You should put this on the tech-ops forum and you will have many more replies. Right now things are pretty bad at most of the major airlines and no hiring going on but as always that's subject to change. If you acquire your license the pay ranges will very greatly depending on where you work. The ranges are working in a small general aviation shop to a major airline with senority. This can range from $5.00 per hour up to the current UPS contract which will be around $43.00 after the newly signed contract in 3 or 5 years. Hope this helps a little.
