    Anyone around Eastern CT? I was thinking of stopping by and putting a week in. It's all monkey work, just putting together aluminum racks that the solar panels sit on. They need something like 50 people. There is also another solar farm being finished just 25 miles south in Baltic (Sprague), same deal as far as pay and hours. The $ really roll in with the time and 1/2.
    Also if you have a place to crash, or would be down to share a campsite, holler at me.

    Hey is this still going on? I may fly back east to Providence on the 27th. I'm currently in the woods with no service but may call. Definitely could share a camp site if the pay is as decent as it sounds. Likely my girl would join as well.
    Under the table? Or what?

    wanted to update- the one i linked to is almost finished, there's another giant solar farm being built in Pomfret, CT that'll be rolling til Xmas. I'm driving a bobcat there, doing really simple shit, for 20$ an hour. Laborer pay is 16. There is 15-20 hours OT available/week. I have to roll out pretty soon to work my full-time job, but there is mad work out here. There is pretty much everything you could ever need within bicycle-riding distance of the jobsite.
    If anyone wants to work up here https://newlondon.craigslist.org/lab/d/construction-laborers/6351268606.html
    or pm me for recruiter's email

    I just started doing something like this, but up in Mass. It's a pretty good deal!
    Only drawback has been you need to do a 10-hour unpaid computer class on OSHA regulations, but the pay is good enough that it balances out in like a day. 10+ hour shifts w/ chill people and paid lunchtime.

    Oh I guess there was that thing where I strained my back so bad that all my muscles locked into a solid block and my guts wouldn't work for a couple days. See previous status on that lol. But it's better now it's really just about figuring out leverage.
