Connecticut Pharmacy Technician Average Salary – CT
A study completed by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics in May 2009 revealed that the average salary for a pharmacy technician in Connecticut fell at around $28,977 per annum, with $14.50 as the average median hourly pay rate. The study also revealed that the State of Connecticut employed 326,300 pharmacy techs in the year 2008. That number is expected to increase by 25 percent by the year 2018.
Seasoned pharmacy technicians and professionals who have been certified in the field will profit the most from the growing job demand. As they gain experience, their salaries can elevate as high as $23.32 per hour, with a potential for even greater salary growth in the future. The increase in demand is partially due to the increase in population of middle aged and elderly people, who will dominate the pharmaceutical consumer market within the next 10–20 years.
