Skilled craft professionals are earning higher and higher salaries, according to NCCER’s 2022 Construction Craft Salary Survey. Among the 135 companies, 41 construction positions and 337,000 employees reviewed in the survey, annual salaries averaged from $49,920 to $98,965. Project supervisors and managers topped the list, earning from $90,200 to $98,900.

Positions earning more than $65,000 include HVAC technician, electrician, pipefitter, rigger, site safety technician, mobile crane operator and plumber. The positions with the most significant pay increases are powerline worker (up 25%) and plumber (up 23%). 

NCCER notes that many craft professionals receive additional incentives, so take-home pay is typically greater than what’s reflected in the survey, which doesn’t include overtime, per diem, bonuses, etc.
