Skilled Trade Wage Maps

The skilled wage rate is used as the basis for determining the minimum of what an apprentice is paid at any time during the apprenticeship. It is derived from an analysis of the average pay scale of skilled workers in each region. The apprentice is paid a percentage, based on progress in the program. The State of Wisconsin Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards (BAS) sets the skilled wage rate, which is divided into seven regions for Wisconsin. These rates are in effect as of Feb. 1, 2020. Access the trade link to see the appropriate map, based on the contract (indenture) date to determine the correct wage rate.
