Construction salaries are poor here because of immigrant labor.

Are you looking at moving to the Triangle area, or anywhere in NC?

I am not sure what you consider good pay, but I know people who do lay brick and make pretty decent salaries upto $18-20 /hr. I know they also have monthly bonuses based on work production for the previous months. These men can support their families. But we are in the Charlotte area. One company is McGee Bros in the Monroe/Mint Hill/Midland (areas outside of Charlotte) and they have concrete drivers, footing crews, and brick crews. There is another one also out of Mint Hill called Griffin Masonry. As for their are a lot of animal groomers around this area along with the local hospitals, I think you will do fine.

Construction salaries are poor here, as they are in many parts of the world because the demand for affordable work is greater than the demand for high quality work.
No-one could afford to have any construction done if it wasn't for the immigrants because there would be so few "Americans" (many of whom are immigrants or descendents of immigrants) willing to do the hard dirty work day in, day out that recent immigrants do.
How many posts have we seen on this forum asking for fences, landscaping etc... at affordable prices?
Certainly I have no leads to help your husband but whenever such a question arises the same people answer with the 'low wages because of immigrants' backwoods non-sense that it makes my blood boil!!!
Good luck with the move.
