2008 WritersUA Salary Survey Published: $76K Is Average

Jan 30, 2008 • general

I read on Holly Harkness's blog that the 2008 WritersUA Salary Survey has just been published. Holly writes,

The good news is that salaries in the United States now average $76,044, up over $2000 from last year. The bad news is the gender gap in compensation is alive and well. Men average $4000 more per year than women. WritersUA reports that the gap is growing, not shrinking.

For survey details, see the WritersUA salary survey home page. Here's their graph of salary by location.
