    Where do you live?

    Here in Michigan your chances would be pretty close to ZERO.

    Sorry dude.........most young men say yeah I can't work for that.........

    okokok when I went to HVACR trade school the instructor asked who is working in this trade right now raise your hands. Me and one other guy put our hands up, out of 30 some students. the instructor said the rest of you need to quit what you're doing and get jobs in this field...........

    Someone in the back said the companies I call only pay 5 bucks an hour, he said hell I can't work for that, the instructor said if you want to learn this trade take the pay cut, or you are wasting your time.............you're getting paid to learn.........think about it............

    I commend you for going to school at nite, it's ruff alot of us did that.
