If you’re done with menial jobs, like flipping burgers and landscaping work, consider a lifetime career in road construction.
Even the entry-level salaries are higher than elsewhere. If you work hard and continue to improve your skills, you’ll advance. Skilled workers can make as much as $70K or more per year, with good benefits such as medical, dental and retirement.
Even better, the work is steady. As long as people need to get from here to there, you’ll have a job. And you’ll have the added benefit of knowing you’re doing something important.
Below are some general hourly wages and annual salary ranges for road construction jobs in Georgia. These figures are averages and may vary from region to region within the state. With overtime, many workers earn well beyond these averages.
