Right now I'm working at UPS part time but double shift(10pm-9am); when I'm not working a double(3am-9am) I just do handyman-type jobs during the day, or just sleep. Anyways, I'm only getting $10/hr right now(raise this January), but staying because of benefits and discounts. Now if I continue to stay and do driver, I can make 65k a year or more with CDL(paycheck every week too). It's not something I want to do, but hey, thats more money than some teachers . What I really want to do is automotive technician, but everybody I know don't make that much. I want to go back to school(community college, or UTI), but I don't know what I want to take. Which type of career pays the most? Mind you, I prefer working with my hands, but don't mind working in a office. I was thinking taking course on machining. Anyone have any idea on how much automotive technicians and machinists make a year?
