What is the Pros and Cons of becoming a painter? Also what benefits would be available?
Someone who would like to one day be working for painters union. #painters-union #painting #trade-work #trade-jobs #trade
If you can find a union and become a member then that would likely increase the pay you could command. Check in your area for unions and what benefits they offer. Some may help with apprenticeships.
But if you would like to work with indie companies or museums then that's a different story.
Working for 'corporate' jobs as a painter can restrain your creative abilities to meet the expectations and needs of what the employer wants from you and your coworkers. While it does provide long term benefits such as health insurance, and a steady income, most of these companies typically higher through contract or freelance basis (basically they only higher you when they need you and let you go when they're done).
Hope this helps!
