Default Job Question

I'm looking to relocate out of MI and am thinking about NC. The only jobs I've ever held were factory jobs. Is there factory work in NC?

yes

There various types of industries in this state from
metal fabrication, chemical production, furniture upholstry,
corrogated board production, Fiberglass production and
food & beverage production and packaging to name a few.

to get an idea of the various types check the NC job bank
The Employment Security Commission of North Carolina

This site below shows the various type of work you can look into and get idea amount of jobs in that field and pay scale.

It would only let me do by city so you can change the city to get idea of other cities around the state.

This is a right to work state so there is very few or no unions.

That's fine by me as I'm not a union type person anyway. Thanks for the info. I'm off to check them out now.

Generally speaking, pay is much lower in NC for factory work than in MI.

If you work in one of the bigger automotive companies you get paid good but the smaller shops generally start out around $8-$10 an hour. That's not enough to live on up here. What aabout clerical type work? Does that pay any better?
