    I'd ask $100/h when I'm working on eqp and half if I don't if that's my responsibility with all health care and any tools I want paid for and hefty insurance for my family. seems a lot of want from the company and dangerous job...

    Sounds like a great opportunity for someone to learn
    Our fate is ours alone to decide as long as we remain armed heavily enough to dictate it.

    In realality, If your already qualified your not going to know everything they want you to and you will be working under somebody who has already been there so you won't get top rate. There are mobile home refrigerators that run on ammonia and alot of hospitals that use high pressure boilers. Non-union ($15) / Union ($25).
    If your not getting the results you desire then change. People change from either desperation or inspiration.
