Many guys think that construction workers are making the big bucks, but thats not really the case. Maybe the ones that are in business for themselves are. but only if they have lucrative contracts. I just placed three guys in the largest firm in town, and they are making less than $15 an hour. I think you can make that working at a fast food restaurant nowadays. Anyway, stay tuned!
Railroad workers are some of the highest paid guys out there. I don't know much about the job, but I had a friend that was a conductor. he always had the newest pickup truck and a nice house. I know that railroad salaries are very lucrative for sure.
I'm just a single blogger here doing my thing. I work in the employment agency business, and I see alot of these guys come through my door. Most of them are wearing dirty work boots and ripped jeans, and they make twice as much as I'll ever make.
