Wage rates rise.

Wage Rates Rise.

From a survey of more than 1,130 Alaska firms, the Alaska Department of Labor determined that wage rates climbed last year for a majority of workers in the state. In Labor's report, Alaska Wage Rates for Selected Occupations 1989, 67 percent of all occupations statewide saw an increase in nonunion wage rates. The increase was particularly evident in the clerical, administrative support, and production/construction occupations.

The publication also noted union wage rates were higher last year than nonunion rates in 89 percent of the occupations that reported data for both union and nonunion firms.
