What do they think journeyman means?

I know things differ in other areas, but in Massachusetts journeyman=licensed

I don't think they know,and don't forget you gotta work live...:laughing:
I'm sure they don't know. It's amazing how many places advertise for a "master electrician" when they have no clue what the difference is between a master and a journeyman. If you are in a position to be hiring someone, you should at least do a little bit of research to understand the qualifications you are looking for and what they mean.

As far as the working live thing, I've made my opinion pretty clear on that in the past. It's not the popular opinion here on this forum so I won't go into that again now.
