A mechanical contractor in D.C. So HVAC/Sheet Metal, Plumbing, and Electric construction work. It's just 80+ hours because my dad does't hire managers like a sane person would -- 5 in the office for 60 in the field. I guess if I could find good managers I wouldn't have to work so much but construction doesn't exactly draw the best and brightest anymore and it would cut into the $.
But anyway, I'd say do what you think will make you the happiest (which very well might not be law).
