The average working day for an independent contractor (or ICT employee) is 8.2 hours, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That’s an average of 5 hours more than for employees of public employers.
And while most independent contractors make more than $80,000 annually, the number is skewed by the millions of workers who have been in the workforce for a long time.
The bureau also tracks earnings by occupation.
While the average independent contractor earns more than the average worker in a similar occupation, the numbers are skewed by a large number of workers in the middle of the income spectrum.
Many people work in high-paying positions in a number of industries, but the majority of those workers are not self-employed, according the bureau.
While these statistics have been tracked for a number.
years, their current data are outdated, according a report released last year by the Center for American Progress, a liberal-leaning think tank.
“I think the big takeaway here is that the pay gap is really not as wide as it once was,” said John B. Lippman, a professor of economics at the University of Michigan and author of “The Pay Gap.”
Lippmann pointed out that the median hourly wage for full-time workers in 2017 was $9.28.
For full-timers in the private sector, the median was $15.25, according data from the Bureau for Labor Statistics, which tracks hourly earnings for all employees in the U.S. The gap between what people earn in a typical day and what they should earn is widening.
The average worker made $15,500 in 2017, up from $14,800 in 2016, according an analysis by the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning group.
In fact, workers who work for larger corporations made more than workers who did not.
The number of people earning less than $15 per hour also grew by 17 percent between 2000 and 2017, according Toilolo’s analysis.
The median hourly earnings were $13,200 in 2017.
In 2017, the average employee making $15 was making $18,800.
The share of workers earning less was 25 percent.
But the growth of lower-wage workers has been less dramatic than the growth in the share of middle-wage earners, according BLS data.
The percentage of lower income workers in total payroll employment has dropped from 25.3 percent in 2000 to 22.8 percent in 2017 to 16.9 percent in 2021.
The overall employment rate, which includes people who are employed but not yet employed, fell to 62.4 percent in 2020 from 63.2 percent in 2016.
Income inequality is a major concern for Democrats, who have fought for years to address the pay disparities in the country’s labor markets.
“It’s not just that there are people making less, but also that the gap between the top 1 percent and the bottom 99 percent is much larger than people believe,” Sen.

“When you look at this year, the top one percent of earners actually made more in 2017 than in any year since 1970.
I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but I haven’t.
I haven`t seen that since I was a child.”
The disparity between the rich and poor is a persistent issue for the Democratic Party, and it has made it difficult for the party to win back voters, particularly white voters.

The issue has taken on a life of its own in recent years as Republican lawmakers and President Trump have pushed back against attempts to pass more progressive legislation on the issue.
The Trump administration has pushed back hard against efforts to overhaul the tax code or make changes to the nation`s healthcare system, arguing that the legislation is too far to the right.
Trump has also repeatedly taken a hard line on undocumented immigrants in recent months, saying that the current immigration laws were not tough enough.
In a tweet on Thursday, he wrote that “Democrats and Republicans are working together to fix the broken #TaxCode, but they are not the same thing!”
Trump has threatened to veto any bill that attempts to raise taxes on the middle class.
And he has repeatedly accused Democrats of wanting to give illegal immigrants amnesty to keep the U,S.
from cracking down on illegal immigration.
The President has also proposed new border security measures, and he has
