that pretty much bang on. 10 - 12 to start to see if your worth ****. Then it goes up from there untill you reach 28-36. Good luck getting in the trade right now as quite a few guys are sitting at home.

Yeah, I was thinking that if you have a job, keep it. Wait until there's work, then switch careers. Or not. Plumbing isn't for everyone at the best of times.

Very few of us switch careers because it takes decades to get good at it and by then, we're too old and ugly to do anything else.

I would be just a little bit more worried about finding a job as an apprentice before even dreaming about starting your own business.:eek:
Best of luck to you, hope it works out.

I hope you do too but this site is for professional plumbers only. Since you don't work in the PLUMBING PROFESSION you might want to check out the other message boards, you might be able to get the info you're looking for there, good luck.:yes:

i already work 12 hours a day in continental shifts, so i dunno what all the mindless conclusion jumping is about
and this is how you choose to spend you free time after working 12 hours a day?

Do you realize that many of us work 12+ hours a day AS WELL but WE:

PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE NATION

SHOW US SOME DAM RESPECT SON!
