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. Relatively untried employees who have fewer than five years of experience earn around $31K on average. People who have worked for five to 10 years can expect a higher median salary of $36K. Precision Grinders see a median salary of $41K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Average wages for folks with more than 20 years of experience come out to around $50K.
