Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $35K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $41K. Carpenters with Project Management skills with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $44K. Old hands boasting more than twenty years of relevant experience report pay that is more or less commensurate with that extensive experience; average earnings for this group come out to approximately $50K.
