Do you guys think Electrical is the top trade?

Respected? Well paid? Good work?

Often I hear Plumbers are the top, but I don't believe so. Plumbing is heavy and poopy job

I think that a elevator mechanic would be the best trade. And to be more specific a elevator adjustor ( they are the guys that commission and start -up )the elevator after it is installed. One of the best controls guys I was ever around was a construction adjuster for Otis Elevator Co. A elevator mechanic is a electrician , millwright , computer PLC and VFD tech, hydraulic mechanic and a rigger and iron worker.

My dads side of the family were all bricklayers. I always have respected that trade. I was always told by them to become an electrician. They said it was the cleanest and easiest job on the site, plus the electricians are the smartest people on site. After becoming an electrician I learned they were dead wrong on the first two. Lol.

It sucks now , was a great trade in the 60's thru the 90's. The more corporate, China and the insurance cabal want to run it, the more it's gonna suck.
