    Average tech = average money. Above average tech = above average money...catch my drift?

    The reason I ask is because I went to a speil today on the local Pipe Fitters union, they pay $69,040 (which is $42,300 in actuall wages, and $26,740 in fringe benefits) first year of the apprentiship, and Journey men are getting paid $99,630 ($66,000 in actuall wages and $31,980 in fringe benefits). I was just trying to get a feel for what is out there.

    A good technician is going to make a good amount of money. Someone you can send to a call and know they are going to fix it correctly with no call back (considering the equiptment is decent) is extremely valuable. It is hard to give you a figure because none of us know your background. For the above average worker with no overtime $45-52k a year.

    You must be talking commercial. For a non union shop in the Twin Cities after five years you should have your comp. cards and be making $28-$29 an hour or more.
