Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Orthopedic Cast Technicians — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $31K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $36K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $40K in this role. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Orthopedic Cast Technicians with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $45K.
