Default Occupation GONE!

I left my run too late...

OK, so my occupation (College & Vocational Teachers) has dissapeared...
Thankfully my husband's is still on the list, (Contractors & supervisors, Carpentry trade). I was achieving more points than he (73 / 71) but now it's up to him!

I've read the new restrictions, and it seems it will slow things considerably, accepting up to only 1000 of each profession each year...

Honestly though, I see lots of jobs for carpenters, but the feedback suggests getting work is tough. Does he really have a chance to earn a decent wage, enough to keep us going...
