Welders and fabricators work in most areas of manufacturing. Welders use extreme heat to permanently bond pieces of metal that will in turn create products. Fabricators assemble those parts to create whole goods such as cars, computers and household appliances. The amount of money welders and fabricators receive depends upon the type of industry in which they work.
