The price you should expect will vary wildly from area to area and state to state. I live an hour south of St Louis and here they can get anywhere from $9 to $11 per hour entry level. In St Louis it's more like $13 to $15 from what I've been told. California I understand is way more as is Dallas and Chicago but other's can be more specific than I can.
Good luck and welcome to the trade.
