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. Average salaries for inexperienced employees average out to around $31K, but folks who have five to 10 years of experience earn a higher median of $36K. Precision Grinders claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $40K. Survey participants who have worked for more than two decades report bringing in $49K on average.
