Here’s how many Whatcom County jobs offer annual salaries of $100,000 or more

The Bellingham Herald

Whatcom County also trails the national average in terms of adding six-figure salaries. Between 2015-2018, the percentage increase of that salary level rose 79.7%; the national average increase for the same period was 84.6%.

One factor for Whatcom’s slower increase is that this area has a relatively small economy, said Hart Hodges, co-director at the Center for Economic and Business Research at Western Washington University. He noted that nationally the jobs with the most six-figure salaries are operation managers and software developers, occupations Whatcom doesn’t have many of because of the smaller population.
