This report seeks to illustrate and articulate the US nuclear power industry as a driver of highly educated, high-skilled workers who earn premium wages.
The nuclear power sector provides 20 percent of the electricity needs in the US, and it supports tens of thousands of well-paying jobs throughout the country.
In 2017, the nuclear power generation industry employed nearly 48,400 workers in the US paying an average salary of $136,600. This exceeded average regional wages across the country and placed nuclear power as the highest paying industry in the electric power generation sector.
With such high wages, it’s not surprising that skilled occupations account for nearly 86 percent of total jobs in the industry.
