Oh in not too worried about it. Per say. Just a blow to economy and some were just getting by beforehand. It's embarrassing for the country as a whole that have cry babies throwing hissy fits, the same ones we entrusted to lead us.
I always thought the electrical trade was a construction trade - where you're always 'unemployed' the moment you finish a job. You get to wait for the next customer to call. Sparkys often hop back and forth between contractors, following the work- which is where the union hall comes in.
This idea of spending a career with one employer, predictable paychecks, full 'benefits,' and special retirement privileges is a type of work most tradesmen can't even imagine.
Starting at the bottom? Heck, when I was raised, the "government" is who hired you if no one else would. Government work hasn't been the employer of last resort for decades now.

I'm am. Thanx. My job is rather unique given my area of coverage where i wore several hats. I stay up with trades and worked with many of them in various projects. Although I had a desk, I was no desk jockey. I have the scars and caluses to prove it. It was the means to take care of my kids in a tough economy. Being vested makes it hard to just walk away. With my time with them, I have been very fourtuntate to learn and to do things I would not have the opportunity in the private sector.
I'm not setting on my thumbs waiting for this mess to be over. No telling what's on the other side. Maybe it's a opportunity for me to try new things. Time will tell
