Hello Gavin:

Plumbers: The median annual wage for plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters was $53,910 in May 2018. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $32,100, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $93,700.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Gavin,

The pay for plumbers and electricians is similar and both pay pretty well. I'd encourage you to pick the profession that you're more interested in and/or that you'd be better at.

Good luck!
