trades don’t just mean a construction laborer. Become an electrician , work your way up to getting into the utility companies ( natgrid, eversource etc). Hvac for a state university. plumbing in business for yourself. you talk lay offs,... rather Collect unemployment than hire a lawyer to defend my actions in A justifiable use of force incident.For you guys recommending construction jobs.
Have any of you actually worked in the trades? I'm not talking here and there, but as your full time occupation. I seriously doubt you would be telling members on here to choose the trades over Law Enforcement if you had.
Not everyone gets in the union, and even if you do, they get laid off pretty frequently. Think about 2009-2013 when the economy tanked.
