Well said! I am amazed as well that a state like CA with all its "progressive thinking" doesnt require electricians to be licensed!!! And from what I've heard, it will be years before the new licensing requirements go into effect.
Yeah, that sounds about right. I remember going into a house with no wiring one day and when I came back the next day to snap some photos, the wiring was almost done!!! I guess with that pay, no supervision, and no license, this is what you get! I hope that licensing eliminates these "elecktrishins," too. I know it wont solve the problem, but it should make it better.
I couldnt believe it when I opened that panel and saw all the 15 amp breakers labelled "lighting"!
