Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 18, 2005
The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) has released its 2004 Annual Wage & Fringe Benefits Survey Report showing that die casting industry wages are 16% greater than those in service-related jobs.
The study includes pay rates and benefit data for 13 job categories within the die casting industry. Peak wages for skilled positions can approach $60,000 a year plus benefits. North American die casters pay good wages because investments in advanced technology have improved the productivity of workers in the industry.
ÂSteady growth is seen in die casting because of the quality people being employed by these progressive companiesÂ says NADCA President Daniel L. Twarog. ÂThese are good jobs and turnover is usually minimal. Plus, there are significant opportunities for advancement since continuing education and training programs are encouraged by plant management.Â
The NADCA report includes wage rate data, insurance information, fringe benefit information and job descriptions for direct labor employees. The survey is based on data obtained from 50 companies across the U.S. To order a copy of the survey, visit http://www.diecasting.org/publications/.
Based in Wheeling, IL, the North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) represents the world's most effective die casters creating the world's best cast products. Working with a North American die caster guarantees innovation, integrity, accessibility, and reliability.
