ABBRA releases wage rate survey

Results from the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association 2010 Wage Rate Survey are now available.

The results, generated via input from ABBRA members and other members of the marina and boatyard industry, allow employers to gauge whether they are fair and competitive in the employment market. Employees and independent contractors also can research whether they are getting the correct compensation for their work.

"The Wage Rate Survey is a particularly important resource in today's economy," ABBRA president Doug Domenie said in a statement. "Many employers may be considering whether or not they have to cut jobs or salaries in the future. The survey is an accurate depiction of real salaries and benefits and helps the industry's work force to maintain consistency and high standards."

The survey is free for ABBRA members who provided data for this year's survey and $65 for members who did not. The cost of the survey is $99 for all non-members.

To order the survey, please submit a publications order form.
