    I'm an Ironworker welder myself. The boiler makers have some structural steel to be welder as well but not near as much structural work as the ironworkers.
    Im starting an apprenticeship with boilermakers union at the end of the year and I got offer to get sponsor by a contractor as an ironworker for the union

    If it doesn't matter to you, I would choose the trade that will offer the most work in your area. If weather conditions are important one maybe better then the other.
    Avoid them both and find a women with money !
