Nevada Association of Employers releases pay survey

The Nevada Association of Employers (NAE) published the results from its 2017 Nevada Pay Survey, showing more than a 10 percent salary increase in select blue-collar positions compared to 2012.

Overall, the 2017 report has shown an increase of more than 3 percent in the average base pay of management, exempt and non-exempt positions for the previous 12 months.

NAE’s annual survey contains data from 75 Nevada employers and more than 8,000 employees intended to measure pay rates and practices throughout the state. The results reflect a rising trend for Nevada’s blue-collar workers in jobs such as a production assembly worker, mechanical assembler, production lead person and automated machine operator.
