>when a plumber makes more than a MechE t. Engineer
>>10641257How much is it worth to you to not get a urine and feces slurry sprayed in your face?
>>10641257So glad people are starting to wise up to the engineering meme. Almost every single trade makes more than engineers.
>>10641268Is that really what happens?
>>10641257What does "t." Mean?
>>10641368Like "yours truly" some kind of french junk.
>>10641368It denotes “signed by _”
>>10641368Finnish abbreviation for yours truly/love used to sign a letter. It originated on Ylilauta as a meme.
>>10641334>"youre shit is my bread and butter"t. some plumber I worked withanyway if they're not working with sewage pipes they're soldering toxic shit for new home construction
>>10641508At least it involves moving their body. I can feel my consciousness slowly dissipating out of existence while sitting on chairs for so long.
>>10641508Just don’t get it in your mouth/any holes and you’re good.
>>10641334Not every day but often enough that you should be ok with it happening.
>>10641257>a plumberAnon 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"
>>10641996>70-80 hours a weekImagine being this retarded
>>10641257>MechE: 87,370$>Plumber: 53,910$https://www.bls.gov/ooh/architecture-and-engineering/mobile/mechanical-engineers.htmWhy do you lie?
>>10642204Not accurate. They count “management” positions (which can be obtained without engineering) as engineering.
>>10641271Engineers are the ones who start businesses and become rich
>>10642007You'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.
>>10642007You don’t clear big money without overtime in the trades.
>>10643198Speak 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>>10643154Nothing 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 moneyNah m8, I know what big trade money looks like and you are definitely not getting there without OT.
>>10643306Yeah, the trades cap out at around 70-80k if you're a master/journeyman
>>10643308People who weld important metals can make up to 100k
>>10641257Do 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?
>>10643827they 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.
>>10643909Everybody that doesn't open their own business hits a ceiling.
>>10641271comp sci is even more of a meme, just wait until every 3rd worlder has a computer...
>>10642204is that for employees or self-employed? because cut out the middle man and all that money is yours. why be a slave?>>10643004you 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
>>10641257Depends 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.
>>10645072I think you mean programming
>>10641368terveiset, it's finnish for "regards"
>>10643909>complains that trades need certifications>thinks that he will have it better in engineeringHoly 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 engineeringi'm confused.
>>10643253>not working your own businessKEK
>>10647327>bro, just buy your own hundred million dollar factory lmao XXXDDDAbsolutely delusional.
>tfw mech eng in UKwhy do we make half as much as Americans bros?
>>10647396Engineering has some of the lowest capital start up costs you can get. It’s literally just excel and some CAD software.
>>10643838I'm doing that right now. SCADA technician
>>10647794Come to the states and work for John Deere.
>>10649210I have no words. You are absolutely retarded.t. engineer
>>10649290You 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.
