StatsCan: Average hourly wages 2007-2008

http://www40.statcan.ca/l01/cst01/labr69k.htm

An interesting set of numbers? I personally don't know that many people that make an average of $22.00/h (lower end of the 25-54 scale).

Nothing too surprising although the % change in hourly wages I thought would be higher.

Most of the people I know would be hurting pretty bad if they were only making 22.00 an hour. Mind ya, getting an hourly rate is never really the best way to get money anyway.

Why is that? 22 seems like a lot..

And wow I didn't know union jobs were avg $5/hr more than non-unionized.
Is it better to work union because of this?

Making $25 or so an hour isn't that much if you're living alone and paying bills, especially when you're giving $350-400+ every two weeks to the government just in taxes.

i think what they did is they converted people's salaries into hourly wage.
or else that table would be meaningless if they only did it for people that earned hourly wage.

Unions negotiate higher wages for their employees because they have that kind of power. But depending on your benefits and whatnot, you could be paying a lot for union dues, benefits, pensions, etc. This could nullify any extra gains you gross, leaving you with the same net payment (or sometimes a lil' less) than a similar non-union job.

$22/hr, I make less than the national average

$22/hr is 45k/year.
$25/hr is 52k/year.

Dunno about you, but I could live on my own at those wages. Hell, I know many ppl that live on their own at these wages and less.

If you include all the apprentices, then the number sounds right.

Depends on your lifestyle. I don't drink or smoke so I save tons of money on that. Plus I work 10 mins away from my house so I don't use that much gas. I make around $20 an hour, it provides me a comfortable lifestyle. I'm able to save atleast 10,000 a year on that salary so I'm very happy where I'm at. In a few years I'll be able to buy a house. Its all about what you do with your money not how much you make. Obviously if you make more you can do more but if you're smart with your money then you can do anything.

It varies so much from trade to trade and even within trades. A framer/helper with no or little experience is making less then $20 an hour. A Journeyman framer is getting $30-35 an hour. If they are really good and demand is high which it is right now they might get more and if they aren't so good they might get less. Then you have the ones that are fast and skilled working piecework making over $50 an hour.

I'm guessing the other trades work the same way. It all comes down to demand really, this isn't going to last for ever. I mean they'll always be work but the wages are getting out of hand and once the demand creeps back the wages will correct.

It's funny. Just reading by the replies on this thread, you can easily tell who lives on their own, and who lives with mommy and daddy.

Its about how you save and invest, not by how much you make on salary / wage.


If you build your financial foundation early while living with mommy and daddy, it doesnt matter as much how much you rake in $ / hr. You will have alternate sources of income from investments.

I disagree totally. Having good money management skills is obviously a great quality to have and will help you make the best of what you earn. Saying that if you are just scraping by it doesn't matter who you are you are or what money skills you have you're not going to be able to invest enough to change your life significantly. This is off another forum and is a point someone made that made a lot of sense I'll just quote it instead of paraphrasing it.

there is an implication that poor people are poor *because* they don't have good financial planning skills, and the idea that people who make $500 a month are worse at budgeting than people who make $5000 a month. Really? You think so? You think it takes more skill or knowledge to figure out how to get by on $5000 than $500? You think that if only we taught the idiot making $500 a month about compound interest he'd be in a mansion in no time?

I know your saying if you live at home with your parents it's easier to save and that is obviously true. What grown person wants to live with their parents? I sure as hell don't and none of my friends did. That might mean being worse off or not in as good of a place financially in the future but thats one trade off thats totally necessary and worth it IMO. Finish school and get the fark out of dodge.
