What's a good trade to learn for a 2nd job? Something where I can make around $13-$15+ an hour, part-time on nights and weekends?

I found bouncing to be the easiest money (more than what U mentioned per hour) but of course U will need to get a licence, then U can boucne or security maybe ?
Perhaps bartending/club work ?

These can usually be done cash as well so U don't get taxed, at some places.

Ummm I guess it really depends on what U want to do. Wanna throw out some suggestions ?

Well, I was thinking about possibly the A+ certification and fixing computers at a store or something part-time.

Or maybe dental hygienist, or paramedic.

I don't know. The job market seems to be getting worst every year. I'd like to have a 2nd trade just to fall back on as well.

Being a bouncer doesn't sound so bad. I'd like something with more job security though. Seems like there aren't many places that really would need a bouncer.

Ok cool, yeah needed a hint of what direction you wanna go in lol

Well yes but bouncers are needed everywhere people drink really so there are plenty of those jobs here and I got into it because of the demand for them (cause let's face it most bouncers these days are undesirables lol)
I got into it because yeah the job market sucks these days and well like I said it's easy, good money.


But not really a job U wanna have to fall back on as U mentioned. U can't really go wrong with computers
And if the dental or paramedic work is something U would like to do why not get that ball rolling ? That is definitely something that would be great to have under your belt

Try being a carpeter or something in that kind of field. I own a cabinet store & am always looking for GOOD reliable carpenters for instalations. The only good one I know has his full time job working as a carpenter & then also does side jobs on nights & weekends & averages about $500 a job & he normally finishes his job for that cost in a day or sometimes less. $500 cash isnt bad for blowing 4-6 hours on a Saturday.

Or you could do H&R block. Just pass the exams and when you get certified you can make good money for filling out other people's tax returns.

jonsun has got the right Idea.
Construction trades are the way to go if you are not afraid to get your hands dirty!

I read a book on how to lay natural stone [stonemason] built a BBQ and small wall, contacted a few contractors with my pictures and now I have to turn work away. Average pay $25 an hr and UP.

This is not my main gig but this skill sure comes in handy when times are slow!

Good Luck!!

Home Depot, driving a fork lift. Easily make 13+ per hour.

I dont work there, but I know this as fact.
