The Annual Survey of Hourly-Paid Employees provides comprehensive coverage of skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled hourly-paid positions; from assemblers to team leaders, from millwrights to warehouse workers, including both production and non-production job classifications, and apprentice positions. The report includes samples for many hard-to-find positions and is considered a premier source for warehouse positions.

Data for hourly-paid positions is presented for the entire province and then divided into sub-categories by geographic location, size of employer, industry, and union status. This provides users with a variety of viewpoints from which to benchmark.

Every position includes a brief job description, the weighted average hourly rate, the median hourly rate, and the 10th, 25th, 75th and 90th percentiles.

The report also includes practical coverage of popular benefits and HR policies and practices, including lead hand premiums, shift premiums, overtime premiums, tool, equipment, clothing allowances, as well as stand-by and call-back pay. Detailed coverage of healthcare and dental benefits, pension plans, turnover, and many other policies and practices are also included.

“The reports are a great reference when coaching department managers on how to understand compensation guidelines.”
