Engineering Salaries on the Rise in New BLS Data

Newly released data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show growth in compensation for most (but not all ) engineering jobs for those with a bachelor’s degree.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics is back on its spring schedule for releasing salary data. We had a hard time figuring out the organization’s schedule during the COVID-19 years. Now we have fresh data released in April 2022.

For many engineering disciplines, the increase in salary is significant, for others it’s a small blip, while salaries decreased slightly for chemical engineers.
