I was looking thru my computer and found these. I got stiffed on this job for over 5200. That's the same wall, sparky got there first. I had it dialed in and pretty, when the homeowner had me move it slightly, hence the couplings and offsets.

That sparky is a hack. My laborer could have done a much better job. I am in the middle of getting screwed on a 6400 job...sucks ass. Good work

Sparky could have left a jar of Prego with all that Romex spaghetti

In Illinois, electricians aren't licensed or regulated by the state. These guys are non-union, which isn't necessarily bad, but it means that they don't get an apprenticeship, or much training, so anybody can pull romex and call themselves an electrician. The guy paid the GC, twice during the job, when I was done, he stiffed us. The GC got hosed for about 19 grand. I sued, and got 2200. After it was all said and done, I walked away with 200 bucks. The bathroom alone was 50 grand. He had the money, just didn't want to pay.

I can wire better than Sparky. Even if you don't need a license, you do need money, and since wire got so pricey you'd think they'd try to save a little.
