They are right on the location,demand an experience you have. Arround here, I see 27 to 35 an hour + beni`s. Oregons licencing and apprenticeship programs are tough here. Min work required as an apprentice is 8000 hours devided between commercial,industrial,communications & residential. 4 to 5 years schooling before you are eligable to take journeymans exam.The exams are not easy. 8000 hours more to take supervisors licence.
Loc: New Jersey (South Jersey)
In New Jersey, what would you say a expericened person (non-Licensed) who runs a crew of himself and a helper should be making, this person is able to do all aspects of electrical construction with out supervision.
An experienced electrician,non licenced,with a helper in Oregon wouldnt be worth a dime,because he would not be legal to do work here. Its that way with most trades here. I am a firm believer in apprenticeships & licensing .
