I have a whole modern perspective on the Heating & A/C industry after meeting Homer.
I was at a friend’s apartment a few months ago, enjoying the huge championship university basketball game.
I can’t even tell you who was playing that night, or who won, despite the fact that I guess in the long run I was the winner because I met Homer. He is a bit of an different duck, as the saying goes, but he was legitimately funny in addition to insightful. Homer had never had enough money to go to university, in addition to had been working his red collar Heating & A/C job for the last several or 8 years. Here is the part that I found fascinating, because Homer told myself and others he got into the heating in addition to cooling industry because there wasn’t a “paywall” to exclude people prefer him. Homer explained how most professions require a huge outlay of money to get started. Consider the professions of a doctor, an engineer, or a lawyer, that need hundreds of thoUnited Statesnds of dollars worth of education. An Heating & A/C tech does not have to invest that much money in their education, in addition to they can wind up making a comfortable living. When Homer told myself and others how much he was making when he first started as an Heating & A/C tech I was blown away! Heating & A/C workers have certified skills, which makes them absolutely overpriced to general companys, and even separate from a steady supervisor an Heating & A/C tech can make amazing money just doing freelance jobs for other companies. Home has made myself and others reevaluate everything I thought I knew about the Heating & A/C industry as a career path.
