Abstract:

This thesis makes extensive use of archival data in the public sector to ascertain and compare the level of wages and compensation among industries, concentrating on the aerospace industry in particular. The segments which comprise the industry are analyzed extensively and trends noted and discussed. A review of factors found by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to influence pay in domestic manufacturing is included and the applicability of these factors to the aerospace industry is examined where possible. Some theoretical concepts of wages are discussed in order to provide a perspective from which to review the findings of fact and to provide a most useful construct with which to pursue further investigation.
