    I'm just joking, But most pay anywhere from $6-10 an hour depending on experience and immigration status.

    I don't know what they pay in Chipley but that sure is a small and old run down place. I was there last year and notice the old school from back in the 50's with no a/c was still in use. Good luck with your change in scenery.

    well im simply just looking to stay in the field, so if i had to travel a half hour or so to get there then so be it. I'm a white male, early 20's that has 6 years experience owning my own business, and a many classes under my belt including business classes, so a managerial or foreman job would be reasonable i believe.

    You might get $13-15 down here, with one of these big giant corps.

    I'd learn Spanish if you wanna be a foreman/crew leader. Bilingual is A+++ down here.

    Golf courses are always hiring. Don't know what they pay though.
