See the info below from the U.S. Department of Labor. Although this isn't specific about beginning entry-level positions you can safely assume those are at the low end of the spectrum. ---- In 2002, the median hourly earnings of cement masons and concrete finishers were $14.74. The middle 50 percent earned between $11.52 and $20.02. The top 10 percent earned over $26.02, and the bottom 10 percent earned less than $9.31. In 2002, the median hourly earnings of terrazzo workers and finishers were $13.42. The middle 50 percent earned between $10.46 and $17.72. The top 10 percent earned over $23.70, and the bottom 10 percent earned less than $8.94. Like those of other construction trades workers, earnings of cement masons, concrete finishers, segmental pavers, and terrazzo workers may be reduced on occasion because poor weather and downturns in construction activity limit the amount of time they can work. Cement masons often work overtime, with premium pay, because once concrete has been placed, the job must be completed. Many cement masons, concrete finishers, segmental pavers, and terrazzo workers belong to the Operative Plasterers� and Cement Masons� International Association of the United States and Canada, or to the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers. Some terrazzo workers belong to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of the United States. Nonunion workers generally have lower wage rates than do union workers. Apprentices usually start at 50 to 60 percent of the rate paid to experienced workers.

edit-The current (2007) starting wage for a bricklayer in Los Angeles in the union is $11.92 an hour and journey top out at $34.07 after a 3.5 year apprenticeship.

Is that good grading of fine aggregate and fineness modulus any related?

Finess Modulus is just a value (number) indicating the fineness or coarseness of the aggregate. So, a river sand (natural sand) will be in the range of2.5 or so to 2.7 and P-gravel (P-stone, Birds-eye) may be around 5.0 Natural sand is used to make concrete block. Natural sand is also used to make ready mixed structural concrete along with water, cement powder, and a coarse 3/8" to 3/4" aggregate like limestone or gravel. SO, there are ASTM standard that regulate the gradation of aggregates for concrete masonry and structural concrete (ASTM C33 is one of them). Mason sand is used in precast concrete to emulate a fine limestone-like texture. It is also used in mortar and grout.
