I am ready to quit, my boss is an A-Hole and all we have been doing is work, work, and more work. Ungrateful bastard, never even smiles at me. I can't even get a self esteem boosting "Good Job Today" out of him.

Everything I thought "loyalty" would do for me throughout my whole career, was a myth.
I'm retired now. What I learned was, if you stick around long enough (loyalty), they will replace you with someone younger and cheaper, or eliminate your position all together

GEE when was the last thread that stated I am a lousy employee, who sucks up the hours and pay and gives nothing back in return. I need a raise
LOL
Everyone is Superior to their coworkers, everyone is underpaid, everyone is overworked
Just saying...……………. There are 3 sides to every story !
The employee's , the employers AND THE TRUTH …

I was also running work after 3 years of starting the electrical trade worked for a small company that taught me a lot. I was making 14 dollars an hour. Hang in there and keep learning. There is always something new to learn in this field. When helpers figure out how to install a 3 way they automatically think they are electricians!

An apprentice who was never green is why we "lock out, tag out"

A good electrician can Troubleshoot: If you leave this company & discover the same issues are at the next company, here's your sign; you're green.

Maybe trying to get into the union mite be a good option .

One of the pros that I loved when I made the transition was not having to negotiate my wage , witch usually ends up in being low balled .

I love how as I get more experience and knowledge and time in . Each year I compleat I get a raise no discussion not even up for debate.

So theirs never a feeling like I’m being taken advantage of and not being compensated for progressing each year without pay raises .

One of the many reasons that has improved since I made the jump .
