What is the salary for Flooring Installation labourers?

Does anyone out there work for a contracting company or do you perhaps own your own flooring business and if so what wage do you get/what wage do you pay for your employees? Also to compare, please list the city/area you live in. Right now my spouse is employed at $18/hr but that isn't enough for all the work he does. He has worked gor his uncle for 18 years now and he is still only at $18/hr. I have had it! The business is the only flooring company in town and they get all the big contracts so my husband makes his uncle rich! Get this! The uncle is also the mayor of our town and owns the largest restaurant and hotel/beverage room and vendor! He doesn't even need the flooring business but he hangs onto it and why not when he doesn't have to do any physical labor! I have asked over and over for my husband to demand a raise but he won't. There are no benefits in the job either! We, his family are not covered should anything, God forbid, happen to him. Am I sounding greedy or does the situation give me right to vent about our situation? I am also employed full time but I make $15/hr and I work in an office. Shouldn't he get more than I do? What do ya all think?
