If you’re an electrician who lives in the South, chances are you may not be pulling in the same pay as your colleagues living in other parts of the United States. Based on the latest research available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (Occupational Employment and Wages Study from May 2015), the “Tar Heel State” pays electricians less than any other state in the nation. Unlike Alaska (the highest-paying state for electricians with an average of $38.18 per hour), North Carolina and several other southern states fall at the low end of the pay spectrum. (Note: Puerto Rico was actually the lowest-paying location for electricians at an average $12.69 per hour and $26,390 annual average salary, but it’s technically a U.S. territory — not a state.) Let’s take a look at the rankings in descending order. Here are the full articles from EC&M. http://ecmweb.com/contractor/5-worst-paying-states-electricians-2015#slide-0-field_images-138151
