Carpenter rate

Have you had any carpentry done lately? We were quoted $120 a hour for a carpenter and I’m wondering if that’s the going rate.

RE: Carpenter rate ()

I work in the commercial construction field. My current project is in the planning stages so I don't have the labor rates yet for this year, but on a project that finished in 2020, unioned carpenter apprentice is $96/hr, journeyman is approximately $100/hr, and foreman approximately $110/hr. I would say $120/hr for year 2022 is acceptable if you are working with unioned workers journeyman or above. These are standard rates, not overtime).
