Carpenter Apprentice Salary

Carpenter Apprentices in the United States are largely men, earning an average of $14.50 per hour. Location is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by career length. Unfortunately, some people in this line of work are without benefits — a little over a half lack coverage. On the flip side, just over two-fifths have medical insurance and just under one in three receive dental plans. Job satisfaction is reported as high by the vast majority of workers.
