Robert’s Answer

Cody,

You can Google jobs such as laborer, apprentice and for future knowledge, supervisor, team leader, construction foreman, site supervisor, project manager etc. Different fields also have different pay grades. Pull up some job boards with these job titles and see what they are offering as well. Don't forget that the benefits also add to you overall salary. I believe starting monthly pay is a little better than the average starting pay in the U.S. so around $3000.

I hope this helps!

Darin’s Answer

Monthly income in construction related trades varies widely based upon skill set and experience. At the low end non-union laborers might only gross $2,000-2,500 per month. Union plumbers, electricians and other skilled trades probably gross $6,000-9,000 per month or more. Construction superintendents with many years of experience might earn $10,000 to $20,000 per month or more depending on size and type of project, location and other factors. I work in a related field as a structural building inspector. I have many years of experience which obviously affects compensation and I work in an area of the country where construction is booming so I work a lot of overtime but generally earn $8,000 to $10,000 per month with the variation due to changes in the amount of overtime available.

For anyone considering working in the trades I would recommend trade school over college courses and/or apprenticeship programs to develop a skill set that
