    My soon to be husband does commercial Hvac in the metro-Denver area. He is a licienced journeyman for the past 3 yrs, and completed his 5 yr apprenticeship previous to that, for a total of 8yrs experience. What is the typical hourly pay range he should be recieving? thanks

    Im not sure about denver, but here in the detroit area he could expect to make 17-25/hr. maybe more depending on what outfit he works for. This does not include benefits such as commissions, company vehicle, tool allowance, health care, 401k, bonuses, etc. when you put it all together, its a pretty good package. Good luck! I would not mind living in denver. I heard that you just got 14 inches of snow.

    take a look at the 638 rates in NYC on the Metal Trades section,that would be service and install of the HVAC equipment http://www.steamfitters.com this will give him a basic grouping on rates.Journeymen in this area make their own deals at the interview with the union shop for overscale...you either come in high $$$$ or you will never make it up when the union raises are renewed every 3 years here.

    salary.com is coming in about 47K. Don't know if this applies to union extortionists.

    I am assuming he is union based on the apprenticeship comment. We union "extortionists" as incontrol refered to us, do generally make a little more than the non-union. I would expect his scale to be between $22/hr and $30/hr depending on the cost of living in your area and the current work situation. I live in Nashville, TN and our scale is split.........journeyman rate is $25.06/hr while senior journeyman rate is $27.66/hr. $47K a year is probably in line for the non-union sector around here. I have several friends who work non-union and are making anywhere from $22/hr. to $26/hr. Hope this helps.

    You all should remember if it was not for us union extortionist, there would be no such thing as benifits, or decent hourly wages.

    Incontrol, you are so out of touch. Your base salary is directly based upon the "extortionists" rate of pay.
    How is this for thought. If you are making too much money, please give your company a refund.
    If you are a contractor then your hourly rate should be at least 50% per hour less than the "extortionists". Would'nt you say?
