Too many variable to answer this. What's your area of specialty? Resi? Commercial? If you're a foreman with a non-union company doing new construction commerical, you could easily be in the $40's. Residential you'd be in the mid to high 20's, low 30's if you find a good contractor and can actually produce quality work without a lot of mistakes.

Having all those licenses doesn't mean diddly squat in my eyes. A big contractor will like it because it means they can send you all over. But if you have them and you can't wire a 3-way without messing it up, they don't mean a thing.

thanks mtw, we do what i would call light commercial. We do work at communication sites all over new england. I am a leader and have 1 guy work under me. I handle my own jobs with minimal supervision and get sent all over the place . I have been doing jobs for the same customer for the past 3 years and i am the only guy in my company who does work for this one customer , whenever they call i respond and do whatever is necessary to keep them happy. I know there are guys in the company who make about 3-5 $ more than me but have been in the company for 10 years longer.
