According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in May 2018 carpenters had median hourly earnings of $22.40. The average worker making this wage and working full time for the year would have an income of approximately $46,590. The lowest paid 10 percent of carpenters made less thanĀ $28,860 per year, and the highest paid 10 percent made more thanĀ $82,750 annually.
