According to the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual mean wage for American workers was $46,440.
Since 2002, the total compensation of an experienced teller has fallen 3.8% after adjusting for inflation, according to data from Crowe Horwath run through the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ inflation calculator. During the same time, a commercial loan officer’s compensation has risen by an inflation-adjusted 9.8%.
