This is the 14th installment of Construction Junkie's weekly analysis of the hourly wages of each individual construction profession by state.  The three previous professions we examined were sheet metal workers, building inspectors, and construction managers.  You can also see the full list of all past and future professions by clicking here.

Glaziers mainly install windows, skylights, and storefronts on buildings. Because they work with glass and often from heights, the trade is highly susceptible to cuts and falls from ladders and scaffolding.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that the glazing profession will grow 11% by 2026, which is higher than the rate of all professions combined.  A high school diploma and apprenticeship training is typically required to become a glazier in the construction industry.

Below you'll find a breakout of how each state compensates their building inspectors. All data below comes from the BLS' most recent reports from May 2016.

Graph of Average Hourly Wage of Glaziers - Adjusted for Cost of Living, by State

Cost of living in each state also has a large impact on the amount of money construction trades actually bring home, so the graph below shows each state's adjusted hourly wage based upon the cost of living index for that state.  All cost of living index data comes from the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center and was last updated for the second quarter of 2017.  The cost of living index was based upon grocery, housing, utilities, transportation, health, and miscellaneous costs for each state.
