just got asked if i'd consider working in mexico
6am here & an ex-coworker of mine called me up & said they need 4 guys to go to some plant near mexico city & work a 55 day shutdown on some sort of furnace. i guess they usually get guys from windsor ontario but my ex coworker got the boss' son into our ironworker union so he is going to take a few from edmonton because his son works here. i don't know him but i hope i get to go. i will get paid the same as i do here but with living allowance even though i am staying in a work camp. working 12 hour days so it won't be a party. it will be huge money though. it don't start til sept 1 2013 so nothing is written in stone but it was a good phone call to get. i would stay in mexico for a few weeks after. i hope to hear more & i'm not getting all excited because in my line of work nothing is guarenteed. the good thing is it's january & they are already looking at manpower....
