Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Across the entire workforce, experience and pay tend to be weakly linked—those with more experience do not necessarily bring in much higher salaries. Salaries can reach $69,601 from $61K after five to 10 years. Pay amounts to $82K after 10 to 20 years. As Small Business Owners reach 20 years on the job, salary increases slow down a bit, averaging $90K. Small Business Owners with one to 10 years of experience are most common in the field, followed by those with more than 20 years and 10 to 20 years. Workers who have been working for 10 to 20 years are hardest to find.
