  • Become a plumber

    I just knew it! I retired too soon. I just saw on CNN that there is a demand for plumbers and they make $130,000 a year. It must be true, cause I saw it on Television!!

    The average salary for a plumber in my town is only $30,000. And a ton of them are out of work now because new construction had virtually stopped dead.

      Yes, I am thinking about that. but it seems take to long to be an independent licensed plumber.

        Maybe they should have some of them correspondance classes that they advertise on late night tv, ya know "medical transcriptionist, paralegal, plumber, you can get your Plumbing license in as little as 3 weeks!!!"

          Thank goodness it takes 5 years in Illinois to be a journeyman. You do see a lot of shops pimping apprentices as licensed plumbers though.

          Otherwise the market would be saturated and I could only charge $25 an hour vs. $35!

          Although anyone can clean sewers...thus the pay grade declines.

            Looks like Sally Struthers gave up eating the kids in Somalia.

              130 g's a year, so I have to take a pay cut...

              National average for all plumbers is $44,000 annually. But if they want to raise it to 130 grand, I have seniority, I'm first in line.

                Sorry about the pay cut--but that's what happens when you are one of those "overpaid" teachers!

                  It would take three of us to match that.
