For the last 3-4 months we have been on hiring freeze because we dont have much work going on but in september it will be balls to the walls. Working for the shipyard has its ups and downs but its a good job. The shop I work for (shop 71) is hiring 84 people by the end of the year.

starting at $14.79 then $17.39 after 6months and then $19.93 after your year is up. I dont know many jobs that will pay that with this economy and no prior experience.
