Pay for software developers has been trending downward for years.
That has left software developers with fewer options for getting their paychecks.
Now the bureau is putting out a report that shows how much a software developer’s income can go down for a typical year.
The BLS defines a software development worker as someone who has been with a company for three years or more.
It also defines a worker as a full-time employee for an organization that has more than 50 employees.
The bureau uses data from the Bureau’s Survey of Employers and Industries.
It has more data than any other government agency and it gives employers an estimate of what they can pay a software engineer.
The report is expected to be released in mid-January.
Here’s how the bureau defines a typical software developer: $23,000 per year Median salary in 2017 for software engineer, with a base salary of $23.000 per month Source CBS News
