How Much Can You Make in a Skilled Trades Career?

Looking for a lucrative career? Back in your parents’ day, everyone thought going to a four-year college was the way to make good money. They thought that workers in the skilled trades like plumbers and HVAC technicians were just scraping by.

But that’s not true at all. In fact, according to Indeed, the average plumber is making $22.73 per hour, and the average HVAC tech is making $25.41 per hour. The reality is that you can get a career in the skilled trades off the ground in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost of a four-year degree, and snag an entry-level position for $40,000 to start.
