It is but in the non union world many people call the guys who work under the head hancho, the helper. I always used to refer to my men as helpers when I was there even though most could run the job. I since learned that even though it was not meant to belittle their knowledge, I should call them either my worker or my mechanic.Welcome aboard. Isn't 12 years a long time to be a helper?
Are you still getting around okay? You guys have been in business since three years after the Declaration of Independence was signed.I refer to myself as a helper because i am unlicensed. You see, my dad has been an elctrical contractor since 1779 and have been workin for him since i was big enough to carry his tool pouch around. i consider myself an experienced electrician but other than my 1099's i have no paperwork to back that up. i was hoping this forum might give me access to some of the technical information i lack since i have never had any sort of schoolastic training. any info could help.
