Job pay for IT Tech?

Hey guys, i am just wondering, what are example pays for someone who builds, repairs, and trouble shoots pcs and make wires? I know they're thousands of people on this forums, and hundreds of them have IT jobs. So i was just wondering, how much do you start off with? I start doing my externships next thursday and i know it depends on locations for pays, but just thinkg what do you get?
Thanks for the info in advance. =D

I don't know how much you'd get in a salary position... but I generally charge $40.00 per hour when doing service work.

It's one of the perks of being the company instead of working for one... Most of the shops around here are charging $60 and $70 an hour.

Anyone who works for me gets half of their billings ... i.e. $20 per hour.

Then, my new friend, you are being horridly taken advantage of.

My rule is simple... "Do you live in my house? No? Then you're going to pay me."
