    U.A. Local 290 step 1 apprentice starting wage is $12.49 here in the Portland Oregon area. The next raise takes you to $16.06. Non union shops is lower than that. This is for commercial hvac.

    paul,
    i think here in kc it is they start out at $22.42 but then they switched them to day school one day a week instead of night school 2 nights a week so they added 3 or 4 bucks an hour so they can make the same money as if they were working 5 days!!!!!!!! confusing but either way they make way too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Not that good at baseball. After school took a bus than train to make 6.50 an hour. I was lucky to get 4 hrs. 92.

    One date = work week.

    Now Im lucky because It's hard to outsource cold air. Go on goog earth and look at roofs. Your pay is job security. If money is your pois0n than go for electrician. Run wire half your career

    Tell them U should pay them for this opurtunity. Im sure they will give U more than there last Green hire..

    Im going to job corp for hvac and wanted to move to california from florida for my first job. How is the living budget if you make 13hr. What kind of rent am i looking at.

    Job corp is another failed, taxpayer funded federal program, you are wasting your time going there.
    There is not better place for the working men than the union! 100% UA the only HVAC union!

    Please don't raise up old threads.

    I agree that 13 is not enough to make a move like that.

    The site owners should make a rule forbidding the resurrection of old threads but since there isn't such why do you care?
