Every man for himself I say!
Pay should be on a sliding scale with experience.
I am licensed and have been a tradesman for 12 years, why should some new kid just out of his apprenticeship get paid the same?????
ITS NOT RIGHT!

And I'm approaching 60 and retirement.. I'm slow, won't climb ladders, not a forman or management, and bitter that all I make is scale while all my friends have passed me up over the years. Your saying I should be at the top of the pay slide since I stayed around. I could be driving a Lexus? I like your thoughts. You convinced me! THANKS

I am a Union contractor and the KIDS just out of apprenticeship do not make what my expierenced men make....But if you are in construction, I carefully say this, but if they do have most of it down to do quality installations after 5-years in a program, maybe they should become a plumber.

If it was everyman for his self...you'd most likely have no retirement, health care, pay for your own education.

No I am no major Union promoter and there are some real issues with the unions. But they set a standard so even open shop workers benefit.
