There are some good answers already to your question but I wanted to add the Union labor aspect. I took a brief look into your area and it seems the Carpenter Union is Local 59. If you were to decide to go into the union as a Carpenter they can average a higher wage. The union is not for everyone but they usually have great benefits and a lot of different options as a Carpenter.
I suggest you take a look at the local union and there should be good information starting with apprenticeship programs.
Hope this helps.
