Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Structural Steel Workers do not generally earn higher incomes from more experience in the field. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $37K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $44K. Structural Steel Workers bring in $46K after working for 10 to 20 years. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $47K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
