If I could do it all over again, I would have stayed in California after active-duty to live and work in San Diego. Nicest city in the world if you ask me.

Maybe it's just me but it sure seems that every yahoo that comes here claiming to be either in school or young and starting out, can't write or spell worth a ****. I can't take this ****** writing anymore.

It's just embarrassing and this is supposedly our future. Cripes I hope I croak young.

I'm no wizz kid by any means but at least get the basics correct.

We were just talking about this tonight (me and another electrician from the old days). When I started out in 1990 I made $7.00 per hour whatever that is per year.

I think education has gone down hill. Lowered expectations. A high school diploma should mean something. I do not think it does anymore. I bet people in their 70's who dropped out of the 10th grade are more literate than many high school graduates of today.

And they always ask about the money.

1. Like what you do.
2. Live where there is work or you enjoy the area.
3. Money will follow or you have to make decisions.

What school are you going to .....? Beauty school, driving school, middle school..? I suppose you haven't been watching the news lately or been up on current events much..? You want to get into a field and make a lot of money...? your not gonna find it doing construction that's for sure.. Why dont you google......"What kind of jobs or professions are going to be in high demand in the next 10 years." I'm pretty sure construction in not even on the top 30.

I think electrical can be associated with far more than construction. If he likes S.D. he can probably work on ships electrical if he tries hard enough.

Nearly every new technology uses electricity in some way or another. So construction may not be in the top but electrician will be.
