...construction workers, plumbers....they're making $12-$19 an hour.
If your only making in that range as a construction worker you probably screwed up big time or are a high schooler / college student working in the summer. I made $17 swinging a hammer in the summer in the late 90s working construction in the summer when I was in college. One of my neighbors is a plumber and is self employed and pulls in $50/hr and the neighbor across the street is semi-retired general contractor so he only takes jobs he wants and make $45/hr. Skilled hard labor pays quite well, just ask my other neighbor who is a master mechanic who makes more than his wife who is in IT.
1 1 was a race-horse, 2 2 was 1 2. When 1 1 1 1 race, 2 2 1 1 2.
