I am thinking of moving from the Boston area down to Tampa within the next couple years and was wondering if anybody knew what electricians were getting paid down there. Like what would a 3rd or 4th year apprentice or Licensed guy be looking at for a rate down there? Any help would be great thanks.

You will make less no doubt, the costs down there will be a little less also.

Check out the link I provide it will give you some ideas.

You are going to pay a lot of money for "sunshine". When you look at housing costs I am not sure living is any cheaper.
You do save on snow tires and winter coats tho.
