Advanced Manufacturing Key Cog

Gascon and Spewak said wages in advanced manufacturing are high, with the average worker (both production and nonproduction) earning more than $1,600 per week. Wages were highest in computers and electronics manufacturing ($2,300) and chemical manufacturing ($1,900), they noted.

Today, the average advanced manufacturer makes $1.53 for every $1 that the average private sector worker makes, Gascon and Spewak wrote.

In contrast, workers in non- advanced manufacturing sectors earn essentially earn the same wage as other private sector workers, they noted.

BUT Advanced manufacturing employment as a share of private employment has steadily declined over the years, but the sector remains a significant cog in the U.S. economy, Gascon and Spewak concluded.
