    There are 2 ways to look at it. 1) the grass is always greener. 2) go independent.

    As far as looking for higher pay etc then you just have to search but now may not be the time to do so. If your looking to join a union then you have to look in your local area. But if you do you may have to quit your current job.

    Going independent may mean a lot of sacrifice. And your going to have to dig to find jobs. Also depending on your experience. Like being broader then just putting paint on walls. Then your chances of getting more work goes up. Are you experienced in staining or hanging wallpaper ?
