I'm over $35 an hour... if thats fair enough. But I have friends that are electricians that make under $30, I don't understand why they stay with their employer, but maybe that's what they are worth?

Many things decide ones pay... not just the fact they do commercial vs residential...

I've had many offers making more than I am now, but happiness is a factor for me, so i chose a little less money for a better long term relationship.. I do love the residential aspect though, i've done my tour of duty in commercial and industrial, I just like the residential atmosphere better.

Thats the thing, you're really not making much because it cost so much to live, where i'm making good money and cheap living expenses...
