Supplementary notes

*A percentile wage shows the percentage of workers in an occupation that earn less than a given wage and the percentage that earn more. The median wage is the 50th percentile wage estimate - 50 percent of workers earn less than the median and 50 percent of workers earn more than the median.
Fast food cooks prepare and cook in a fast food restaurant with a limited menu. Duties of the cooks are limited to preparation of a few basic items and normally involve operating large-volume single-purpose cooking equipment.
The data used is based on the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey which measures occupational employment and wage rates for wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments, by industry. Employees are all part-time and full-time workers who are paid a wage or salary.
