I am hoping for some feedback on what is perceived as a fair wage for and apprentice and how they are to log their time.
For a second year(2 years school and equivelant to 1 1/2 years in hours) apprentice what would the range of wages be in your opinions?
How would an apprentice usually charge their hours?
Is it standard that only time on a job be paid for?
I realize some will be more competant than others and thus there will be a variance.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
This is the new member welcome and intro area. Tell us about yourself and get your post count up to 15. Then apply for pro.
Your question would be better asked in the pro section.
There should be an agreement between your local and the contractors as to the starting pay scale and the scheduled increases throughout the 5 year apprenticeship.
As for charging your hours, I'm assuming you mean how much time to put towards each call. It's sort of a gray area but I generally start the clock when I'm leaving one job to go to the next, in other words- put travel time on the job you are heading to.
depends on your area and apprenticeship commitee (union or merit shop) and several other factors, with some more info I can tell you exactly what your scale is and the industry average in your area
