In-plant Salary Report Shows 4.3% Rise in Pay
As the U.S. economy continues to improve, the salaries of in-plant managers have likewise risen. Since 2015 they have gone up 4.3%. The median salary over those two years rose by almost the same percentage: 4.2%.
More managers received raises last year as well. Overall, 81% got a pay increase, versus 76% two years ago. It was encouraging to see that nearly a third of in-plant managers like their jobs and would not consider high-paying offers elsewhere. Another 5% would only take a new job if it were at an in-plant.
