Tampa Sees Wages Increase For Jobs in Tri-County Area

There is a slight breeze coming into the heat of the summer here in Tampa. A recent data analysis from the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) has announced that those with employment and jobs in the Tampa Bay area have seen an increase in their wages, despite the economy.

The tri-county area has one of the largest increases in the country as far as wage increases goes. This may be a sign to the region that commerce and tourism are increasing.

Here are the stats from the BLS:

  • Pinellas: Average wage: $852. Increase: 5.7 percent. Rank among 334 counties: 21.
  • Hillsborough: Average wage: $927. Increase: 5.8 percent. Rank among 334 counties: 17.
  • Pasco: Average wage: $680. Increase: 1.8 percent. Rank among 334 counties: 241.

As you are looking for a new job in Tampa this summer, look for companies that are increasing their wages and taking care of their employees. We all want stability and a place that we feel welcomed and appreciated. Now there may be some incentive in the wallet sector for great employees.

This month at the Tampa Employment Guide, we have jobs from some great companies that think of their employees as team members and look to people like you for the success of their business. Search for these companies now on Tampa's Job Board!
