She's making 6 figures? Something is real fishy, only way I can see that is if she's working on some pipeline or big industrial project with overtime and bonuses working 70+ hours a week. Subtract taxes and fees and shes making 45K in her pocket. Those big project s are usually a few months then no work for several more months and have to travel all over the country living in suitcases.

Work that many hours and the wife will take off with the kids and deplete your bank account and also your old age pension fund. I've seen 65-70 year old guys back on the job almost penniless because they legally took it all.

Or maybe she lives in an area that pays well but also has a higher cost of living. I know a few welders who make close to and just over 6 figures and work 9-5 and maybe the occasional Saturday. Heck, I was making 6 figures plus benefits working 4 days a week at roto. After taxes we cleared much less of course.
Like others have told you, come on down to the states or move out of that overregulated area you live in. You'll have your Ferrari much sooner. I chose to have kids so no Ferrari for me.

Every tradesman i know is the average middle class wage.
Iv heard the skill trade adocates toss around large salary numbers elsewhere also. Thos jobs are far an few between.

Talking about cars, I saw for the first time an orange Maclaren 600LT across the stop light. It was nice, very nice. Too bad it was dark and I couldn't follow it. However I wouldn't want one for the reputation they have.

In western Canada, it's not on common for good construction welders to make 180,000.00 to 240,000.00 a year on projects.

Some on pipeline some on refinery jobs.

Some supply their own rigs.

The fewer hours they work the less they make. But I haven't heard of one making less than 100,000.00 a year.

If they don't work under CLAC, "Christian Labour Association of Canada."

If your in CLAC most times your better off not working union.
