— A new study from the U.S. Department of Labor shows that retailers with more than 2,000 employees earn on average $21 an hour more than those with fewer than 300 workers.
The study is based on data from U.K.-based recruitment firm Zogby Analytics, which conducted interviews with more, in-person interviews with about 2,500 retail workers and online surveys with more of those same workers.
Retailers that employ at least 1,000 workers also earn more than workers with fewer workers, the study found.
The new report is the first to measure the wage gap between retail workers in the U, and those who work on the job, for a decade.
The Zog by Zog survey has collected data from more than 40,000 retail workers, from January 2000 to March 2018.
The data show that the median annual wage for retail workers was $20,566 in 2019, up $7,726 from last year.
But it also showed that retail workers were making a lot less than the median wage for all workers in 2019.
The median hourly wage for the retail workforce was $17.96 in 2019 — $4.72 higher than the 2019 median wage, and $2.28 higher than a decade ago.
The difference in hourly wages between the retail and other workers is smaller for lower-paying positions.
For example, retail workers who worked in stores with fewer people made an average of $19.50 in 2019 and $16.98 in 2019 after adjusting for inflation, Zogbys survey found.
Those in retail shops that have fewer than 500 workers made an even smaller average hourly wage of $16 per hour.
Retail workers in stores where fewer than 1,200 workers were working made an extra $2 per hour in 2019 for an average hourly earnings of $20.83.
The wage gap also varies by state.
The national wage gap is $20 per hour for full-time workers in Alaska and $20 for part-time and temporary workers in Washington.
The differences between retail and retail workers are smaller for low-wage workers in California and New York.
The minimum wage in Washington State was $10.15 per hour last year, and retail and warehouse workers earned $8.85 and $8, respectively, in 2019 according to Zogbis.
The Wage Gap at the Top The retail wage gap isn’t the only thing to watch for as the economy gets better.
The U.T.S.-based research firm says that there are several other factors that affect pay, including factors like experience, education and work history.
Retail job seekers and employers also have a lot of information about the retail job market, said Zogbusters president and CEO Mike Rupprecht.
They should look at the jobs they are seeking, and then they should look carefully at the salary and benefits, said Ruppretcht, who is a former retail executive.
It’s not just a job, but it’s a lifestyle, he said.
He believes that it’s important for employers to use the data to assess the skills of the workers, and that employers can use that information to better prepare for the job market.
The latest retail wage report came out last week, just as the U-T-S.
retail survey of workers was released.
Retail jobs have been hard hit by the recession, and the U.-T-P.S., the UW-C.I.O. and other organizations have said they expect to see more retail workers leave the industry in 2019 as they focus on finding new jobs.
