Hello I have been searching eveywhere to find a answer to my question, but no ones situation fits mine. Okay so I started working construction since I was 17 I'm 21 now I know drywall, taping, tile, and some plumbing, and I guess I caught a electrical contractors eye. He asked me if I wanted to work for him and learn electrical and I said I would love to. I don't know anything about electrical and I always wanted to know what is going on. He offerd me $15 a hr to start a little bit less than I was making now, but everyone told me to go forget because it's a really good trade so I accepted. It's been a month now and I have been running wires mc cables, connecting them to j box's and installing cam lights ect.. I keep reading that you guys are going to school and signing up for unions. I live in California is it even legal for me to work with wires?? Hopfully someone can shine some light on this for me before I bring it up to my boss so I don't look like a idiot lol thanks.
