2022.01.23 00:19 donkey_mouth Soliciting Advice
I recently have changed careers from handyman into electrician apprenticeship. So far, its been a nightmare. I joined the local union and there are some things that are seriously worrying me. I'm hoping to get some good advice and direction.
First, when I applied and passed the entrance exam (8/9) and interviewed, I was told that I would start work no earlier than September, but that because of my interview score (88.812), I wasn't picked for the A program apprentices. Then, I was told that I had made the cut and would begin work in January. Then, I was told that things had changed and I needed to re interview in January. When I submitted my request to re-interview, I was told it would now be February. After that, I was spontaneously offered a position starting in December. Is the union typically this disorganized, unreliable, and cryptic?
Secondly, when I joined up, I was told that my meals were going to be paid for. When I got to the job location, I was told that "that isn't accurate." I was given an alternative explanation. When I called the hall, I was told that "oh, so and so said that because that's a bonus that used to be provided, but is no longer offered. And, the contractor is not under any contractual obligation to provide meals." My thought is, "why is it that the person describing this to me knows this information, but the person who told me didn't?" Has anyone else been a victim of predatory recruiting? Or, in anyone's personal experience, has the union promised such and such to get people to work, and then reneged on the promise?
Third, I've been employed for about 3 weeks now, and for the majority of the time, Ive been remodeling the company owners basement. Drywall, painting, trim, etc. Because we are currently working in a remote location where logistically it is extremely difficult to get material in or out, I can only imagine the cost of this type of labor. I feel very much like I am being taken advantage of. As an apprentice I'm making $15.75 an hour, but the current scope and capacity of work I am preforming I've bid out at $40/hr+. Is this normal? He keeps insisting that he "needs me out in the field", but when the scope of work keeps increasing and I tell him your looking at another 2-4 weeks, he says, "ok." When I told him, "look, you need to get a professional drywall and paint crew in here", he said "no, that's ok, I've got you guys." It just seems to me he's trying to either bill us out at union rates, or use us to mitigate his labor costs by paying us as apprentices and using us as finishers. I'm not getting the electrical training that I signed up for.
Fourth, I am concerned about the career trajectory of the CW/CE program. I've already been warned about this route that we are treated like scabs and taken advantage of. It seems that warning has materialized. Also, I see that it takes an additional 6000 hours to become a journeyman v. the A program. Additionally, i am not sure I am reading that correctly as I'm having trouble seeing where CE's actually become journeyman. From what I gather, CW/CE is a holding program that does NOT count toward A program hours.
Fifth, the school I have to attend is 342mi round trip from where I currently live. I don't get paid for the day, and I get a paltry $25 gas stipend to drive there. That means I'm paying approximately $80 in gas (might be more) and missing out on $125/day to drive up to this school every month. Without considering mileage on my vehicle or food, that's $2460/year I'm paying to attend once a month less the stipend. If I get accepted into the A program, it will amount to $448/month because I'll be getting paid $18/hr and I have to attend twice a month. That's a yearly cost of $5376. Over the course of my apprenticeship, it will account for $26,880 at this rate. Of course, that number is just going to go up because my rate of pay will increase costing me more and more each pay scale I'm traveling. Not to mention inflation and the volatile gas price. Through a State University, I can pay $250/course@5 courses/year@4 years for a total of $5000. So, I'm going to end up paying 500%+++ more over the course of five years for union schooling v. paying my own tuition at $250/course over 4 years. It just seems ridiculous to take union offered schooling when it is going to hang me out to dry. Has the union ever sat down and crunched these numbers and considered what toll its going to take on it's apprentices?
In light of all this, it seems it would be better for me to try and get hired on with another local electrician, pay my own classes, and test out at the normal 4 years v. going through the 5 year union program. Although, there is the insurance that I will get access to provided I work at least 135/hwk. And, the pension. But, in light of all the other expense, I'm wondering if it's worth it in the long run to apprentice with the union, or organize in after I'm a journeyman. I know I have blindspots, so can someone help me see what I'm over looking? Thanks!

2022.01.23 00:19 shadeybastard Neckseams are back
Ok so I’ve been modding on Xbox for years now and so far I’ve learned to keep proper load orders, deal with conflicts and keep everything up to date. After Anniversary edition patch 1.22 my characters fucking neck-seam returned. First I did a hard reset, nothing changed. Next I completely nuked my games save data and reinstalled everything, nothing changed. Finally I completely uninstalled the game, nuked the save data and did a hard reset, went through the hassle of reinstalling the game and mods fresh… STILL HAVE THE FUCKING NECK SEAM! I’m not using any conflicting mods either! I have CBBE and the Fair skin texture below it in my load order. No other beautification mods. I’m at my wits end and not sure what other fixes there are on Xbox. Any help would be much appreciated as I’ve been at this for weeks now.

2022.01.23 00:19 SuccubusBo Found out today we lost one of us
A friend of mine who I adored and admired passed away. He was the man who gave me confidence to finally getting my motorcycle license after 14 yrs of riding a 49cc scooter. He gave me all the confidence that I would past the permit test. Even more confidence that I would enjoy and pass the MSC. And, the man who was going to go shopping for a new bike with me (he used to work at a dealership) when Spring hits. He was going to make sure I got the right bike for me and not get taken advantage of as a woman shopping for a bike.
He was an amazing person. And I am going to miss his amazing smile, awesome personality, and all the great talks we had.
Ride in my man, ride on!

2022.01.23 00:19 humanweightedblanket Onion replacement options?
Hi all! I really hate the texture of onions, so normally I either leave them out or just put large slices into soup for flavor, or if I'm feeling ambitious, cut them up really tiny. I'm experimenting with a couple curry recipes that reasonably call for onions. Has anyone tried cooking the curry base with just onion slices and taking them out later, or do you think it's time to get ambitious? Thanks in advance for any feedback!
