    I think it is all a matter of how you present yourself. If you want to appear dirty, then you will be, but if you are meticulous in your appearance and keeping yourself clean then no one will regard you as a "dirty shit", but as a qualified tradesman.

    Plumbing

    Most plumbers in the union start out doing new construction. Not all plumbers clean out stuck toilets. Plumbing involves hot and cold copper water lines, gas lines, roof drains and most airconditioning drain lines. It's a great trade with great benni's; depending on what company you work for. There is a lot of money in service work, but it is dirty, and most of the money goes to the contractor not the plumber.
