Hi Orette!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 the median pay for an electrician was $55,190 per year or $26.53 per hour. Employment of electricians is projected to grow 9 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Increases in construction spending and growing demand for alternative energy sources will drive demand for electricians. Electricians who can perform many different tasks should have the best job opportunities.
