Local tradesman aims to find work in all 50 states: Armed with only a truck full of tools, the skill acquired over his last 40 years in the work force and his smart phone, one local tradesman has made it his mission to find work in all 50 states.
Juan John Bayardo will begin his trek across America on May 5. His goal is to prove that a person in today’s society can find work, no matter what skills or talents they may possess.
According to Bayardo, for the next six to eight months, his primary source of income will be made through various jobs acquired through Craigslist and Facebook.

Bayardo has been working since he was 14 years old. He has worked many different blue collar jobs, including realtor, bartender, window cleaner and waiter. Now, the 54-year-old will put his skills to the test in his attempt to accomplish this journey across the U.S.
Bayardo will document his endeavor on his blog, Gigsacrossamerica. To follow his journey, visit his site here.
