The IRC has returned their decision on the clarification of the un-indentured apprentices wages for welders and fitters. They kept to their original decision on this matter.To sum it up it goes like this: Any un-indentured apprentice that does not have a Plumbing licence for 12 months or more shall be paid at the current $9.50 per hour rate. So if you happen to be a fitter or a welder or a un-indentured apprentice(helper) under the un-indentured apprentice category you get $9.50 per hour minimum.
