Cement Masons - Wages & Trends

The number of hours cement masons spend on the job can vary. For example, bad weather or downturns in construction activity can reduce hours. Thus, overall earnings may be lower than these wages suggest.

Pay also varies with the employer and the type of job. Apprentices generally earn about half the wage of skilled masons. As apprentices gain experience and skills, they receive higher pay.

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