When it's busy, I don't have to expend any energy to find work - all I have to do is call the union hall, and they'll send me out..
Now, with there being less work around, I'm forced to actively look for work. Normally this means a phone call to someone I think may be hiring - in which I try to sound not desperate.
Everyone's telling me that they're off now, but that they "have something coming up", so we'll see.
It's starting to get hot, too, and I hate working in the summer - everything takes much more effort when it's 90 degrees out, and for some reason, Murphy's Law kicks in and all the work is in the hottest places around (the desert, large parking lots, unairconditioned warehouses, etc...).
