James T. Hodgkinson was announced a few minutes ago as the alleged attacker on the Republican party baseball team early this morning. Hodgkinson has produced a large amount of information about his job, career, and salary, as well as his political affiliation.
So what was James T. Hodgkinson job and salary? Read on…
James T. Hodgkinson was identified as the shooter in Alexandria Virginia. He’s from Belleville, Illinois, where worked from home.
According to multiple reports, he worked for himself as a home inspector, although he seems to have stopped working in that business rather recently.
He was licensed to perform home inspections for decades, although not consistently. According to The Belleville News and his Facebook, he and a license in the late 1990s, as well as from 2003-2018. It is not clear if he lost the license, or if it just expired.
People holding home inspectors’ licenses earn $250-500 per inspection, generally. That’s over $100 per hour, although it can be inconsistent work. Hodgkinson appears to be a member of ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors.
As a home inspector, James T. Hodgkinson could have made anywhere between $50,000 to $100,000 or more, depending on how much work he booked, and the economic conditions. Although the home sales business has been especially strong lately, his area may not have experienced the boom as much as other areas.
James T. Hodgkinson performed pre-purchase as well as mold information. He had worked with construction and real estate businesses in the Illinois area, according to the Belleville News:
He used to be in construction or the building trades, and then he went into home inspections. He had been doing home inspections for several years,” she said.
There was nothing about Hodgkinson that would have pointed to Wednesday’s events.
“From a business standpoint, he did not seem like he is a radical — opinionated but not a radical,” Brennan said. “He wasn’t obnoxious, he wasn’t problematic. When he did home inspections for me he didn’t rile up the buyers or make ridiculous statements.
Hodgkinson had some run-ins with the law for his business, such as performing electrical work without a license; he also has a record for battery and motor vehicle incidents.
