According to BakersGas.com, the average salary for welders is $36,720 per year. If you really want to make the big bucks, underwater welders can make upwards of $56,000 per year! Most welders work about 40 hours a week, however if you're really good, your manager will want you to stay later - up to 70 hours a week - the more you work, the more you get paid! At the end of the day money is cool, but what's most important is that you're happy. I wish you the best of luck!
