Welding is going to soon be a very bad field to be in. Tens of thousands of welders are unemployed because of the oil prices, and oil isnt bouncing back any time soon.

Welders are going to be like Medical Coding and Billing soon.

Oil is nowhere near where all welding is done..

>>1027309
Oil drives pretty much all manufacturing related jobs

>keep framing until you know framing inside and out
>buy your own trucks, and tools
>hire a white framer who is dumber than you to be the foreman
>staff out the rest with Mexicans
>work your way to become a general contractor
>buy property and use your company to build housing plans

Most people who own a construction business are good at construction and terrible at business. There is no long good outcomes long term to working in the trades for someone else.

>100k+ EASILY
i've done laboring jobs for large, reputable companies and some of the pay has been as low as $19.50 an hour after tax even though the work sometimes consisted of hauling "25kg" bags of old concrete (some of the bags we actually weighed were closer to 35kg) up 60 stairs for 9 hours with only one <20 mins break.

some of them paid all right, between $25-35 an hour but the work made the $19.50 hour jobs seem cruisy.

no way would i ever consider actually making this a career, especially when there are somewhat attainable bludge jobs that pay close enough.
