Potential lifetime earnings

Trend Exists with Middle-skill Jobs Too!

Middle-skill STEM jobs represent a significant opportunity for the thousands of unemployed and underemployed people who seek to move into a career that provides a family-supporting wage. In 2011, workers in middle-skill STEM occupations earned 61% more than workers in non-STEM occupations with similar levels of education.

STEM Workers

STEM workers tend to earn more than similarly educated non-STEM workers. In fact, Blacks and Hispanics are underrepresented within STEM jobs. As well, women have made significant gains in life and physical sciences, but in other areas their shares have been stable and in computer jobs it has declined. STEM is more than just about money!
