Hi I'm currently in my first year as a apprenticeship electrician has been going good apart from the salary part Haha, I have started working on the side to earn extra money especially in the first year .
I'm looking for any ideas you think is worth doing on the side I'm making just over €500 a week at the moment coming out with just under 300 in my apprenticeship and the rest on my side job . Hoping to add another €100 a week if I can which will give me a good wage for an apprentice.

Was milking cows at the weekends since January after the high rate of tax, USC and PRSI i was losing 52% and was getting €120 for my weekends work, €60/day. Not worth it in my opinion and i am putting a stop to it in the coming weeks. Nearly onto my 2nd yesr now thankfully.

Well done op
Your priorities are in the right mind.
First year is always the hardest but it will get better as each year passes plus the money is pretty good once you become fully qualified
Hell it's even a livable wage once you hit year 3(sort of) depends on many factors though.
Do some deliveries on the weekend maybe or some part time warehouse work. Just try not to overwork yourself or you will burn out which will effect your motivation to do your apprecticship work which is obviously way more important right now.
Best of luck op
