Pricing has nothing to do with it...in this industry it's all about ""WHO YOU KNOW"...and what your willing to offer in the way of so called future retire homes, week end trips, fishing trips, motorcycles. All the fun thing you (and your family) will never enjoy because your out there working your A.... off trying to make a living. The big companies like Dycom/Mastec have most of the big projects tied up. Your best bet, link up with a reputable company, make sure your paid on time and let them find the work. Just be safe, treat your laborer with respect, treat them the way you would expect to be treated.
