all jokes about sagging belts, dirty t shirts and your ass crack hanging out, how many of you guys make a living as a plumber? I want to own and operate my own recording studio as a career but that takes money and a steady day job, i was considering becoming a plumber because

- its a recession proof field, people always need gas and have to poop
- They make pretty good money
- Can get into a union

If you are how did you get into the position? Im only 18 so i would be starting young
5150 III 100W, Mesa 4x12 Cab, Framus Cobra Cab, M-Audio Profire 610, ISA One Pre, SC607-b, Equator D5's, Countryman Type 85 Di box, Radial JCR, Superior Drummer, SSD 4 Ex, TS9, NS-2 and the list goes on and on

Not me.

I also have some concern for you, as you aspire to be a plumber at 18.

im an electrician, its better. Its a bit more dangerous, but it pays better
1. go to electrician school
2. get electrician license
3. ??????
4. PROFIT!!!!

also keep in mind, a lot of people are willing to do a lot of plumbing on their own house, a lot of people wouldn't go near electricity.

you need to go to trade school and do an apprenticeship usually, it is pretty good money, especially if you work nights and weekends.

trades are great to get into. quick learning and qualifications, good cash, and usually good demand.

great way to make a foundation for a good living or perhaps setting yourself upto go back to school, or start up a business.

This. I know I'd rather get shocked than have poop explode in my face when a pipe bursts.

no not really, unless you're dealing with high voltage which would take good experience before you're ready to tackle something that big.

most common household shocks barely even sting. and of course theres always a lot of safety in this job, and you wont get shocked unless you're grounded

The majority of people would rather die than speak in public.

I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of people would rather die than get sprayed in the face with taco diarrhea.

My mom's currently in school for piping engineering... takes a little more time but will outdo anything you get as a plumber (job security isn't as great though) and isn't too incredibly hard to get into.

I've got a mate who's dad is a plumber and it sounds like a pretty decent job as long as you don't mind getting a bit dirty on occasion. It pays like crazy too.
