That's exactly what he did in a Walmart pharmacy and ruined a "small" number of ceiling tiles.

WOW! The big question is who the Fook let an apprentice work alone without supervision in a commercial building? That would be huge fines over here!

Sounds to me like they don't have apprentices or master plumbers. They just have the honor system.

That's sweet that the company you work for hires blind people. That can be the only explanation as to how the rookie didn't see that it was obviously not a press fitting, either by the way it looked before pressing or after.

Also, if he did really try to press it, shouldn't the coupling and copper at least be crimped and not in an untouched condition?

What you raise your right hand in front of a judge and say, "Your honor I promise to be a plumber from now on" and bingo you have a plumbing certificate?

Not even a plumbing certificate. Just gotta register your business for tax purposes. I checked, they have a general contractor license but that's about it. As schit can tell you some parts of new york state are the same. You slap joe the plumber on your pick em up truck and youre in business!!


Not all states have state government run trades licenses. And even the ones with big unions don't always cover the whole state either. Lots of areas in america you're free to call yourself whatever trade you want.



It's the honor system. You tell the homeowner you're a real plumber and they take your word for it.

The company I work for is a joke. The owner was too lazy to go outside and show the kid exactly what he needed. Way too much work and not enough help, its embarrassing.
