According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment in education, training, and library is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029. The reason for this increase is the increase in students enrolling in schools.
According to BLS, the median annual wage for sales and related occupations was $52,380 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950.
