    its a wide range. maybe $12 a hour to start, maybe more or less depending on where you are.
    You can't kiss death without it kissing you back. Death is a passionate kisser.

    Honestly, in the Miami area for example, is $16.25/Hr. too much to ask a "commercial and industrial AC/R company" for? Even straight out of trade school?

    I dont think so? How do they pay a technician.

    You would think so, but I've only met Tradesmen or 1st year Apprentices in the Union making that plus benefits and fringes. First year guys working non-Union couldn't get near that without benefits! Go figure and non-Union guys entering the trade pay for their own schooling.

    I have a bad feeling about joining the union. Down here in GA the government pays for your schoolin and throws you extra money in your pockets. No loans. Thats what im currently doing.

    Work non-Union - making less money, have to pay for insurance premiums, have to pay for your own retirement, have pay for instruments, have to be on-call for free, have to pay for uniforms, etc.
