Wage & Benefits Report

Published annually, Dollars and Sense reports on starting, not average, wages and benefits for workers across Elwood's footprint.

Elwood's Dollars and Sense report contains wage and benefits data for administrative and production workers in manufacturing, distribution, and other facilities throughout the U.S. Unlike other resources that report averages, Dollars and Sense focuses on the wages and benefits offered to entry-level workers within the first 365 days on a job. This unique approach allows us to paint a more accurate picture of actual offerings, as our data is protected from the influence of accrued wage raises or earned benefits.
