Apprentices Earn and Learn

An apprentice is someone who is learning a trade while working under the guidance of skilled workers called journeymen. Apprenticeship is on-the-job training. As a carpenter apprentice you earn while you learn. You start at 40 percent of a skilled journeyman’s rate of pay and wages are increased at periodic intervals until they are 80 percent of a journeyman’s wages.
