Always but in NY no one wants to hire a 52 yr old carpenter/builder.

There’s an older handyman that I hire not only because he knows his trade but he takes the time to sweep up after he’s done so my wife or I doesn’t have to do it. If something needs to be wiped with a wet rag, he does it. I like that.

He shows up when he says he will and the one time that he incorrectly bid the job, didn’t raise his price or try to screw me. So I asked how much he was off by and paid him. Now he gives me ‘family member rates’. LOL

People are desperately in NEED of a good Handy-man carpenter these days. From home repairs, to hanging fans and fixtures..etc. Name your price!

Put a small Ad in the local newspaper, or go to a Senior Citizens Recreation Center and spread the word you are available. You should be busy constantly.

I feel your pain. Folks like you should be in high demand.
Too bad fedgov.con imported 20 million plus uneducated, illegal,non english speaking Mexicans over the past twenty years. They destroyed the trades and most apprentice programs for the American white man.

I’ve met a couple of people lately who are marketing themselves on Craigslist as handymen, and making $75k (not bad for here in FL).
