    It veries from area to area. For instance, the northern states pay more then the southern states (mainly due to unions) You need to narrow down your area.

    Engineers...

    Make more money for using your brain, and it's something that won't wear out as quickly as your knees. Plus you don't have to deal with cranky, oblivious customers every day.

    In the HVAC industry, a typical Mech (or Elec) Engineer may start out at 35-40k depending on grades, focus, school attended, etc.

    look at the dept of labor they will give you some figures. I would think that you would want to get these figures from one place since wages vary so much from different regions.

    http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos112.htm

    that is the site for engineering techs. About halfway down you will find a earnings section.

    search for the other trades from here.

    of course you could use the salary wizard at salary.com but the dept of labor would probably look better.
