Fist 666 Posted December 17, 2022 Share Posted December 17, 2022 If you live in a union state you can make a lot more than $30/hr. Seattle area ibew is around $60, talked to a dude who moved down from Boston and said it was around $50 there. I'm in a definitive anti-union state so my wages are half that. My cost of living compared to most of those cities/union places is also a lot lower so I'm doing fine. Plumbers and hvac both make more than sparkies around here. Hvac dudes bleed a lot, plumbers deal with human feces, and electricians get zapped every once in a while. You pick your battles. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
