Wage & Benefit Survey

Wage and Benefits Survey

The 2015 Annual Wage & Benefits Survey is a joint project of the affliiated organizations of Printing Industries of America. It was conducted in the summer of 2015 and the effective reporting date was June 1, 2015. This year's survey had over 600 companies participating and included compensation reporting of nearly 22,000 employees.

The wages reflect the “top” wages in each job classification paid by participating companies.   NOTE: Management and Department Management are reported as annual salaries.  All other data is hourly.  No bonuses are included.

In 2015, per the request of numerous member companies, the reporting metrics were expanded, which resulted in much more comprehensive survey.  The following is this year’s format for wage reporting:


# of Co – The number of companies reporting

# of Ee – The number of responses/employees which were reported in this classification

Average – The numerical average of all data reported in that classification

Lowest – The lowest wage/salary reported

Q1 -- 25% of all reported data is below this compensation figure

Median/Q2 – The midpoint of all data reported

Q3 – 75% of all reported data is below this wage/salary

P90 – 90% of all wages/salaries reported are below this level

Highest – The highest wage/salary reported.

As in past surveys, because of regional differences in compensation, as well as company size, wages are reported by region and in terms of company employment.  The regions are as follows:

North East -- ME, NH, DE, VT, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, DC, MD

South East -- WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, MS, AL, KY, TN

South Central -- OK, TX, LA, AR, KS, MO

North Central -- WI, MI, IL, IN, OH, ND, MN, SD, IA, NE

Mountain States – AZ, NM, CO, UT

West -- ID, MT, WY, NV, AK, WA, OR, CA, HI
