Been looking for a job that I can do for a while and haven't gotten lucky

It's 90 degrees on average during summer. But winter and spring are beautiful. And the sunsets are fantastic, and southern Florida is extremely diverse. The cost of living fluctuates, right now gas is 3.49 a gallon in my area. And we have a ton of transportation jobs.
 
But you hey have automatics as well .
They're illegal in Australia - safety regulations. All our trailers have one more axle too - 22 wheelers.

I don't think I'm that good at backing up with a huge truck.
I got taught the trick to that - only use one mirror. Look in both mirrors before you start, and check the second mirror occasionally, but if you try to use both mirrors while actually reversing you'll end up all over the place.
 
@Outdated
Do you mean Automatics are illegal in Australia or stick? Yeah I have noticed the more axels . That actually makes more sense . They should do the same here

Automatics. One of the major truck routes in to Adelaide makes a good argument for why - coming from Melbourne you go through a very long tunnel with a very steep downhill gradient, then just as you come out of the tunnel you come to this intersection:

Ok thanks for the clarification, it
Makes senses
 
Ok thanks for the clarification,
The truck in that accident above was a manual, but these days a lot of drivers aren't taught to use gears to control speed. I'm sure it's changed now but when I was growing up there was no such thing as an automatic license in South Australia, if you couldn't drive a manual then you weren't allowed to drive.

Visitors from interstate with automatic only licenses also discovered that if they had an accident here then they were 100% liable and culpable as technically they were driving without a license.

I understand that . I learned to drive car with stick shift . Which kind of made learning to drive truck shifting harder because there is no synchronizer transmission in a truck So it’s like I had to relearn shifting again when in trucking school .to take a test here in the states one must double clutch which really wears you out when you have 10 or 13 gears .

Once I passed my test and started driving for a company I learned to float gears ,it saved my knees on clutching. I only double clutch when pulling really heavy loads up mountains and big hills.

factory job I posted a few interesting opportunities here @elgat0verde , and two of them are FT (chocolate overnight shift and FabScrap)

If you're open to have a video chat with me, I'm happy to refer you to where I work and other organizations you can connect with for jobs. You will have good chances to be able to get a decent job willing to move, but moreso if you're willing to connect/network with others. This is important because there is always the possibility you could end up working with someone like myself.
 
Europe would be nice, I agree

Or Canada

Was there for 4 months when I was in college and loved it so much!
Great we really could use people up here, talked to my former boss this morning. Major issues finding hourly help. Very well paid most positions are semi-skilled, ideal for people like us shift work. expect to work alone. May be with one other. coil coating line small crew can run the whole line. due to union most skilled position hardest to fill also most challenging.

What about moving?

Housing? all that? Oh and a Visa
 
That's where you have to do your homework my parents immigrated here in the 1950'slack of skilled labour is the biggest issue as us baby Boomers retire. housing is an issue as home prices went through the roof in the last few years. As far as I know they are using a point system. Like all issues formulate a plan work the plan my son has a relationship with a recent immigrant she is a citizen now. from Albania, they just gave me a granddaughter
My other son needed hourly help hired a married couple. Russian and Ukraine. Either way immigrants are welcomed here if you could find members of your community already here, they could help. My new daughter in law is trying to get her brother here works in Florida. the key is finding the existing diaspora. they know the ropes.

I will look into it

I will look for other US people because I don't have a good relationship with people from my own culture (Mexican).

I feel like it's all part of my own trauma being bullied and abused and misunderstood.

Thank you for the pointers
 
I'm not that familiar with the Mexican community up here, it's probably pretty small my new daughter- in- laws community is pretty small. they have few places in Toronto bars restaurants where they hang out share culture language. You need to find these somehow contact someone I'll see. If I can find them from my end. both sons' fiance and the others girlfriend speak multiple languages, along with my brother's wife. my son visits his brother the two women speak French visits his brother women speak Italian just found out a few weeks ago she learned German in school. you would not believe how multi-cultural Toronto is. plus, my brothers' son's kids speak Chinese to their mother. My brother sent an email to my son not to teach my granddaughter English but rather her mother's native language. Another brother goes to Cuba a lot learning to speak Spanish.

Toronto seems nice

It'd be nice to use my old Tim Hortons card once more to get me some of them donut holes

Thank you but I'd prefer not to be in the Mexican community.
 
How about finding a Spanish speaking community.
I'll look into it, people from other spanish speaking countries seem to treat me a bit better than my own people.

Sorry, I am not racist

I am Mexican, born and raised

But I've felt so much bullying and abuse from my own community that I've grown tired of trying to be understood. There is no support for people with any mental health issue in this country and people look at us like animals in a circus.

I am not racist just cautions and hurt, I feel like everyone here is the same which is a very tunnel vision thing to say but everyone I've met here has hurt me or used me or manipulated me one way or another.
 
I learned a while ago not to read between lines, interesting story wife and i befriended what looked on the surface like an east Indian couple. Then one day they moved. him and I are both into the paint application industry. when we got invited to their new home, I asked why they left Bampton his response stunned me they hated Indian culture and food and Brampton had become too Indian for them His name is also Ron his response was Ron I'm not Indian I'm from Guinea completely different culture.

Thank you for that, thank you for understanding
 
Ontario is a huge province. Most of the immigrant community tends to stay in enclaves sticking with each other.
Toronto currently has very close to 50% immigrant's largest city on the great lakes.
 
years ago, I worked at my first job there was a group of employees that ate together found out that they were Spanish however one guy looked like he belonged but kept away. so out of curiosity I asked him why the answer was they speak Spanish, I'm Portuguese.
