My husband is a union carpenter and we are wondering what the construction industry is like in New Orleans. He called the NO union office and they said that they're a lot of jobs, but we want to make sure before we make the move. We love Los Angeles but there are NO construction jobs here and my husband needs to work NOW. We have a 3-month-old baby so we can't take too many risks but things are getting scary here money- and job-wise. I work from home so I'm good. Thanks in advance.

I was a LA carpenter many moons ago and thought that if I needed a job, this would be the place when I moved here last July. I don't know the scale, but there is remodel work going on in and around the French Quarter.

I would suggest he move first.
