The salary of a machine feeder can vary greatly depending on the years of skill and the country or city that they are working in. In the United States, the median income for most machine feeders is around $25,000 to $27,000. Each country pays their workers differently, depending on the machine manufacturing that is being conducted
After they have gained a year or more experience, they have a higher earning potential and can eventually be put on a salary scale, depending upon their expertise. Those who work salary wages, tend to make more per year than those who are paid on an hourly wage.
The advantages of hourly wages allow for the machine feeders to earn production rates and bonuses. This means that when they are on production they earn bonus amounts for work that is accomplished.
