We must be doing something wrong.
Finishing a job for a fellow from Iowa. Accepted a new job yesterday for a fellow who just arrived from Colorado. A call last evening is for a lady moving here from Georgia. One call this morning was from a fellow who couldn't remember his own phone number because he had just moved here from Texas. The second call this morning was from Chualar, California.
This is totally abnormal.
I'm guessing you're referring to the immigration toward your location.
I just got in from a job that is running an aerial primary to a large cannabis grow. The owner's name is Xin Xing. I probably do 2 a week like this where there's not a soul on site that speaks anything but Mandarin. And every car is tagged in either Utah, Nevada or California.
I guess the prairie is experiencing a wave of "internationalism". I hope they feel welcome. I also hope they learn how to drive and learn some English.
Ni hao ma!
Three things. One is that real estate is getting absurdly expensive in many of the places you mention. Two is that people are finding out that they can work from anywhere with a decent internet connection.
Three is the political/civil unrest situation. Out of respect for the P&R ban I'll leave it at that.
