I started a job with an Electrician as an apprentice a few months ago. I'm 19 and finished college last summer. The man I'm working for is cutting corners, bodges stuff in and doesn't seem to care that he could be putting peoples lives and homes at risk. When I've questioned him on stuff that I think is wrong, he just fobs me off and says that I need to learn and no one ever strictly follows the regulations anyway. I'm scared if something goes wrong, I'll get the blame too.
I want to find someone else to work for but I'm worried he'll make it difficult for me? What can I do?
