It cracks me up, when on this side of the country the average foreman makes about $50hr and working 50-60hr weeks if they want. Then you have state and even some private sector positions offering wages that are probably half what everyone else is paying.

This is an average for a journeyman, not a supervisor working in a dangerous environment. I wonder what the benefits look like.
