    Sparkys are at towards the top of the tradie heap. Once you get your card you should be good to land a job anywhere. Obviously, commercial >>> residential.

    My electrician is a Commercial union guy who earns $90/hr, and also does jobs on the side. Still in his 20s and likely earns $150k.

    These averages are always pulled down due to low COL areas.

    Anywhere where there's a sizeable population (e.g. cities with pop >1mm) average wages are always higher.

    this. also, you're prob talking working at some company

    being an independent contractor you can make much more.

    also, as aristotelian just said, they do side jobs where they can charge 100/ hr or more

    There are places on this planet (with good education systems) where degrees don't cost much at all.

    But I was speaking to my dentist a few months ago who told me that she went to a city university and ended up saving something like 100k compared to going to NYU. And she instantly got a job in a dental clinic close to home in Brooklyn, and paid her limited student debt shortly after graduation (living with parents, starting out, saving for her own practice kind of thing).

    I don't get why someone would say...rack up a 100k+ student loan bill to study art history (random example).

    A lot of downsides. Getting up early as chit, working long as chit, a lot of manual labor in hot/cramped/dirty conditions, on call a lot...

    There is a reason most people rather get a degree to make a living than being a tradie. The ones that pay pretty well, aren’t very desirable.

    Just don't become a general contractor. We deal with all the chit for the same money.

    Start a small electrical company with two or three employees and you'll be swimming in work.

    My electrician is good enough to show up whenever I call within a few days, but for big jobs I need to let him know a month in advance or more. No work shortage.

    Not me specifically, best friend is an electrician actually, constantly complains about the working conditions and having to get up so early. Literally comes home and passes out.
