Weekly earnings for self-employed plumbing contractors rebounded last month, according to the latest figures released by Hudson Contract.
Analysis of June payroll data for more than 2,200 construction companies in England and Wales reveals a month-on-month increase of 4.7 per cent to an average of £1,132. The rise reverses the 3.2 per cent fall seen in May.
Year on year, weekly earnings showed a 4.3 per cent improvement in June compared to the same month in 2018, illustrating the strong underlying demand for plumbers.
Plumbing remains the second-best paid of all 17 construction trades covered by Hudson Contract. Shop-fitters retained top place for the second month.
