    You have to be far more specific to get any answer to this. Area of fab, of country, company size, union or not, fitter or not, ... etc.

      A good way to find out is search Craigslist in different cities in different states. Very easy to do. I'm in northern Colorado and wages will run anywhere from $12 to $25 an hour with lots of overtime available. Of course the oilfield welders make considerably more.

        My suggestion is $30 as their salary and their working time will be 8 to 10.

          I imagine a good shop is hard to find. Not great work conditions either. Just off minimum wage for salary.

            In the U.S., check the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You may have to search around, as they have a lot of info.
