The top pay for top tech workers in America is up 5% year-over-year, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

But while the number of employees who made $100,000 or more a year climbed by more than 7% last year, the number who earned $200,000 a year jumped by only 3.2%.

The BLS data shows that nearly all of the increases in pay are for top-level employees, such as COOs and CFOs.

The biggest pay bump is for top executives, who have been getting paid more than $100 million over the last year.

In 2018, the average salary for the CEO of a company that has more than 20,000 employees was $150,000, up from $133,000 in 2018.

The median salary for tech workers rose by almost 2% last fall to $81,000.

But those figures don’t take into account all the money that some of those employees made from other companies, such a technology startup or even a private equity firm.

Here’s a look at the top 10 highest-paid people in tech, according with their total compensation.1.

Matt Cutts, chief technology officer, Amazon2.

Jeff Bezos, founder and chief executive, Amazon3.

Jeff Barr, chief financial officer, Twitter4.

Andrew Garfield, president, Instagram5.

Andrew Puzder, secretary, CKE Restaurants6.

Brad Smith, president and CEO, Microsoft7.

Peter Thiel, co-founder and CEO of PayPal8.

Larry Page, CEO, Google9.

Eric Schmidt, executive chairman, Alphabet10.

David Pogue, executive vice president, IntelThe data shows some companies with huge salaries have seen huge increases in their total pay.

But the data doesn’t take out compensation from the people who make up the vast majority of the workforce at these companies.

For example, the median annual pay for people in the tech industry was $111,000 last year — up from just $89,000 just five years ago.

The top tech employees have also been getting a big boost in pay as the economy has been recovering from the recession.

The BSA data shows tech companies have made a lot of progress since the last recession.

In fact, the most recent employment report showed tech companies added 3.7 million jobs last year and added 2.4 million jobs in 2020.

However, they added only 2.1 million jobs each year from 2009 to 2016.

This has put pressure on wages.

The average annual pay of a tech worker last year was $91,000 and it was up only 2% from $90,000 two years ago, according the BLS.

The average salary of a high-tech worker in 2020 was $133.50 an hour, up just 3% from last year’s average.

The number of jobs that tech companies are adding is up, too.

For the first time since 2007, tech companies had more than 50,000 new employees in 2020, according BLS figures.

The number of tech jobs in America increased by 7.1% last decade to about 7.8 million.
