equal pay for equal work
Experience not necessary. But strong work ethic is.
Women in the Electrical Trade
There is no better time than now for women to get involved in the electrical trade.
With a job as an IBEW electrical worker, equal pay for equal work is not just a promise, it is a guarantee. Women receive the same pay as men for performing the same job, removing any gender pay stereotypes that may have been an issue in the past.
Former military service members make great electrical workers. Many of the skills, habits, and discipline learned in the military translate to the electrical trade. Working as an electrician requires teamwork, close attention to detail, the ability to see a task through to completion, and being able to work independently or in a group. All of these traits go hand-in-hand with those who have military experience.
High School Graduates
After high school, most students choose to either attend college or get a job. What if you could choose both?
As YJATC apprentice you can have the best of both worlds – earning a paycheck and work experience by day and continuing their education in the classroom a few nights a week.
And here is a bonus – apprentices earn college credits!
