Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers are on the rise in the United States and across the globe, but the paychecks for those careers aren’t what they used to be.
As a result, there are now many candidates for a STEM job that aren’t necessarily in science or engineering fields.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual earnings for a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)-certified engineer in 2017 was $67,000, compared to the $49,000 median earnings for the same positions for the previous year.
But the median STEM salary dropped from $65,000 in 2016 to $60,000 last year.
This drop is especially pronounced among engineers, whose median salary fell from $68,000 to $64,000.
The average STEM salary for all occupations, meanwhile, is now $80,000 per year.
However, for the science, engineering, math and computer science (STEM-C) fields, the average salary was $84,000 for 2017.
The difference is even more pronounced for engineering, where the median earnings were $96,000 and for the computer and information science fields, $89,000; and for computer and mathematical sciences, $94,000—more than double the median salaries of other STEM fields.
The numbers are so large that many of the STEM jobs that were once filled by engineers now only pay engineers.
According to a 2017 study by the Economic Policy Institute, STEM occupations that were formerly filled by skilled tradespeople now pay less than their counterparts in other fields.
STEM occupations are also less attractive to women than other STEM careers.
The Economic Policy Center found that of the 14,839 STEM occupations, fewer than half were held by women.
As a result of these changes, the demand for STEM jobs has decreased, and the shortage of STEM jobs is on the increase.
A 2017 survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found that the number of STEM job openings dropped by 23% between 2016 and 2017.
That was the largest annual drop in the STEM job market since the 2008 financial crisis.
The Federal Reserve also found that STEM job shortages are growing at a slower pace than those for non-STEM occupations, with STEM jobs holding fewer openings than non-science occupations in 2017.
But, the Fed said that this is because of a lack of hiring of engineers.
In 2017, the STEM unemployment rate was 8.9%, but in 2018 that figure dropped to 6.4%.
In 2020, it was 7.9% and in 2021, it dropped to 5.7%.
The lack of skilled trades workers in STEM fields has a big impact on the job market.
According the American Association of University Women, STEM workers are more likely to be female than the general population.
And women make up an increasing portion of STEM professionals.
In fact, women made up 20.7% of the labor force in 2016, but only 6.3% in 2017, according to the National Science Foundation.
However to those numbers, it is important to note that women are still only 17.5% of science and engineering graduates in the US.
According the Bureau and the Economic Development Administration, more than 3 million STEM students enrolled in college in 2016.
However that number only includes students who enrolled in STEM programs and not those who earned their degree in any other field.
For those who graduated from STEM programs, the total number of students enrolled is around 1.7 million.
But this figure is likely far higher than the actual number of people who graduated and enrolled in the field of STEM.
For all of the changes that have occurred over the past decade, there is one thing that has remained constant: the cost of STEM education.
The American Association for University Women (AAUW) estimates that STEM education costs $30,000 more than a general education degree, which is one of the main reasons that STEM careers have not grown in the past 25 years.
A recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that the cost to educate STEM graduates in 2020 was $33,000 a year, but it also found out that only 14% of STEM graduates received college aid.
That is not even counting the cost associated with transferring into a STEM degree.
In the 2020 report, the Bureau also found there were around 1 million STEM jobs and that the average STEM-educated person is $53,000 under the poverty line.
That’s just for the STEM fields alone.
In the future, there will be more STEM jobs, but they will pay less and offer less benefits.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that, for a typical STEM bachelor’s degree, an associate’s degree will cost an additional $4,000 annually, while a Ph.
D. degree will pay a student an additional more than $11,000 when compared to a bachelor’s in a STEM field.
The unemployment rate for STEM workers is now 11.6%.
