I see a lot of posts as to salaries for our work. Some by specialty others by years of practice. I had an eye opener on Monday when I called a plumber for a non emergency kitchen sink issue. They came the same day and fixed the problem in literally less time than it took him to walk from his truck in ripped jeans and a not so clean white tee shirt. He certainly knew what he was doing as he fixed the issue in less than 3 minutes. Upon standing up again he says "how does $125 sound". I was quiet for a second and countered $100 cash which he quickly agreed to. After he left I thought is college and the huge student debt that we are burdened with after graduation, much job dissatisfaction, used as everything but a floor mat worth the $100,000 a year? Maybe college isn't the most important thing in the world. Many plumbers and electricians, A/C techs charge just to come to ring your doorbell. This by no means a put down of skilled labor but what value is placed on these services compared to many of us who deal with life and death, malpractice, surly OPs etc? Just venting. Thanks
