I wouldn’t mind working as a contractor, labour job in the next couple months. They get paid heaps, and I need the money to travel at beginning of the year.

I`m blue collar and proud of it. Blue collar can be unskilled, low paid labour and highly skilled, highly paid tradespeople that require 4 year apprenticeships and certification. I love being a mastercraftsman, I couldn`t imagine how boring working in an office must be.

LOL. i tihnk it means he's done his apprenticeship and he can now help others with their apprenticeship. it's nothing like level 77 grand wizard mage master or w/e.

they're in VERY high demand in canada. electricians, drywall installers, fence installers, all making like $100,000 to $300,000 a year... icon_confused.gif and they're making a $hitload of money doing their apprenticeship while those life science nerds are going farther and farther into debt to become doctors.. a job which they'll probably hate.

lol @ asians.

Yes, I have completed the reuirements of my 4 year apprenticeship and now I`m a journeyman tradesperson. Most trades are in high demand here in Alberta and the pay and perks are excellent.

i don't look down on blue collar workers cuz i know plenty of people who are, including my father, and i can appreciate the kind of labor they have to do.

but you all gotta know that you like your jobs because of us "nerds." my dad is a floor sander, and his job would be near impossible if it weren't for the electrical machinery that he uses -- vacuum, floor sander, buffer, etc. think about who made those things. blue collars? nah, engineers who studied about electricity and 0's and 1's made those. they didn't just half-@$$ it either. they made it durable, easy to use, efficient, and as good as they are, they are still working on improving them.

i know for sure that you wouldn't like your job if you have to hold a piece of sand paper in your hand and manually buff 5,000 sq ft of hardwood floor, then get a broom to sweep up all that dust and take it out to the trash every 15 minutes.

I don`t mean to insult your father, but I mentioned the difference between skilled and unskilled blue collar work in a previous message. However, I agree with you that the engineers who design(and continually improve) our tools make my job possible.
