    $137.50 plus fully paid benefits, fully vested and matched 401k in 1 year, and 2 weeks vacation to start

    really though, you will get what the market area supports. no one here can tell you what you can expect.

    It depends on the area. What I make in CA is different from my brother in law in MN. It varies by area.

    4 years experience after being licensed or 4th year apprentice? Up here in Toronto, 4th year apprentice is around $30/hr. Being a licensed mechanic here gets $45/hr. But as the guys said, it all varies depending on your area.

    That's $38 and change in US
    Here in Kentucky, a well seasoned experienced Journeyman tech can make 30-40 per hour in a state with a median yearly income of only $41,000. That rate does not factor in benefits. Of course less experienced technicians can make considerably less. I think you are worth what you put into it in this trade. There seems to be a shortage of experienced techs and the experienced techs are getting older.

    I had the wrong information

    Our hourly is actually $51 when u add our vacation pay.

    We also get $7.50/hr retirement on top of that.

    So wage is about $46us/hr and 6.75us/hr retirement.

    Yes you go somewere else and I'm sure the figures can go up, but living expenses go up too. It's pretty cheap living here. Comparatively.

    An average(median) house is about an 10 years Tech net wage, in NZ
    As hourly rate does not mean a great deal, it is what you can get for an hours work.
