Baking and cooking have always been an art form, but that’s changing, according to a new study from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The Bureau’s National Employment Statistics report shows the number of hourly workers who bake bread and bake other baked goods has grown by over 3 million jobs in the past decade.
The number of hours worked in the industry has grown from 2.5 million hours in 2005 to 4.4 million hours last year.
The most popular bakery in the country is the bakery in Kansas City, Mo., which has more than 1.4 billion square feet of space.
Bakery owners are increasingly finding that they can’t compete with Amazon.com and other online shopping outlets.
They have to pay a lot more for labor and ingredients to make their products.
The survey also found that the number and quality of the products being baked has become a factor in the increase in jobs.
The number of cakes sold by small and medium-sized businesses grew from 13 percent of total sales in 2005, to 17 percent in 2013.
The average number of days a baker worked in 2013 rose from 20 days to 30 days, according the report.
The average wages of those in the bakery industry rose by 10.3 percent last year, from $25,500 to $28,600.
The Census Bureau also noted that the average hourly wage for a bakery worker has more or less doubled over the past five years, from the $9 an hour it earned in 2005.
The report found that more and more Americans are choosing to make products for themselves.
They’re also opting to bake their own cakes.
The Bureau’s report found bakeries and other small businesses employ more than one-third of Americans who bake cakes, and two-thirds of those who bake a buns, muffins and pastries.
