I'm just beginning to figure things out so pardon my ignorance if I ask for info that you seasoned fellas consider aggravating and/or common knowledge. What is the average 2017 hourly pay for electricians? What is the general policy (E.G. straight-time or time-and-a-half or .......) for the rate of pay for OT hours worked beyond 40? Thank you for y'all's time and assistance!

Average where?
What level of experience? Specialized training (motors? transformer/switchyard? breakers?)
Utility employed? Contractor?

Overtime is generally 1.5x after 40. Union contracts have other provisions - shift differential, holidays, Sundy premium - depends on the contract, local, etc.

As you can see, there isn't ONE answer....

Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you
