Those in the creative field still have a chance to make a living doing what they love.

According to a wage index released today by Payscale, media and publishing jobs experienced the largest annual growth in wages in the past year.

This is a huge shift compared to the industry's "little to no growth" between 2008 and 2011.

The Payscale Index reported that those in the media industry — which includes public relations jobs, entertainers and performers and media and communication workers — saw a wage increase of 4.6 percent between 2011 and 2012. This is higher than the 4.4 percent that those with IT jobs experienced.

Here are other jobs that experienced substantial pay increases in the past year:

Huge distortion I see right off the bat with #1, #3 and #4.

The Public Relations (#1 & #4) as well as the Construction industry (#3) were some of the hardest hit sectors of the economy as a percentage since the start of 2008. Wages are still depressed in these areas compared to 2007/2008 levels. They are only showing the growth from 2011 to 2012.

I can’t access all the data shown here to compare what I have previously researched. So I do not know on what they are basing the numbers. Are they including those entering or re-entering the market Vs lost jobs?

They’re definitely not including journos in with that media wage figure. And construction ain’t nothing to write home about either.

Journalists,; are there really any of them still left?

The song “Dirty Laundry” always comes to mind whenever I read something like this.....anything that guts the news readers.
