Re: Newbie question.
First of all smitty, how would one get in touch with a mechanic that has been laid off? I feel for any that have been cut by the economy. And second, at least where I live a dealership mechanic gets paid quite a bit more than 20$ an hour. Maybe it is different in other parts of the country but, up here in the mountains that trade is very competitive. What with almost every vehicle being a four wheel drive. I've spent alot of time in the hoosier state and have come to realize that you are right about mechanics getting paid less. There are a ton of them. And isn't anderson, In. at least, a huge former GM employer?
"Evidently", you might be right where you are. But "evidently" comes across as kind of arrogant. My apologies if I was. I still think the bus barn would be a better way to go. They know the bus and are easy to deal with. Maybe its 'cause they arent running a business based on repair estimates. But, that is just a thought.
