What are typical journeyman electrician salaries? Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

$23 to $35 an hour in Western Mass for an Manufacturing/Industrial Journyman electrician. Most Residential electricians charge anywhere from $20(usually someone who just got their ticket and living with mom) to $100 an hour, needless to say who most people go with.

I am a substation electrician in californian, I make 44 dollars an hour plus more overtime than I ever wanted. I could make up to 200k a year. I do work a lot of emergencys in good weather a bad. Also work all different hours really long days, one day lasted over 50 hours. My employer trained me they paid for it I never owed them a dime even if I never finished. I have really good medical, dental, and vision plan provided by employer albof with retirement and a 401k that they match up to 6% with company stock. I love my job work load is on the light side with a lot of down time when everything is working correctly.

Is this working for PG&E? I live in California and I am considering going through a program at my college to become a substation technician. Any tips?

18 an hour is crazy low. I've been clearing between 8K an 11k per month since I turned out. My current job is the first time I've accepted low pay (5k per month) and I only accepted because I really wanted working in Antarctica on my resume. Also, the free food, housing, and travel is nice.
