I talked to some painters late one night at the MGM. They were painting some railings on/near the casino floor.
Looked like a pretty good gig to me.

As far as hourly jobs go , it can't be beat hands down . It so laid back it will almost ruin even the best of production painters /paperhanger .My shift is 4am to noon . I don't plan on leaving any time soon .
But I do see economy picking up again for sure and I like money ...
