An ICF construction manager is being paid $2,500 per week to provide the construction team with basic work like scaffolding and cleaning up after construction workers.
Construction workers, meanwhile, can make $1,400 per week, but that salary can increase if they are working overtime.
The paychecks for ICF workers are paid on a sliding scale based on their performance on the job, according to a new report from the Center for Responsive Politics.
In other words, a worker who is performing well, but gets a bad night’s sleep and is late for a shift can earn more money than a worker that is doing well.
The average pay for a construction manager, or worker who manages construction, is about $1.4 million per year.ICF, a subsidiary of the American Construction and Engineering Federation, makes millions of dollars per year, according an Associated Press report.
A recent AP investigation found that workers at construction sites in Indiana, Ohio, Missouri and Wisconsin are paid roughly $20,000 to $30,000 less per year than those who are employed in the construction industry at the national level.
Construction companies are not required to report pay details to the public.
Instead, the union that represents the workers, ICF Construction, keeps track of the details in its contracts and in pay reports submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor.
The Associated Press found that ICF pays its workers more than any other construction company in the country.
The highest-paid workers were paid an average of $2 million per contract, followed by the other two highest-paying construction jobs, according the AP.
The report found that in some cases, the highest- paid workers in construction work have been employed in industries like construction, engineering and building trades.
In some cases of workers who are paid less than the minimum wage, the pay is below the minimum-wage level.
The pay for workers who earn less than $15 an hour is often not reported to the federal government, the AP reported.
The report also found that the number of workers in ICF’s construction workforce has grown by a factor of nearly two since 2012.
The number of construction workers working in construction has increased by over 10% over that same period.
The workers at the top of the pay scale are paid more than $2M per year on average, according a 2014 report from labor research firm IBISWorld.
The workers at all levels of construction pay a higher average than those at the bottom, with the highest pay earners earning an average $3.8 million per month.
The average hourly wage in the field is about 50% higher than in other construction occupations.
Workers in construction jobs make an average more than double what construction workers make in other fields, according IBIS World.
In 2012, construction was the largest industry in construction in the U and one of the fastest-growing in the nation.
In the past five years, the number has grown almost sixfold.
