[question] Learning to "talk the talk", and general career advice

I've been browsing product catalogs and taking trips to lowes to try to get down the electrician "lingo". Are there any other resources I can refer to for learning what to call all of the little couplings, fittings, and equipment I use at work?

Also, I'm a first year apprentice at a small non-union shop. I'm pretty sure I could make more money working union. Are there generally more opportunities to grow and advance in a small non-union shop as opposed to a big company hiring union employees?

Sure there is. For example Bill and his buddy started Microsoft. I don't think they are Union.

You company like theirs could grow to a monstrous size, you becoming the CEO, making big bucks, in charge of laying off 18,000 of your workers.

Union doesn't necessarily say your company is going to be successful.
