PIERCE COUNTY WORKFORCE
In contrast to typical industry groupings, employment by the type of occupation gives us a much more worker-centric view of the labor force. Below, we illustrate employment concentrations (size of each bubble) by detailed occupation, distributed across a choice of employment statistics. This allows for meaningful comparisons between occupation groups and within for several labor market measures.
Current wage data has never been more important. The access to this information is critical for workers making informed career choices, for advocates and business to address disparities, and for employers to successfully retain & recruit new workers in a labor-tight landscape. The information below presents a range of wage estimates for each occupation. Click on the arrow in the top left of the dashboard to open a menu for adjusting the region, occupations, and wage measure selection. You can create custom comparison lists using a keyword search of the title or standard occupation code.
