Construction Support Staff Wages Expected to Rise by 3.3% This Year
 

Construction support staff wages rose by 3.5% in 2016 and contractors are projecting those wages to increase an average of 3.3% in 2017, according to the latest Contractor Compensation Quarterly (CCQ) published by PAS, Inc. Based on over 175 companies in the 14th edition of the Construction Support Staff Salary Survey, PAS reports that pay increases have been fairly consistent the past few years. Although, PAS points out that historically predictions are typically about low, so year-end 2017 could exceed 3.3% and look similar to 2016’s 3.5% increase.

 

PAS also reveals a number of benefit survey trends in this edition of CCQ, reporting that the percentage of firms reducing their level of benefits in 2017 was 1.5%. Voluntary benefits (health, retirement, paid time off, etc.) have gone from an average of 19% of payroll in 1988 to 24.8% in 2017 and for PPO’s, the average deductible for a family is now $3,100 and for an individual is $1,469.
