I'd try the US Deparment of Labor, they should be able to tell you what the prevailing wage rate is, probably on a county by county basis.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

What are you looking for? What to pay someone or how much you should be making?

Pay rates?
It all depends on location and demand.

If the economy is good then pay rates will of course be higher. If it isin't very good, then they will be lower.

Prevailing wages differ greatly across the country. They are very low down south and are pretty decent up north. But unless you are in a union this means very little to you.

I can say that the "average" pay rate in my area is whatever someone will work for. It totally depends upon what you can work out with the employer, so, it depends on what you are worth to him.

Try this:

It gives a breakdown by state, for federally funded projects.

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.

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 .
