    With H2B having become ridiculous, we have decided to get 'immigrant' labor from the lower 48.

    We are setting ourselves up with cabins for temporary employees to live in.

    We need guys interested in coming up to work 4 days a week, 10 hours a day from may until september 30.

    Living accommodations are supplied, that means no cost for rent, electricity, heat etc.
    Use of company vehicle for personal travel to go fishing or what not on your days off (has to be shared by a crew, not enough vehicles for each individual guy)

    and we pay between $12 and $17./hr depending on what you can do.

    Positions in Maintenance and Installation available.

    Crew Leads, operators, laborers.

    The Idea works best for people from hotter climates, where summer is miserable (texas, arizona, new mexico etc) you work here in AK during the worst time to live down there, and then can return home for the winter, during the worst time up here (winter)

    Summer Temps up here range from 55 to 75 degrees.

    Let know if anyone is interested in rent free summer work in AK with 3 days a week free to go fishing or explore what AK has to offer.

    Come "immigrate" to AK for the summer!

    If I were single and much younger this would be great.

    I am retired too!

    I guess I had it good, as I worked a firehouse schedule for most of my 23 yrs. thus giving me time to part time on the side.

    I love your idea! Good luck to you.

    This is an awesome idea....I've been to Alaska, wish I could do something like this, but too old.

    I might be interested. Alaska would sure beat the summer here. Plus it's Alaska! come on! Looking for work this summer around here to supplement what business I do have and there isn't much... I've got a few things set-up here but since I own the equipment I can make money having someone do the work for me. No rain, good clients left when the refinery moved 500 of the good paying jobs.

    Get with me with some more information. I get out of school in late April so I could make the starting date. I've got a couple years of exp., clean record etc.

    Let me know!
