    When you get the job you'll be able to not just smoke it but cultivate it as well!

    I'll be cutting down trees contracted to Tennessee's Electric Power Board.

    Cutting down trees, brush, and throwing it into wood chippers for $12.22 an hour for my first 3 months

    It's a good job dude, probably some tough hours that will take some getting used to, but worth it.

    In this country we are so fucking regulated you wouldn't even get a job on the team without a chainsaw ticket and safety certificates. If you have to scale the trees to cut them down you also need a ticket for that. It's not a bad thing because it stops dodgy pricks buying a chainsaw and lopping the shit out of everything but it does increase the cost to get such tradesmen to do their job.

    Thats fucking insane, but I understand why.
    I'm tired of the food industry man. It's time to get a real job and get a new experience. After this for a while I could get the ability to cut down trees for people and make money on the side like that as well.

    Is $12 per hour a good wage in the states? Seems pretty low.

    It's not like a chainsaw cert is hard to get, you just have to prove you can listen and repeat the steps the instructor does, in some ways it's really just a formality that proves you are serious about getting the job, it's only got a small amount of 'safety' and 'safe use' in the training. The certification to be the guy in charge is a bit harder because you have to prove you know how to drop a 100 foot tree safely in varying conditions and terrain. Where I grew up such things were just second nature. My neighbours kid got his first chainsaw when he was 3, sans chain and fuel, (was a prize from his old man's wood chopping comps). I wouldn't say we need such certs to remain safe in the bush but they probably do help, although I have to say the bit of paper has never stopped us from doing something silly and nearly killing ourselves :)

    Spending all day in the sun, especially if you're not used to it at first, is definitely pretty bad. Where do you work? Tradie?
