My dad wants to know how much a Framing Carpenter gets paid in Texas. He is thinking about moving over there to get a job over there as a Framing Carpenter. He wants to know if it will be worth moving over there from California. thnx

In TX just as in CA, they hire illegals for most residential construction jobs. They do have a lot of new developments going but the profit margins are very tight when you talk about a new house that sells for anywhere between $100K and $150K.
Your dad could do a lot better by moving to the Midwest where a good framer can get $25/hr.
