October 19 at 1111am In highschool I wonder why they pushed college on so hard instead of trades? They didn't tell me union plumbers can make $1600 a week with no OT and NO us DEGREEor that truck drivers can make 6 bands a week if they buy their own truck wNO DEGREE? OR that traveling welders can make 100k a year with NO DEGREE they made it seem like college was the only way to be successful Like Comment Share and 352 others 495 Shares J I'm a weld Inspector traveling inspectors can make 6 figures easy Oct 19 at 1114am Love 2 Reply Delete plied 3 replies Jo NO That's awesome bro I'm a truck driver and we can make 6 figures as well with the right company I just wonder why they ain't tell me about this shit in highschool They made it seem like college was the only way Oct 19 at 1116am Edited Like 3 Reply More justgot1 apocalycious halfmoonhead themightyglamazon systlin roamingaimlesly triggeredmedia It’s almost as if schools push and ideology that benefits schools Bruh trades are in high fucking demand right now too Between now and 2020 there are suppose to be 300000 more jobs and that’s just for welder Shit they’ll pay for you to learn how to do it I just finished high school and got a untility job in a factory and I have almost no experience They’re gonna train me for everything plus it has full health benefits Trades are fucking great My husband is a welder and is very very good at it He got hired by a locksmith company pretty much just by walking in and going “Yes I can weld” All of the other guys there were great at locksmithing but none of them were trained welders and they needed someone who could build custom doors and frames They trained him to do lock stuff too so now he can weld AND pick locks The owner of the company when he handed out Christmas bonuses looked at him and went “Dude we literally cannot fire you because we’d be screwed so here’s your bonus and also we’re giving you a raise” Welders are in desperate demand Blows kisses to this post Anyway learn a trade unionize wear your PPE memorize OSHA’s phone number My husband went to a fast track auto school and made almost 80k at his last job Benefits are shit if you’re in a trade with no union but the money can be really good There are construction projects here in Portland OR that sit around taking months and months longer than they need to because there aren’t enough trades people for all the projects It’s interesting to drive past the same apartment building where nothing seems to be happening for like a year and then suddenly in a few weeks it all seems to finish up at once I see these posts a lot but I always wonder which trades have a lot of women andor are friendly to women wanting to enter them? Because that’s still an issue in some trades Meme
