Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Someone who has worked for fewer than five years earns around $31K on average. Individuals with five to 10 years of experience don't get much more, though; the average income in this group is $33K. Highway Maintenance Workers with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $36K. Survey participants who have worked for more than two decades report bringing in $47K on average.
