Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $41K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $52K. On average, Machine Shop Foremans make $55K following one to two decades on the job. Average wages for folks with more than 20 years of experience come out to around $64K.
