Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Manufacturing Workers, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $27K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $32K. Manufacturing Workers with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $33K. After two decades in the workforce, the average Manufacturing Worker generally earns more than ever; median pay for this group is estimated at $38K.
