Plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters have some of the most in-demand jobs in the country today. Job opportunities for these trades are expected to rise through the 2020s at a rate of around 4% a year, mainly driven by new construction and the need to keep up older systems in residential and commercial structures.
Workers in these fields have a wide range of choice in where to work, the working environment they operate in, and the rates they can charge for specialty applications. New plumbers generally learn the trade with a lot of support from professional groups, while experienced plumbers can work as independent contractors with minimal upfront costs and overhead. Many of the most lucrative jobs for plumbers involve running a small business with little more than tools and a truck, though many of these operations eventually expand into franchises with dozens or hundreds of employees in multiple states.CONTINUE READING
