It's about $18-20/hour for apprentices and probably $25-$30+ for fully-fledged journeyman linemen. With OT (not hard to do with storms or being sent off on out-of-state storms) $100K+/year is pretty common.
* EDIT * A buddy says Journeymen are around $32/hour and Apprentices start around $19/hr.
It's tough to get into - pole climbing test is not easy.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
