New data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics shows how much a month of work has a higher income over the past 10 years than it did 10 years ago.
In 2017, a worker earned $15,100.
This year, it was $17,600.
The difference in income was $9,000, or 4.7%.
The BLS has a new measure of income for all workers, which measures how much money workers have earned in the past 12 months.
This means that if a worker has earned $13,400 in 2017, they would now be earning $13.3 million.
The BPS report also gives a better sense of how much people make and how much they pay for housing, groceries, transportation and other essentials.
Here’s how the difference has changed over time.
Note: The BIS data is based on an average of the latest 10 months.
