What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Journeyman Plumber in Chatham:
Stay off your knees, do stretches, try to obtain a sustainable benefits package for you and or your family, if your spouse does not already have benefits. Take the time to educate apprentices properly, after all, it's your job to educate them.
Journeyman Plumber in Woodstock:
With the economy in a constant slumber from "free trade" and rising costs of oil. Its hard for the trades to make decent money while working in the cities the live in. Commuting for work is rising with lower pay and hard work for the trades. The world is becoming saturated with people that will work for less than what you would work for!
The Rich are taking advantage of the working man/woman.
In an example; without plumbers we would still be dealing with Plagues!
