Salary & Wage Information for Jobs in Shipyards

The U.S. Department of Labor compiles wage and salary statistics for various jobs
throughout the United States. If you visited the page for Wage & Salary Information
for Maritime Jobs, you would have found DOL statistics for jobs such as captains,
mates, pilots, engineers, deckhands, ABs (although the DOL uses the term sailors)
and other transportation workers, there are jobs that are not clumped together with
the cluster of traditional shipboard maritime jobs. These are jobs that arise, in
among other places, shipyards.

The Department of Labor does not study and analyze shipyard employment
individually or specifically as an industry. However, it does gather wage and salary
data for jobs that happen to fill a good portion of the job rosters of shipyards. When
you read through these jobs, keep in mind that wage and salary information is for
the position on the whole throughout the U.S. If you see the job title carpenter or
electrician, that data could have come from the construction or mining industry as
much as it could have come from the shipbuilding industry. Therefore the
information is presented as a reference by which you can gage a particular
shipyard's salary structure.
