Don't know what kind of low voltage you're talking about but there is not only the IBEW but CWA/Communication Workers of America.

Definitely am. My experience and knowledge set me apart from the other candidates where I was applying. While its not union wages Ive had a steady increase in value as Ive progressed. I also see a very large value in certification training which my new employer has committed to with Lutron and Crestron.

I don't know any of the guys that I've worked with that live in NYC or very close in NY. Most live in NJ or even CT and commute. When I lived in upstate NY I didn't work far from NYC.

My response was about the "rtw".
Wages are lower but the over all cost of living reflects that.

I have been very educated here on this forum about wages around the country. Some places like NH and MA surprised me on what is charged in hourly rates and really opened my eyes. I was always aware the tri-state area was expensive and other places were more affordable but figured the disparity wouldn't be so drastic as it appears from reading posts here. Cost of living is one thing but items like new vehicles and insurances that a business needs to run still remain in the same ballpark regardless of the hourly rates.

I have thought about the same thing, vehicles are often cheaper in the more populated areas. I think the wages more than pay for the difference in cost of living, if you commute in you come out way ahead in the end.

Not to mention you can make money for thirty years in the expensive area and retire to an inexpensive area.

Yes Sir, this is what I did. Born in Virginia and returned to Virginia.
