On the Horizon

Posted February 3, 2021

On the horizon: 2021 does not look to be as busy as the prior Years (2015-2020).

We have had a very healthy 5 year run in which the Painter’s and Drywall Finisher’s work has been steadily with many over time opportunities.  Please be ready for the  slowdown that inevitably happens, which is part of the cycle of the Boom and Bust in our construction industry. During the “Great Recession” (2008-2014) many of our members suffered high unemployment and economic hardships. This is an opportunity for us to learn from the past and be prepared. How? Manage your vacation/holiday, and the overtime savings. Tuck it away and save it for the slow times that could be approaching. It’s now the beginning of the year and it’s a great time to reevaluate spending habits and create that nest egg.
