy plant getting ready along with work at the steel mill, 2 slots parlors, a new office complex etc. Hang in there. I got in the local 31 years ago, worked steady for the last 28 years. In 28 years I have missed less than 2 weeks due to lack of work.

No. I had time off like vacations, long term medical, and a 6 week stint because I had a major case of the ass. I have managed to stay busy. I also have worked with the same Project Manager for 20 years. Yes it was with 2 different companies but he keeps us busy.
