TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released its annual report on average wages in the United States on March 29.
The report, called the National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates, details average wages for virtually all types of jobs during May 2012. It recorded an average national wage of $45,790 for all occupations. That's an increase of $560 over the previous year.
ISU economist Dr. Robert Guell said that increase, which is smaller than other past increases, is a sign of lower-than-desired national employment rates.
"It is typical of a recession recovery in which you've got a lot of unemployment," Guell said. "There is very little pressure on wages to rise in any particular sector."
