"Those who are engaged in decoration at home must be on guard against electricians stealing wires." Yesterday, Mr. Yang, the person in charge of an enterprise who has been doing Decoration Engineering in Nanjing for many years, told reporters, "at present, the trend of electricians stealing owners' wires is prevalent in the decoration industry. An electrician can generally earn more than 1000 yuan a month by selling wires alone." It was one of his relatives who worked as an electrician that prompted Mr. Yang to uncover the dark curtain of stealing wires, which could "earn" more than 1000 a month.

stealing wires can "earn" more than 1000 a month

it is one of his relatives who is an electrician who urges Mr. Yang to uncover this dark curtain. The relative brought some wires to sell to him from time to time. "At first, I didn't care. I thought it was from a friend. Later, after questioning, he admitted that these wires were stolen by helping the owner decorate." Mr. Yang said that he began to pay attention, and the result surprised him. "Most electricians take advantage of their work to steal the owner's wires, and then sell them to waste purchase stations or decoration companies, with a considerable monthly income." According to Mr. Yang, electricians steal wires in a simple way. During construction, when the owner is not paying attention or there is no one at home, put the whole roll of wires in a bag and take it out. Generally, wires for home decoration are mainly 1.5mm, 2.5mm and 4mm in diameter. A coil of wire is about 95 meters, which is small and easy to take away. If electricians want to steal more wires, they must ask the owner to buy more wires before construction. "Generally, there are 2 to 3 more rolls of actual consumption, which the owner can't think of at all. Even if they think of it, electricians always prevaricate on the grounds that there are many winding places or bends in the construction."

Mr. Yang said that the market price of a coil of wire ranged from 100 yuan to 250 yuan. After electricians steal the wires, they usually go to the construction unit or decoration company to sell them. If no one buys them, they go to the waste purchase station. "The price offered by the scrap purchase station is generally low, but due to the copper contained in the wires, the current copper price in the market is relatively high, and the lowest price per kilogram of wires is about 40 yuan. Those with large wire diameters are sold for more than 70 yuan per kilogram. An electrician can generally earn more than 1000 yuan a month by selling wires alone."

whoever comes to the waste recycling bin is welcome

"30 yuan a kilogram." Yesterday, the reporter and Mr. Yang came to Saishang road and saw a coil of wire with a diameter of 4mm in Mr. Yang's hand. The owner of a waste recycling station just doubled the purchase price. Mr. Yang pretended to be cheap and was ready to leave. At this time, the man quickly stopped it and increased the price by 30 yuan a kilogram. Seeing that Mr. Yang had to leave, the man was in a hurry: "how about 70 yuan a kilogram?"

the reporter and Mr. Yang came to another waste recycling station. A middle-aged man in a dark jacket looked briefly and said 70 yuan a kilogram. The reporter found that there were many broken wires, about hundreds of kilograms, piled in the courtyard without house number. Several workers are using wire peeling machine to peel the copper core wire inside the wire, and several other workers are binding and packaging the copper core wire. After Mr. Yang insisted on leaving on the grounds of cheapness, the man still followed, "this price is everywhere else."

the reporter and Mr. Yang went to several purchase stations and found that the purchase price was indeed the same. A man said that because the copper wire is wrapped in insulating material, "it takes a lot of labor to extract the copper wire inside", the purchase price is too high, and he will lose money. When the reporter claimed that these were "black goods", the man said it didn't matter, "no matter how much, we accept it all."

it is too difficult to prevent electrician theft

"electrician stealing is a very practical problem." Mr. Li, who just finished decorating the house, said, "when my house was renovated, I bought all the first-class copper core wires. According to the electrician's requirements, I bought more than 600 meters in total, and spent more than 1000 yuan. When the electrician finished his work, I went to see that there was no meter left! Obviously, it can't be so right, and the rest was obviously taken away. But he didn't admit it, and I couldn't help it. Now the price of copper raw materials has risen, and the wires are expensive, so he can earn a lot."

Mr. Li said that they stole a little at a time by using "ant moving". For example, when they go back today, they use a pocket and bring a few kilograms. When they come to work next time, they bring back a few kilograms. When the family is finished, they steal dozens of kilograms and sell them. "I don't mean to despise electricians. They are also very hard-working, but a large number of electricians steal materials seriously. They often steal wires and sell them at a low price in the waste market to earn a few small money, but it will bring great losses to our owners."

"because the crime is very hidden, it is particularly difficult to prevent such things." Mr. Li sighed, "we can't monitor electrician construction 24 hours a day."

Mr. Yang also believes that in order to completely eliminate electricians stealing wires, in addition to strengthening the prevention of the owner and giving the other party as little opportunity to steal as possible, it is more important for electricians to be self disciplined
