    I now pronounce you Man and Union. Congrats.
    It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.

    I won't say what I'm being paid but its significantly more than a 1st yr apprentice. I have 5 yrs of schooling 2 nights a week to look forward to.
    Oh, the school in anaheim is closing after this semester (5 minutes from home...)

    It's been an incredibly hard decision as I make good $$ where I'm at plus lots of little perks, however the education is something that cannot be taken away from me, ever.
    I never considered myself "pro" or "anti" union, so we'll see what happens from here.
    Make sure you ask about whats your pay scale is going to be after the apprenticeship, they have different brackets per union classification(btj,mes etc)
