Hello Luis:

In addition to Mr. Emmons response I'd like to share with you a link on the various types of welding positions on ZipRecruiter. You could look at the type of job and compare the salary.


Best of Luck!

You will need to be more specific.  Welding is a broad category.  Underwater pipe welding versus ship or pipe welders... the salaries will vary. 

The American Welding Society has a page that cites welding salaries by state/community.  It is a few years old at this point, but it should give you an idea of the range. Broadly, the answer is "about $30 an hour"... and it appears the number of jobs is growing, especially if you are willing to move to follow the work.
