    I can remember when I was at 14-15 per hour I was on call, overhaulin compressors, and working for a Comm/Ind contractor. Today it seem the apprentice/pm guys want an expierenced tech salary doing residential and light comm. pm, they are not on call and only doing light service calls like water leaks and noises. I would expect someone making 14-15 per hr be on call and able to handle service calls a little more than a water leak.

    $$ just dont seem to go as far as

    they used to. But there does seem to be a discrepancy between starting wages these days (high) versus experienced tech's wages (low). Maybe its just demographics: the baby busters can hold out for better pay because they're in such demand.
