Author Topic: considering move: what can I make as a drywaller in NH? landscaper?  (Read 3225 times)

Considering the move, looking to count my costs before I commit. First things first: find work!
Just trying to get ideas of what I'm looking at here.
I'm a drywaller with a little over 5 years experience in hanging and finishing with my own tools and transportation. What's a general pay range I could expect if I were hired in NH?
Currently I am a drywaller in New York and most jobs offer anywhere from $8.00-$14.00/hour.
I also have several years experience in landscaping/hardscaping. What's that field like? What about manufacturing?
Thanks for your help!

Here's a Glassdoor search for Drywall in within 100 miles of New Boston NH, so all around NH.

From what I can tell, there's some pretty decent paying 'maintenance technician' type jobs for apartment buildings and things that include the keyword drywall. Archstone apartments, for example, located in Dedham or Cambridge MA (south on 95 a bit, you could live in Nashua or Salem and drive down) pay about $18 an hour... so with the extra pay, you could likely afford to commute between NH and MA.

I'm sure there's similar paying jobs in NH though that pay similarly that aren't listed on Glassdoor or Indeed. :-)

I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act." - Why The Gun is Civilization
