While Healthcare and Social Services Workers in New York enjoy regular increases in their median wage every year, the yearly increases in median wages in New York have decreased somewhat since the passage of the Affordable Healthcare Act, along with a lower inflation rate, causing somewhat stagnating wages. Simply said, it's not as lucrative to work in the Healthcare industry as it once was in New York -- despite a growing number of jobs. This is calculated by the total wages of Healthcare and Social Services Industry, divided by the median wage, then looking at difference compared to the previous year. One upside of the Healthcare and Social Service Industry was it does not see the dip in wages that other industries during recessions -- it's a largely recession-proof industry.
