The US has one of the highest salaries in the world, according to a recent report.
A US government analysis of pay data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that engineers at Lockheed Martin and Boeing earned an average of $78,500 annually.
That’s a significant amount of money, but it doesn’t account for the amount of work that goes into developing and delivering products like aircraft, weapons, and ships.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis has estimated that engineers make an average salary of $84,200.
Lockheed Martin’s highest-paid employee is a $98,500 CEO, Mike Bostrom, who earned $5.8 million in 2015.
That salary is also $6,100 above the median salary for engineers.
Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg earned $1.8 billion in 2016.
The highest-paying engineers in the U.S. make more than $120,000 per year.
