Jim,

Thank you for your honest opinion. Although I haven't any degree to speak of, I am training to be a vacuum tech, and I have a connection at Lawrenve Livermore that has offered me employment there. My game plan is to get some experience at LL, then try and transfer to Los Alomos in N.M., otherwise, I will investigate other fields to be sure. I know I wouldn't get far with my present job as the employee at an auto parts store. As far as the ratio of wages to cost of living, I KNOW it is better there than here. There are a great many people here that are in my position, grown adults living at home, or living in run-down apartments with too many roommates for too much money ($1200+/month). Heck, I know one guy that ended up working for Home Depot in N.M. for $11.85/hr and said he did quite nicely. He was just a hourly grunt, not a manager of any kind.
