"In Houston, TX there are dealers offering $25-30 for experienced electric techs to start and competition is sometimes fierce in that regard. But, I think a lot of it is "tennis ball techs" that bounce from dealer to dealer and leaving openings in their wake.".

"What happens when you have to go up steps to get in the place, like most of my warehouse customers? Two hand held boxes is how I do that and then many trips back and forth to get special tools and parts. Not fun.".
