This is a slightly complicated occupational category—officially called “other" life, physical and social science technicians. It’s made up of science technicians who don’t fit the Labor Department’s specific subgroups, such as forensic science technicians or nuclear technicians. This group of “others” might include techs who collect weather information or work as radiographers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, female science techs in this group earned a median of $740 a week last year, compared with male techs, who had median earnings of $723 a week.
