Which statistics are you using?

The answer, it seems, is a bit of both.

The data that’s being gathered on labor in the US is compiled by various organizations, such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau for Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Census Bureau, and it can be used to calculate wages, benefits, unemployment, etc. But what about the data that you’re not using?

The following chart shows data for various labor statistics, which can be helpful for determining the average earnings for different industries. 

This chart is from the Bureau’s labor statistics site, and shows how different industries fare in terms of average annual earnings for their members.

For example, while some industries, such the apparel industry, earn much more than others, other industries are in the middle.

It’s worth noting that the chart also includes information on wages, bonuses, hours worked and hours worked per week.

For instance, the chart shows that the clothing industry, as a whole, earns around $40,000 per year, while the shoe manufacturing industry, at $12,000, earns less.

That means that shoe manufacturing employees are making around $3,500 per year on average, while textile workers make around $9,000.

So how does this compare to the rest of the labor market?

Well, it’s quite interesting.

For a start, we can compare the average yearly earnings for all workers.

For those of you who are curious, this chart shows how the average hourly earnings of all US workers are compared to the average salaries of workers in other industries.

The chart shows what the average salary is in each industry. 

The chart also indicates that the average weekly earnings of workers are lower in the apparel and footwear industries, which, in turn, makes sense. 

In the footwear industry, the average wage is $9.29 per week, whereas the average overtime pay is $2.17 per hour.

The average weekly hours worked in the textile industry are also much lower, at 42.8 hours per week compared to 54.3 hours per day. 

For those of us who work in retail or hospitality, the numbers are more mixed.

The charts below show the average wages and overtime pay for retail and hospitality workers. 

Retail and hospitality employees, on average make about $16.30 per hour, while their counterparts in retail and restaurant industry earn about $17.25 per hour each.

The retail and hotel industry, however, have lower overtime pay than the apparel, footwear and apparel manufacturing industries.

So what does this all mean?

The Bureau of Labour Statistics has a number of data sets that provide the data on which the averages are being computed.

These include, for instance, wages, salaries, hours, bonuses and tips. 

So what you can do with the data is to try and determine how the wages are being distributed among the various industries.

This data is also used to produce employment statistics that will help you to understand the composition of the workforce, which is key for any job search.

The bottom line is that the data from these sources can be very useful, as you can see from the above chart.

The Bureau is the first to publish this data, but the data will be updated regularly and you can also look at the Bureau data through its Labor Statistics site.
