See how much plumbers, HVAC technicians, and electricians are paid in Louisiana

The United States is currently in the throes of a skilled trades worker shortage. Across the board, the country doesn’t have enough qualified electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and carpenters to meet the demand. One recent study found that many of the most in-demand jobs remain unfilled for at least a month. This comes as millions of Americans who were laid off during the early days of the coronavirus are looking for work.

That being said, not all job markets are the same. While it should be fairly easy to find work in all 50 states, how much that work pays is different depending on the state. To find the states where home service workers are paid the most, ServiceTitan analyzed June 2020 data from Payscale. The average salary of a home service worker was calculated by averaging the pay of entry-, intermediate-, and senior-level workers in each state. HVAC technicians, plumbers, and electricians were all included in the dataset, which can be seen nationally here.

Louisiana by the numbers

- Average yearly salary: $51,844 ($24.93 hourly)
--- Plumbers: $50,767 ($24.41 hourly)
--- Plumber pay increase from entry to senior level: $13,100 ($6.30 hourly)
--- HVAC technician: $51,633 ($24.82 hourly)
--- HVAC technician pay increase from entry to senior level: $15,400 ($7.40 hourly)
--- Electrician: $53,133 ($25.54 hourly)
--- Electrician pay increase from entry to senior level: $15,400 ($7.40 hourly)
