Lathers - Wages & Trends

Wages vary by the worker's level of skill and the area of the country. Plasterers in large cities generally earn the highest wages. Earnings can sometimes be reduced because of work time lost due to bad weather. Plasterers can also lose work during economic slowdowns, when jobs are not available.

Benefits vary by employer. Full-time plasterers may receive typical benefits. These include paid vacation, sick leave, and health insurance.
