How much is the average US worker's salary? Salaries vary based on gender, education, occupation, industry, geographical location, ethnicity, and other factors. Here is information about average salaries in a variety of categories and calculators to use to determine the salary for specific occupations.

Average Salary Information for US Workers

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median wage for workers in the United States in the first quarter of 2019 was $905 per week or $47,060 per year for a 40-hour workweek. Wages were 2.7% higher than on the same date for the previous year.

However, salaries can vary significantly based on both occupation and location. What's considered a good salary in one location may not be somewhere else. For example, people working in professional, management, and related occupations earned an average of $66,820 annually, while those working in service occupations earned an average of $30,524 annually. Jobs in large metropolitan cities, which have higher costs of living, also tend to pay more than jobs in more rural areas. Read below for more information about average salaries based on factors such as gender, education, and more.

Average Salaries for US Men and Women

The BLS reports that,in the first quarter of 2019, men earned a median salary of $52,208 annually, while women earned only $41,912 or 80.3% of what males earned.

Race and ethnicity also play a role in salaries for men and women. For example, white women earned 80.0% as much as their white male counterparts, while black women earned 91.8% of their black male counterparts.

However, black men earned a median salary of $40,144, which is only 74.7% of what white men earned ($53,716). The difference for women was a bit less; black women’s median earnings were 85.8% ($36,868) of white women’s median earnings ($42,952). The BLS also provides information on Hispanic and Asian wage earners, who earned a median salary of $36,192 and $60,164, respectively.

Average Salary by Age

Salaries also varied by age, but the numbers are different for men and women. For example, men aged 55 to 64 had the highest annual earnings ($61,048). Women, on the other hand, earned the highest wages between ages 35 and 44 ($47,996).

Average Salary Based on Education

The BLS data clearly reveals that completing more education pays off. Workers aged 25 and over without a high school degree had median annual earnings of $30,056 over the first quarter of 2019 compared to $38,428 for high school graduates without a college degree. College graduates with at least a bachelor's degree earned $70,200 annually.

College graduates with advanced degrees (a professional or master’s degree or higher) earned a median salary of $81,848. Here's an overview of how much more you can earn during your career if you have a college or advanced degree.

Brebes Disiapkan Jadi Lokasi Pindah Pabrik AS dari China

Berdasarkan berita yang dihimpun bersama (CNBC Indonesia) - Brebes digadang-gadang akan menjadi lokasi baru relokasi pabrik-pabrik multinasional milik Amerika Serikat di China yang akan dipindah ke Indonesia. Hal ini diungkapkan oleh Menko Bidang Kemaritiman dan investasi luhut Binsar Panjaitan terkait percakapan antara Presiden Joko Widodo dengan Presiden Donald Trump.

Nama Brebes belakangan sering jadi buah buah bibir, selain jadi lokasi baru relokasi pabrik PT Shyang Yao Fung, salah satu pabrik yang memproduksi brand kenamaan yang buyernya antara lain Adidas, yang pindah dari Tangerang.  Brebes juga digadang-gadang menjadi lokasi baru relokasi pabrik-pabrik multinasional milik AS di China yang akan dipindah ke Indonesia.

Hal ini bermula saat Menko Bidang Maritim dan Investasi Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan bercerita soal percakapan 'rahasia' antara Presiden Jokowi dengan Presiden AS Donald Trump. Jokowi berbicara dengan Presiden Amerika Serikat (AS) Donald Trump, soal pembahasan peluang investasi di bidang farmasi di Indonesia, karena 90% bahan baku farmasi harus impor.

"Presiden Jokowi bicara dengan Presiden Trump, sekarang Presiden Trump dengan Indonesia. Karena dia berantem dengan Tiongkok, dia mau relokasi industrinya (di China), saya diminta presiden untuk bicara nanti sama pembantu Presiden Trump," sebut Luhut, kemarin (10/5).

Luhut memang tak menjelaskan kapan pembicaraan tersebut. Namun, komunikasi kedua pemimpin yang diketahui publik terungkap saat Trump dalam cuitannnya di akun twitter pribadinya @realDonaldTrump, pada Jumat (24/4/2020), mengungkapkan soal permintaan bantuan ventilator dari Presiden Jokowi. 

Luhut bilang pemerintah sedang menyiapkan lahan 4.000 hektare di Jawa Tengah. Lahan itu khusus disediakan untuk kawasan ekonomi khusus untuk industri farmasi.

"Sekarang kita kerjakan. Sambil kita bicarakan dengan Gubernur Jateng, untuk sekarang kita mulai. Sebenarnya itu pernah dikerjakan itu tapi terhenti, nah, jadi kalau dibilang nggak [jalan] ini industri jalan semua, sekarang misalnya industri APD sekarang buatan dalam negeri 1,5 juta produksi per bulan," kata Luhut.

Pernyataan Luhut soal kawasan industri seluas 4.000 hektare mengerucut pada kawasan industri di Brebes, sebab Kawasan Industri di Kendal luasnya hanya 2.200 hektare.

Pihak Jubir Kemenko Marves Jodi Mahardi saat diminta penjelasan CNBC Indonesia masih butuh waktu untuk menjelaskan soal rencana besar tersebut, ia masih perlu koordinasi dengan beberapa pihak.

Menteri Perindustrian (Menperin) Agus Gumiwang sebelumnya sudah menyiapkan 27 kawasan industri baru yang akan dibangun dalam kurun waktu 2020-2024. Salah satu daerah yang akan dibangun kawasan industri, yaitu di Brebes, Jawa Tengah. Brebes selama ini terkenal dengan bawang dan telur asinnya.

"Dari 27 kawasan itu, hanya ada 2 di Pulau Jawa. Satu di Brebes dan satu di Madura. Selebihnya, atau 25 lainnya diarahkan di kawasan-kawasan industri di luar Pulau Jawa," ujar Agus.

Pemda Kabupaten Brebes punya rencana pengembangan Kawasan Industri Brebes (KIB) seluas 3.976 hektare dan untuk Kawasan Peruntukan Industri Brebes (KPIB) seluas 5.070 hektare. Kawasan industri ini akan membentang dari kecamatan Losari, Tanjung hingga Bulakamba.

Dalam catatan resmi Pemkab Brebes, sebanyak 39 perusahaan yang bergerak di berbagai sektor usaha telah mendaftar sebagai penghuni Kawasan Industri Brebes sampai November 2019. Sebanyak 24 investor yang telah mendirikan pabrik di Kabupaten Brebes, selebihnya masih dalam proses perizinan sebanyak 12 perusahaan hingga akhir 2019.
