My absence from the duck has been noticed by a few ppl.
I'm just busy at work… and at the same time I'm trying to get into a skilled trade. Went to different unions and companies. Fuck em nobody hiring me even if I got a few skills. :( Fucking skilled trade shortage… seems like a fucking myth propagated by the newspapers… :(
Shortage my ass. A union guy told me that there is always a stack of applicants for apprenticeship. Union not taking me unless I got an employer willing to hire me. Employers wont hire me either lol. The shortage of labour as said by the media is correct… meaning there is a shortage of people who wanna work for $6 an hour.
Cmon. Who the fuck is gonna work in a construction site for $6 an hour?
“Shortage” yeah right!!! It is common knowledge that the construction worker, electrician, plumber, carpenter, etc… make $30 an hour. And with that kind of info as part of common public knowledge… who wouldnt wanna do it? Everyone wanna make $30 an hour. Everyone wanna get a nice house and a couple nice cars and early retirement. :)
I'll keep tryin tho. I know a few people in construction. Maybe they might help me out in getting an apprenticeship.
I know that an apprenticeship will make my income slightly lower for awhile… but cmon. $30 per hour in the future sounds like a good return for a sacrifice. :) And self-employment has a 6 figure income potential… Possibly SEVEN FIGURE if you get really really really fucking successful. :)
