    Default Cox Comm in Myrtle Beach, best pay offered yet

    Cox Communications in Myrtle Beach have advertised for locators.

    They offer $4.57 an hour.

    That is full time pays $9,500 a year. So, do we have a typo here or a new trend?

    At least to the people who speak English.

    It was awhile ago during the last recession but a co-worker told me of a job he applied for at a construction company. They told him what the pay was and when he said it was below minimum wage they told him they had a bunch of "wetbacks" sitting outside waiting to take it.

    That's when you tell that person 'Then why have applications and help wanted ads? Just go outside and pick what you need.'

    It's so amazingly laughable. Look around who pays the least for locating across the nation, and yet has THE most profit and is not regulated. Not phone, various fiber co, power or even gas, all of which have high fixed operations cost. Cable companies have one one of the lowest fixed cost. And the true kicker is your bill is what...$100...$150...$200 a month!?!?!? $40.00 bucks for net a month, and net literally cost about $6.00 to get that to your house.

    They changed it, but still doesn't change the fact that cable doesn't pay their locate companies.

    That is an interesting point about some CATV companies not paying their contractors.

    Here in Maryland some years ago Comcast got to be buried joint with the electric and phone.
    But they kept getting behind in their payments. The contractor foreman told me that they were 6 months behind on their payments. While still authorized to put their TV buried joint the contractors simply left the cable sitting on spools on the job site, they refused to put it in. I must point out since then some amends and been made and in some areas they are again being buried joint.

    Anyway instead of paying to drop it in the ditch with the other stuff they then had to pay to have their TV installed separately and that must have cost more.

    I figured somebody made a typo. Was joking about the new trend. Wish I had been making up the stuff about the illegals in this country.
