    Collecting CERB but applied for a new job anyways (dear diary)

    Even though I'm collecting $2000 worth of EI a month, decided to apply for an industrial sparky position.

    Would be a huge pay decrease though, down from $25/hour to barely above minimum wage.

    But it looks like it's a fantastic company, in the industry of electrical and instrumentation service and design and has done big projects in oil and gas.

    There are few job postings due to the economic downturn so if I get this job it would be huge to log some actual hours for my electrical apprenticeship.

    Good luck man... they could cut CERB at any point so better to get into something now.


    Plus no one likes the taste of Trudeau's dink, you'll have a better sense of pride

    I was renting several houses to some sparky foreman and some piping inspectors working at a local refinery. Their per diem was around $115 U.S. dollars a day, and their hourly rate was $35-$40. Their weekly rent eventually paid for the purchase price of the houses before the Covid started. The refinery deemed them non-essential and now they are gone.

    But the work is starting to pick back up in the last few weeks at the refinery, got about 10 new tenants in the last month.

    Get your foot in the door with the company. When your company gets some contracts to do work, you might be one of the first ones to start the job. If you wait, you might miss the bus. The slightly above minimum wage is the price you have to pay to be the first in line when the big paying jobs start.
