How Much does a Plumber Charge Per Hour?

The average plumber that works for himself makes anywhere from $15.00 an hour to $35.00 an hour. I worked in a union factory and our plumbers, or pipefitters as they liked to be called, made $28.00 an hour, with 11/2 time paid for any work over 40 hours and double time on Sundays. That pay made a nasty job worth while!
