Martin Kohli, Chief Regional Economist at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
In both the nation and the New York area unemployment has returned to pre-recession levels. Despite the recovery, wage and salary increases remain relatively modest in many industries, occupations, and geographic areas. This presentation will review wage trends and identify industries, areas, and demographic groups with both larger- and smaller-than-average wage increases. Trends in benefit costs and provisions will also be discussed. The presentation will conclude by discussing salaries for compensation professionals in the nation and the New York area.
