Brandon’s Answer

That usually depends on how much you work and the type of job that you have. You would need to talk to your employer or find a job that has the hours and the conditions that you are looking for in order for you to have the free time to do other activities. This is the type of thing that you would need to expect from every job, not only a electrician. If you want to make more money, you would need to spend more time working. If you want to have the free time to go see family or do other activities, then you would want to have less hours working. It is a give and take, a type of balance that one needs in their life.

Leo’s Answer

In any job you do, you should be able to put limits to how much you work so that you can have a life. This is called Life/Work Balance. In most jobs you'll be expected to work 8 hours each day. Some jobs may pay you extra if you work more than that. In some cases, there will be periods of time where you will be expected to work overtime because a project needs to be completed. You should always ask a potential employer how they allow their employees to balance their life and their work, how often you'll be expected to work overtime (and if they will pay you extra) so that you can make an informed decision.

In this particular case (becoming an electrician), it sounds like you may also have the option of being your own boss too. In that case, you'll decide how much work you want to do each day.

You plan to work in the United States? Then slavery has been forbidden for quite a while now. That said, any employer would love to have you work 24/7 if that would be possible.
Like the other said, you will have to find a company and position that fits your work/life balance. You typically discuss this during the interview when negotiating your contract.
