No, it is not. There is no such thing as a non-immigration working visa for the US.
You cannot enter the US to work without obtaining the proper visa first, while in the
UK. A US company must be willing to sponsor you and do what's necessary to get this
visa for you (known as H-1B) if you cannot get to the US via family-based
immigration.

An H-1B usually requires a university degree or 12 years experience with no degree.
As I understand it, this is mainly used for high tech jobs but not always. I would
think it extremely difficult for a plumber to get this.

Check the immigration pages at www.usembassy.org.uk

Or a combination of both, i.e. a four year degree or three years experience for each
year you do not have.

Another profession H-1B is widely used for is the medical profession.

Most definitely.
