A journeyman electrician can pull his own permits I think. Put an ad on Craigslist or kijiji and be the lowest bidder.
Where I live we are currently in the deepest recession in over 30 years and lots of people crying the blues because there are no jobs. Try and hire a contractor right now? I thought there would be quality people lined up. The work ethic of these clowns is a joke.
I stick to what I said before The guy was out of a job because he wanted to be. The same goes with the video . The "brother " that lost his cooking job lost the job because he wanted to.
