How much is it worth to you to not get a urine and feces slurry sprayed in your face?

So glad people are starting to wise up to the engineering meme. Almost every single trade makes more than engineers.
>>
>>10641268
Is that really what happens?
>>
>>10641257
What does "t." Mean?
>>
>>10641368
Like "yours truly" some kind of french junk.
>>
>>10641368
It denotes “signed by _”
>>
>>10641375
Finnish.
>>
>>10641368
Finnish abbreviation for yours truly/love used to sign a letter. It originated on Ylilauta as a meme.

>"youre shit is my bread and butter"
t. some plumber I worked with
anyway if they're not working with sewage pipes they're soldering toxic shit for new home construction
>>
>>10641508
At least it involves moving their body. I can feel my consciousness slowly dissipating out of existence while sitting on chairs for so long.
>>
>>10641508
Just don’t get it in your mouth/any holes and you’re good.
>>
>>10641334
Not every day but often enough that you should be ok with it happening.
>>
>>10641257
>a plumber
Anon if your shitter is fucked, and there's one guy you can call to fix it, do you think they're going to let you go without paying through the nose?

gotta laugh at dudes who work 70-80 hours a week minimum spraying themselves with shit just so they can say "DUHRRR ME MAK MONEYZ 2"

Imagine being this retarded

Why do you lie?
>>
>>10642204
Not accurate. They count “management” positions (which can be obtained without engineering) as engineering.
>>
>>10641271
Engineers are the ones who start businesses and become rich
>>
>>10642007
You'd be hard pressed to find many trades who only work 40 hours a week.
>>
>>10642209
> They count “management” positions (which can be obtained without engineering)
> (which can be obtained without engineering)
By nepotism in a small company, sure. In any other case, no; there is no shortage of gifted engineers with papers to prove it willing to work as managers in companies that require technical expertise.
>>
>>10642007
You don’t clear big money without overtime in the trades.
>>
>>10643198
Speak for yourself. Several unions around here pay 40+ per hour with benefits if you’re a journeyman.

MechEs only make that much if you make it into management after grinding for 5-6 years (after your degree, of course)
>>
>>10642209
>>10643154

Nothing in the description says managers are included. Read “what mechanical engineers do”.

And even if they did, an entry level MechE might make less than tradie with 40 years experience
>>
>>10643253
>$85k
>big money

Nah m8, I know what big trade money looks like and you are definitely not getting there without OT.
>>
>>10643306
Yeah, the trades cap out at around 70-80k if you're a master/journeyman
>>
>>10643308
People who weld important metals can make up to 100k
>>
>>10641257
Do any tradesmen here ever decide to self-study relevant engineering to their trade and go into a hyper specialized position and make a shitton, all while laughing at the uni fags who got C averages in their engineering degrees, can't get a job, and pay student loans out the ass?
>>
>>10643827
they need a lot of certifications though and they hit a ceiling after a while if they dont open up their own business. Think engineering offers more in the long run.
>>
>>10643909
Everybody that doesn't open their own business hits a ceiling.
>>
>>10641271
comp sci is even more of a meme, just wait until every 3rd worlder has a computer...
>>
>>10642204
is that for employees or self-employed? because cut out the middle man and all that money is yours. why be a slave?
>>10643004
you can set your own schedule and work however much you want to.
>>
Engineering is about being better at the craft than the tradesman, not the money. They create the system, the tradesman is the bitch that has to fix it.
>>
Mech eng doodles lines and circles all day waste of life
>>
>>10641257
Depends on who you're working for. The highest payed tradies make more than the average engineer. But the average engineer makes more than the average tradie. I'm in the trades and make a decent wage with OT, but I'm still going to school to be an EE. Less about the money though, I just want to know more.
>>
>>10645072
I think you mean programming
>>
>>10641368
terveiset, it's finnish for "regards"
>>
>>10643909
>complains that trades need certifications
>thinks that he will have it better in engineering
Holy shit kiddo you have another thing coming lmao
>>
>>10645332
>Less about the money though, I just want to know more.

Definitely going to make it bro, that's the proper attitude to have. More recent HS grads should consider working for a year or two before going to university in order develop a good work ethic.
>>
>>10641271
>in my country CS counts legaly as engineering
i'm confused.

Absolutely delusional.

>tfw mech eng in UK

why do we make half as much as Americans bros?
>>
>>10647396
Engineering has some of the lowest capital start up costs you can get. It’s literally just excel and some CAD software.
>>
>>10643838
I'm doing that right now. SCADA technician
>>
>>10647794
Come to the states and work for John Deere.
>>
>>10649210
I have no words. You are absolutely retarded.

t. engineer
>>
>>10649290
You are a shitty, uncreative Engineer then. I do freelance off of craigslist and upwork all the time. It’s bullshit easy mode stuff too, cooling load calcs and plumbing pressure drop calcs lol.
>>
all the senior engineers in every office i've worked sat around all day on youtube, amazon or news sites. that's mep though, the lowest of the low of engineering.
