For seasoned Silicon Valley tech workers 6-figure salaries the norm

Dashboard 1( – According to a new PayScale study, most Silicon Valley tech workers pull down salaries that many never achieve – upwards of $100K per year or more. While this is the look at “mid-career” workers (on the job at least 10 years), at more prominent companies like Google or Facebook, this can be achieved in fewer than 5 years.

This means professionals with the right skills are earning twice the average American household income (just over $50K), and then some. The study focuses only on high level technicians, many of whom are independent contractors (leaving out, for example, custodial, food service and security work), the results of this study indicate clear economic benefits to having a facility with information systems, programming and coding.
