It is amazing how many jobs are open in the construction field and how long it takes to fill the openings. Not everyone is meant to go to universities but with high schools basically saying that's the only route if you want to have a livable income is what I see as being a big contributor to this whole issue.

The company I work for pays for all of the schooling needed for you to obtain your journeyman card, so like you said there's no S.L.D., the classes are 2 nights a week for 4 years with some down time in between moving on the next years level. When it is all said an done you can be pulling in a ton of money. Our company works mostly prevailing wage jobs so our journeymen are pulling in around $62-$64 an hour after all benefits are calculated in, with the overtime they put in, some of them are pulling $100k plus a year.

Plus some some of our guys get to work at this beautiful stadium "along the banks of the Olentangy" every day, who wouldn't want that job?
