The money might be crap, but think of the positives - working in the sun will improve your fitness beyond anything attainable in the gym and those Islanders could show you a good time with a whole fresh outlook on life.
I'm not talking about being calling random tradies to try and get work in a trade you've never worked in, and getting trained on the job. I'm talking about having those backgrounds already and being able to pick them back up if required. I may not have made that clear

And I've already made those calls pre-emptively. Job waiting for me no worries. Construction is yet to be drastically affected. At least where I have connections.
