Wondering how you can get a job trimming weed? Wonder no more. Humboldt’s Craigslist has the following ad under farm and garden services.
Need valid card holders to work. 200 a p. Send pic and number for response. U may be searched upon entering and leaving site. Again I have to be able to verify ur script to work on medicine.
Judging from the requirement that the applicant send a picture, I’d guess that trim refers to body shape as well as job position.
The “U may be searched” line seems roughly equivalent to “Hey, baby, wanna screw” as a pickup line in a bar. But who knows, maybe trimmers are desperate…
(No grower would be paying $200-$250 per pound which is over 10% of an outdoor pound for less than a day of work if trimmers weren’t valued. In the last quarter of the year, a good manicurist in Humboldt has all the jobs she can handle.)
I sent a request for an interview to the poster. Sadly, he (I may be overly stereotyping here but I feel pretty safe with the gender specific pronoun) took down the ad.
On the other hand, maybe North county is different. Here is a post entitled Need a Trim that says “experienced “hairstylist” on the road looking for work. will work hard and no complaints.” And there is also a woman looking for fulfilling work who claims she’s a college grad who has worked as a “dumb trim girl” and wants anything above minimum wage.
Then there is Randy.
Hello! My name is Randy and I’m a local, mature, experienced trimmer looking for work. I’m 215 compliant and a quick and efficient trimmer who comes to work, not to waste your time. I’m self contained with my own transportation, tent, cook outfit, and can supply my own food. I have experience using trimming equipment like the TrimPro and the Aardvark, as well as in detail oriented finish trimming. I’ve also worked in water extraction hash production if you need help processing your trimmings. The odds and ends jobs that you can never get around to, like greenhouse or general garden clean up are great too, if that’s where you need help. I will travel to any gig in Humboldt, Mendocino, or Trinity Cos.
Then there is the newby who entitled their post “Free Trimmer.”
im looking for experience more than anything and will trade my labor for a good teacher. im 215 ready and have my papers. i have my own transportation. im honest and hardworking, all i need is some patience.
The best of all is the trimmer who apparently has the magic touch.
19 year old female w/ 215 looking for some trimming work. I live in the area and I’ll make your nugs look beautiful and sugary. Hit me an email and we’ll talk business :) Peace
Perhaps she has some fairy THC dust which she sprinkles as she works.
The more I look, the more Trimsky McGee’s there are. As I told my husband, the world has &*%&% blown up. Everybody’s looking for manicuring work in Humboldt. Trimmers, you’d better get a union. Scabs have come to town to take your jobs for less.
