Default Which trade should I learn? (Electrician, Plumber, Carpenter)

My uncle knows someone in each of these unions and I am going to start an apprenticeship in August. Which is the best pay and least harm to your body. Also I turn 22 August.


I am leaning towards electrician.

Out of those three, electrician makes the most money and have the least amount of headache..

Im a general contractor/ flooring retailer and from my experience, electricians have it the best..

Thing about electrical work is they are all inside work so customers dont know wtf to look for and what to nitpick so it is your word against theirs. You can overcharge whatever and they would have to just go with it.

Thanks. How is business as a general contractor?

Two of my uncles started their own electrical shop years ago and are doing very well financially. Well north of six figures a year. I hope to follow in the same path. Any advice would be welcomed.

Business is good especially right now, it is the hot season for guys like us but too much headache. Too much.

Im trying to get into flooring full time but the money keeps calling lol. It is hard to let go.

Be an electrician, trust me. I have many subs and my electricians make six figures easily.

Im thinking of branching out to Vegas for Hardwood floors. Out there, flooring companies charge like $8 / sqft installed which is insane.

I bring in containers from China so i can easily charge $4/sf installed and squash the competition in vegas.
