Bricklayer

From what country? And what countries are in demand. What I found out was – I started of my career as a bricklayer apprentice in Boston Massachusetts, USA about 15 years. At that time I was in the local bricklayers union and a full journeyman was paid 26 dollars an hour. By the time I quit in 1998 they were being paid about 30 dollars an hour. I quit from doing it until 2006 when I moved to Atlanta Georgia and started working for a non-union bricklaying company and they paid the bricklayers 18 dollars an hour. If you stay up in the northern part of USA and work in the union you will be paid almost double working in the south. The union is not very strong down in the south, I couldn’t find the bricklayers union here in Atlanta.

Maintenance Electrician

I know all the training and stuff that has to be done to become one but to branch off and maybe specialize into one like maintenance electrician, is maintenance electrician and maintenance mechanic the same thing really? Would you know how to be a mechanic to do that? Any honest answers would be appreciated. What I found out was – a maintenance mechanic will maintain, build and move machines. I think many are millwrights or in that union a maintenance electrician is just that, an electrician. they are commonly employed by a facility, either school or factory or whatever, to maintain the electrical system

Robert Assad talks about his experiences in the electrical construction and maintenance electrician program at Alfred State College.

Plumber Gasfitter

So I can choose between these three. I like to work with my hands. Which one is better for Job Openings, Pay, and Job Opportunities (Ability to Move up). I like Plumber the most because of the Ability to be able to be a Pipefitter, steamfitter or Gasfitter but I think I would like the others just as much. Which one would you pick and why. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Depends. New construction is diffrent then service. In the trade you will do both. So saying that the number one reason I would not be a plumber is the service calls. Yes that means cleaning up peoples shit. So for me plumber was no go. Carpenter would not be a bad idea but your mostly out in the elements. Extreme hot and cold. Electrician was a better choice for me and I might be a bit proud sence my family is half electricians. But the down fall is the potential of electrocution. Gives me a rush, Its known in the construction trade that we make good money.

Project Funding

I’m writing a book and one of the lead characters is a professor of Archaeology. He needs funding for a project coming up one year from now. I’m assuming he would work with a museum or university and maybe have a fund raiser? Try to find wealthy contributers or maybe celebrities to attend the fund raiser? Any advice or insight is apreciated. And so today I found out that… Archaeologists in academia are funded primarily through grants. In the US, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is one such public grant agency. The amounts funded are typically fairly small, however the archaeologist gets to choose what he wants to research and where. In contract, archaeologists in the private sector are typically funded through contracts from developers or land management agencies (like the Bureau of Land Management) who are required to comply with environmental protection laws. In these cases, the archaeologist does not get to choose where he works, but funding is significantly more generous, often involving dozens of people for months of field work. If you are writing about professional archaeologists, I advise that you contact one and go talk to them. You will learn in one hour more than you ever could on the internet and your writing will be much stronger.
