    I'd say the best bets would be Pennsylvania or Texas. Pipe isn't my line of work. Yo might look here and see http://www.jobbankinfo.org/ They have listings all over the country and you might be able to find something there. Hope it is usefull. Good luck.

                  There is definate work in the shipyards in portsmouth virginia, and pipeline work in texas. You also might wanna consider overseas jobs, which pay 6 figures, plus benefits, with paid vacation time to see the family. Their hurting for people overseas everywhere.



                  By the way, you guys are quick to help out a woman, man, I should probably change my name to Ms. Usmcruz

                    Could you point me in the right direction on finding more info about working overseas. The wife and I feel like getting out of here for a year or so.

                      Will do, give me a day, and I will get all the info together. There are actually over a dozen companies that do welding overseas, and your talking 6 figures tax free. Well they dont tax 10 months of it, and only tax you the last two months which is still pretty much tax free. You would get paid anywhere from $8,000 to $12,000 a month depending on your skill, and what company you would work for. Stipulations is, you cant have any felonies in the past 5 years, you will need a passport, and if you were ever in the service, or if your a disabled vet, you get preference. Also if your wanting to get hazard pay, you would have to pick a location like iraq or the like, but you cant bring the wife, but overseas spots like brazil and such you can. Either way the pay is phenominal, and its very easy to land the job, all you guys would need is the will to want to travel overseas. Like I said, give me a day or two to go to my guy on the base here, and get the info, but tomorrows the fourth, and he wont be back till monday, so give me till monday. Anything to help out another welder!

                        Is it only the last two months that are taxed or up to $XXX amount? I had read up on overseas work in the past and it seems like the laws had been changed to were you could make a certain amount tax free and then everything over that was taxed. I'm not questioning just would like to know more about traveling overseas for work aswell.
