Average Salary for a Pharmacy Technician in Michigan – MI

Michigan Pharmacy Tech Salaries

According a 2009 study conducted by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a pharmacy technician in Michigan falls at around $27,910 per year. The study also reports that the average pharmacy tech salaries in Michigan are at their highest in Ann Arbor, Lansing, and the metropolitan Detroit area.

Pharmacy technicians in Michigan typically start out with an average hourly pay of $9.49 an hour, or $19,660 per year. If they continue in the field, gain more education and gain certification, they can make as much as $37,960 per year.

The most recent statistics presented by the Bureau also show that the rising population of obese persons will cause significant growth in this field. According to the Kaiser family foundation, 63 percent of adults and 30.6 percent of children qualify as overweight or obese, and are therefore placed at a higher risk of diabetes and other obesity-related ailments. This leads to an increased need for medications, which in turn leads to an increased need for pharmaceutical support.

The rising population of seniors in Michigan will also create an increased need for pharmaceutical support. This, in turn, means that a career as a pharmacy tech can provide a high level of stability.
